Club Meeting and other event dates!!

Sorry for the late announcing of this months club meeting which will be held at the:
Culver City Homebrew Supply store this week June 16th at 7:30pm.
4234 Sepulveda Blvd, Culver City, CA 90230. Style of the Month is All Lagers for homebrewers and International and Czech Lagers for the commercial tasting. There will be a raffle, food, and sign up sheets for next month’s Summer Party for volunteers, beer, and food.
Also if you still need to brew beer for the Summer Party, all club nights held at the Culver City Homebrew Supply shop is double discount nights, So bring you recipes and buy some homebrew supplies!!

We have some more events coming up in July, so set your calendars!

July 1st for First Friday will be south of us at King Harbor’s Waterfront Tasting Room, in the Redondo Pier area! really close to Naja’s Place. Go down via Uber or Lyft and check them out, have a few of their beers and if you need more then head next door. Waterfront Location: 132 International Boardwalk, Redondo Beach, CA 90277
(Note: Do not mistake the location with King Harbor’s actual brewery located at 2907 182nd street Redondo Beach, California 90278)

July 10th for Sunday Funday in the Arts Disttrict, Downtown LA!! This should be a real fun bar crawl in a cool part of downtown with a lot of great beer bars, food, and Breweries. Plus the highlight event where we get a personal tour from club friend Devon Randall, aka Head Brewer at the Arts District Brewery.
The Plan: So the Expo Line just opened up all the way the Santa Monica, so this is a great excuse to use it. The train’s will take you all the way to the Arts District area. Plan on getting on the trains about 10am-10:30am to meet at our first location: Wurstkuche at 11am, where you can get the best sausages in town and some awesome German and Belgian beers. Then about 12:30pm-1pm we head across the street to the Arts District Brewery, where we will meet Devon, drink her beer’s, eat more food, and set off on a personal tour of the brewing facilities. After a good while of hanging at the brewery, the next stop we leave it up to the group, or the individuals. I might head to 82 the Arcade Bar, or Mumford Brewing a few block away. There is also Angel City Brewing and Eat Drink Americano real close too. A bit farther you can cab it to Iron Triangle Brewing, Little Bear, or Villains Tavern. Check out all the links I added to each location, I will announce at the June club meeting and post more about the schedule closer to the date of the event.

July 23rd for Pacific Gravity’s Summer Party!! Definitely set your calendars for this, the biggest event of the year! We will have sign up sheet at this thursday’s club meeting for volunteers, beers, and pot luck food. We will also be looking for some special volunteers to help out Ian with the food duties as well, the week before, during set up, and during the summer party day since he is not as mobile as usual. We will make the official announcements at the meeting this Thursday at the Culver City Homebrew Supply shop.

February 18th, 2016 Club Meeting at Neil’s Complex

This months club meeting is going to be a special one. Last year we celebrated out 20th anniversary in February, so this year we are turning 21. Our club’s at the legal drinking age!!

As well we will have the november chili cook off big brew Wiezenbock’s, brewed by Dan White and fermented out by Carl, Michael Musgrave, and Terry all will be pouring as well. So you can compare the differences from the Firestone brew and then three different fermented Wiezenbock’s from one big brew done with the same receipt, but fermented out by multiple people. So do not miss this meeting!! Also if your up in Paso Robles the “Pacific Gravity Homebrew Club Wiezenbock collaboration” is on draft at the Visitor Center!!

IT’S ALMOST PARTY TIME!!!

This is a final reminder that we need your help to make this a successful party.
We need FOOD, BEER, assorted EQUIPMENT, DONATIONS FOR FOOD & CLOTHING DRIVE, and VOLUNTEERS FOR setup and cleanup. See details below.

It is time for the Pacific Gravity and Culver City Homebrew Supply Shop annual holiday on Saturday, December 12, 2015 at Neil Saund’s party duplex. Neil’s address is:  12966 Rubens Ave. Los Angeles, CA. (It is the house on the corner of Alla Rd. and Rubens Ave.)
The party will kick off about 5:00 P.M.  This is one party not to be missed!

