To follow up from our discussion at the club meeting and my meeting recap post I wanted to post a reminder to everyone that we have an AWESOME opportunity ahead of us next month for the Bite At The Beach event in Manhattan Beach.
The organizers reached out to our club to see if we were interested in donating homebrew to this event and serving it alongside some of our favorite local breweries. We have agreed to do this and we need you to brew/donate beer! The event is 26 days away which is still plenty of time to brew up a batch of beer for the event.
Here is a blurb about the event:
Stella Artois presents the first annual Bite at the Beach featuring food and craft beer pairings from all around the South Bay and Los Angeles. This will be an extraordinary event filled with delicious bites, craft beer and wine with a portion of the proceeds being donated to the Surfrider Foundation.

The event is a fundraising event for the Surfrider Foundation:
The Surfrider Foundation is a nonprofit grassroots organization dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world’s oceans, waves and beaches through a powerful activist network. Founded in 1984 by a handful of visionary surfers in Malibu, California, the Surfrider Foundation now maintains over 250,000 supporters, activists and members worldwide.
The South Bay Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation is very proud of the efforts we have made, and the successes we have achieved in making our community a better place to live and enjoy the ocean. At our core, we are an environmental organization that strives to protect and, where necessary, restore coastal and ocean ecosystems and ensure free and open access to the beach and waves. We are dedicated to making our work FUN AND REWARDING!!
This is a reminder to everyone in the club to let me know if you have a beer that you would like to donate to the event. I would like to get an idea of how much beer is going to be donated from our club by Thursday of next week (May 1st). So far we have 15 gallons that the club is bringing but we need more – please shoot me an email at [email protected] to let me know if you are planning on donating beer, what style and how many gallons (or kegs) so we can work out the serving logistics as well. There will be limited serving positions available – I am waiting to find out from the organizers how many people we can have to serve.
