Summer Party Beers



Hey, we have just a few days to go until the summer party on Saturday, July 23rd, and some of you haven’t let me know what beers and sodas you are bringing.  Please drop me a line at [email protected] to let me know what you have.  Some of you had listed “TBD”, so if you know what it is, please send me an update.  Everyone who signs up in advance will have a colorful tap tag.

As usual, we will be voting for the best beer and best specialty beverage of the party.  This year, going with the Mediterranean theme, our special beverage is any non-alcohol fruit-based beverage.   It can be carbonated or not, and may have additional ingredients.

And, remember, sodas go a long way to breaking up the heat on a long summer day, so take the opportunity to sample them liberally.

We also need jockey boxes and CO2 cylinders to help make sure all the beverages flow cold with perfect carbonation.  We have more kegs than taps on the Wave, and the jockey boxes help out big time.   If you can bring a bag of ice for each jockey box, that would help out too.   We may need a few Sanke taps, so if you have one bring it along.

If you enjoy serving beer, we’ll be setting up hour-long bartender shifts as the party gets going.  It’s easy and fun, and a great way to meet everyone at the party.   Look for the sign-up sheet at the bar.

If at all possible, please bring your kegs and heavy stuff Friday evening up to Dean’s place and help us set up.  This makes the last minute activities on Saturday morning go much more smoothly.   The early kegs get the best slots on the Wave.  Make sure all your kegs, coolers, tanks and taps are well labeled so they all return to their rightful owners Sunday morning.

We still need help with pot-luck dishes, tables, easy-ups and other miscellaneous assistance.  If you have a contribution, please contact Mimi at [email protected].

Dean Sussman’s place is at 1310 Amalfi Dr. Pacific Palisades, CA 90272.  Setup starts Friday the 21st at 6:00 PM.  The party runs from 2:00 PM to 10:00 PM Saturday, July 23rd.  Cleanup begins at 10:00 AM on Sunday morning.

Hope to see you there!
