Pacific Gravity 25th Anniversary Summer Party Virtual From Smog City Brewing!

Greetings Pacific Gravity!

I hope this message finds you all safe and healthy as we continue to shelter in place through the summer!  We are holding this club together using technology, innovative thinking and good friends in brewing!  As you all may have guessed by now, there will be no summer party at Dean’s party pad this month!  And it is a real shame too as we had finally convinced him to allow us to dig a pit in his yard (this year only!) for a whole pig roast to celebrate our 25th anniversary!   He was also going to empty his pool and allow us to turn it into a skate park!  That would have been a rocking event!  Oh well!  The pandemic has forced us to change our plans!  That 25th anniversary version of our summer party will have to occur next year.

This year we will be virtual and we are serving you up a great one to celebrate with your fellow club members!  Jon and Laurie Porter have graciously agreed to host our 25th Anniversary Virtual Celebration of our annual summer party.   For those of you who have been attending our virtual club meetings and first Friday’s will have some clue about how this is going to work.  Porter has put together what we consider a fantastic package of extremely drinkable beers plus a gift for each member who participates!

The plan for this summer party is this, you buy the beer package from Smog City (link: )  Then cook yourself what ever summer party food you want to eat, then join us Saturday July 25, 2020, starting at 4 PM on the virtual Zoom meeting and drink Smog City beer and eat and enjoy being with your friends (virtually)!

It has been suggested that I send out some recipes from summer party favorites of the past for folks to use if they so desire, which I will do in a follow up post.

The beer package from Smog City will include:
2 From LA wit Love (a very easy drinking White Ale)
2 Sabre Tooth Squirrel (a Smog City classic hoppy Amber Ale)
2 Amarilla Gorilla (West Coast IPA)
1 Bourbon OE (Barrel Aged Barleywine)
Plus each order will include a complimentary Smog City Tulip Glass to drink your beer from!
The cost of the entire package is $33.00.

The great thing about Smog City is they will deliver your summer party beers right to your door!  No need to raid Ian’s garage!  It should be noted that if you order $50 or more, your delivery is free!    So, check out their website and add on another 6 pack to your order and receive the free shipping option!  Please remember to tip your driver though!

The PG beer package will be available starting on Friday July, 17, 2020.
Our Summer Party virtual event will occur on Saturday July 25th starting at 4 PM till…
Jon and Laurie will be joining us to talk about how Smog City is doing during the pandemic, their upcoming plans to open new locations and talk about the beers!

We are trying to incorporate door prize giveaways as well, so there will be prizes!
Please look for my follow up post with favorite recipes from Summer parties past.

We are not posting the Zoom link publicly but all members should have received an email invitation with all the details.  If you did not get the email but want to join the meeting send me an email at [email protected] and I will forward it to you.

I hope to see you all on Saturday!
