First Friday is just a few hours away and I’m here with my hands full, racking a Belgian inspired dark ale into a Balcones whiskey barrel. 😀 There are worse ways to spend a Friday afternoon but this weekend is going to be a busy one…
Remember tonight is First Friday at Maple Block Meat Company ( 3973 Sepulveda Blvd, Culver City, CA 90230 ) and tomorrow is our November meeting and annual chili cook off at the Molloy’s place ( 6738 W. 87th Place, Westchester, CA 90045 ).
Break out your crock pots and get to stewing up some chili for the competition. As I mentioned earlier this week we’ll be supplying rice but you’re free to bring whatever sides you feel like dishing out too.
Rives will be serving his commercial Meads & Ciders tasting, and we’ll be judging the best home brew of the month too.
If you want to enter your chili for competition make sure you’re there and setup between 12 and 1pm. Voting will continue until about 3pm, at which point we’ll tally up and announce the best chili and most unique chili.
A few items you’ll want to bring:
- Hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen. The weather calls for sun.
- A chair or two. Because drinking and eating is easier sitting down.
- Something to drink out of (our lanyard & glass combo will be available for purchase if needed too!)
- Delicious home brewed beer!
Lastly, remember that we’re deciding on the 2016 Club Member of The Year AND a new President, Vice President, and Treasurer starting at this meeting. If you’d like to nominate a member for any one of those positions, drop an email with their name and the position at board @ pacificgravity. com
One more quick reminder too from our competition corner: Entries for the Inland Empire Brewers 20th annual home brew competition are due tomorrow at CCHBS. More info on that comp here: http://comp.inlandempirebrewers.com/
By the way, my apologies to the Molloy family for my butchering the spelling of their last name in my previous post. Lloyd made me do it. 😟 🙂
Alright, so I’m going to finish up here then Tania and I will be walking over to Maple Block. Hope to see you there, if you want me to save you a seat message me on Facebook!
