May 6th, First Friday @ El Segundo Brewing Company
Who else had a great time at the Malloy’s place for April’s meeting?? Tumby’s Pizza was exceptional, Scott’s Belgian commercial tasting was perfect, Greg’s [sneaky] Pliny exBEERiment was eye opening, and the LABBC award ceremony was really fun. I probably owe Terry an apology for staying a lil’ too late, sorry about that bud! I get to talking when I’ve been tasting beers and time just goes by so quick. 🙂
We’ve got an exciting week coming up in the world of PG!
- Thursday is the release party at Phantom Carriage to celebrate their collaboration with Pipe Dream (Brian & Kingsley) called The Mad Plumber IPA. For those on Facebook, more info here.
- The evening after, we are booked for our First Friday event at El Segundo Brewing Company. ESBC was one of our first sponsors for LABBC this year and they really want to get to know us better. Tania and I will be there around 7pm but as usual you’re welcome to stop in whenever you can make it. The whole area is full of walking distance food options and, were I a richer man, I would be living there.
Later on in the month we’ve got a Big Brew going down at Carl’s place, that happens on the 14th as we discussed at the meeting. Also, Lloyd is putting together a recap with photos of our trip this past weekend down to Temecula for the Southern California Homebrew Fest. It was my first time going and I am totally hooked, had an excellent time and I’m already looking forward to next year.
Sidenote on that topic: I brought home a partial keg of (tasty) Red IPA that has no name on it. If you are missing your contributed keg, shoot me an email with a description of it, to prove you own it (the owner will know what I mean) and I’ll get it back to you. For now it’s on gas in my kegerator and subject to weekly taxation. 😀
Finally, in planning for May’s meeting in a few weeks here: We’re still looking for a volunteer to handle the commercial tasting of Alternative Fermentables Beers. If you’re up for the challenge, please reach out to me at the [email protected] email address.
Looking forward to our next beer together!
