Pacific Gravity Holiday Party (Virtual) from Tortugo Brewing Saturday, Dec 12th

Greetings Pacific Gravity,

I know it has been a crazy year that has seen us all in isolation, lock-down, quarantine and unable to get together to celebrate ourselves, our club and our traditions!  In fact, this year has not given us much to celebrate at all when you think about it!  The stay at home lock down continues to this day and will impact our holiday party as a result!  But we say no to the Grinch and will celebrate anyway!  The board has some really creative ideas to try and give some semblance to our traditional holiday party…VIRTUAL of course!

6:00 PM Until ?

Here is what we have planned for this event, Joe will be offering a PG Holiday 3 pack of crowlers (32 oz cans) for $30.  These will include:

Seymour by the Fire, the Seymour Kolsch spiced with holiday spice!
Chocolate Raspberry Porter

While the Marzen may not be a holiday beer strictly speaking, is you have ever had it, you will know why it is on the list!  So, swing by the brewery and pick up your 3 pack to help get you in the mood!

But that’s not all!  The holiday party has traditionally been about the food and sharing of beers and we want to try and make that happen too!  So, we are announcing our first ever curb side pick up of beer and food for this event!  Starting at 3:00 PM on Saturday you can drop by club president and holiday elf without a shelf Ian’s house; and pick up your holiday food and beers for the party.

The beers are from the clubs ‘teach a friend to homebrew day’ when we brewed Brown Ales on Zoom.  Carl, Parker and Ian all bottled some of their beers from that day and they will be available for pick up along with the food that will be presented.  Not only that, but Carl and Dean will be bringing some of their ‘archive’ beers that will also be given away on a first come first served basis.

What about the food?  We decided to color outside the lines this year, there will be BBQ to go as the offering this year.  Ian is cooking brisket, Rob is making pulled pork and Dean will provide us with Dean’s famous beans.  The food will be placed in ‘to-go’ containers and made available when you pick up your beers.

Ian’s address is: 3938 Glencoe Ave. Venice, CA 90291
Text on arrival to: 310 435-1329 to place your order.

We have also created a Holiday Beer Gift Exchange (OPTIONAL) for those who wish to participate.
The Board has generously seeded the gift exchange with a bunch of 750 size bottles.  If you want to join in, when you show up to pick up your beer and food, you will “pick a bottle – leave a bottle” from the gift exchange box.

We ask that your bottle be a 750 in size, wrapped, in the $10 – $20 dollar price range.  To limit potential contamination, you will not be allowed to touch, please select with your eyes, then just point at the wrapped bottle you want and it will be brought out to you.

We will also be announcing the PG Board Election results as well as the Brewer of the Year and the Member of the Year as voted on by the membership.  Plus we will have giveaways!  Craig will be raffling off gift certificates and other swag to all who attend!  This should make us all merry until next year!  I hope to see you all there!