FOOD:

Although the club will be providing much of the main dishes, this is still a potluck party and YOUR favorite party dish will sure be appreciated!  The menu should mostly reflect past holiday parties featuring Carbonnades ala Flamande, prime rib ala BBQ, deep fried turkeys, spiced ham and much more! Suggestions would include any kind of main dish but especially all side dishes, veggie dishes, salads, desserts and appetizers. So, if you have a favorite family holiday recipe and want to share it with the rest of us, this is your chance!

Please let us know what you can bring! Also, contact us if you have any questions about what to bring!
Contact Club Chef Ian at: [email protected] or Mimi at [email protected].

The dinner portion of the event is scheduled for 7:30 PM.  There will little or no oven space available for reheating food, so please bring it ready to serve, not ready to cook!  Also, don’t forget to label your containers or anything you want back.

EQUIPMENT:

We set up the decorations and tree this last Sunday and installed 2 firepits so we NEED FIREWOOD!  If you can bring wood please do so!  It is forecasted to be cold on Saturday evening!

We could use a few more tables.

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. Rumor has it we may need a few Sanke taps, so if you have one bring it along.

If at all possible, please bring your kegs and heavy stuff around noon on Saturday and help us set up. This makes the last minute activities at party time 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.

For equipment, please contact us: PG Board at [email protected] or Mimi Bardet at [email protected] and let us know what you can bring.

Are you ready for our PG Holiday Party on Dec 12th?

Our annual Holiday Party is rapidly approaching and it takes a lot of effort to put together.  As with all our parties, we count on club members to volunteer to help out.  There are a number of ways you can volunteer to help.  We need help with set up and clean up, we need members to bring potluck dishes for our feast, we need members to donate beer and we need assorted equipment.

Set Up and Clean Up

Stay tuned for setup info. It’s likely that we’ll be doing two rounds of set up for the party and we’ll need help for both. The 1st round will probably be this weekend (Dec5 or 6),we’ll be meeting at Neil’s duplex to do an initial setup. Date & time details to be announced soon.  We’re planning on setting up most of our equipment and decorating the house and our Christmas tree.  We have lots of beer themed ornaments to be hung

On Saturday, Dec 12th in the afternoon we’ll be meeting at Neil’s duplex to do final set up.

On Sunday, Dec 13th – approximately late morning, we’ll meet at Neil’s duplex to clean up alter the party. (Time will be confirmed in a future communication)  We always need lots of people to help with clean up and the more we get the faster it goes.

If you’d like to volunteer for set up or clean up contact: Mimi Bardet at [email protected] and the PG Board at [email protected].

Potluck and Food

The menu should reflect past Holiday Parties featuring great food but most likely will include carbonnades, roast & deep fried turkeys, spiced ham and much more!  As is customary with our holiday parties, this is a potluck event, the club supplies the main dishes and we count on members to provide the side dishes, salads and deserts.  So if you have a favorite family holiday recipe and want to share it with the rest of us, this is your time to shine!

Please remember to label any dishes, utensils, etc. that you bring so that we can get them back to you.

If you’d like to volunteer food for the party contact: Ian Fraser at [email protected] or Mimi Bardet at [email protected]

Since it’s the giving season, we decided to have a non-perishable food drive for a local food bank at our Holiday party this year. More details to come but plan to bring canned foods and other non-perishable foods for this food drive.

Beer

We also need beer for this event, lots of beer!  Or mead!  Or cider!  We’re counting on you to provide it. So pull out your kegs and dig deep in your closet for those old tasty bottled treasures and bring them along!   Please let us know what and how much homebrew you’re planning on bringing.  Loaner kegs are available for those who are not so equipped.

Any of you who have already volunteered kegs should drop them off at the shop by 6pm on Friday, Dec 11th or bring them to Neil’s Saturday afternoon before the party.

We’ll be dispensing a lot of beer and will need more taps, jockey boxes and dispensing equipment than we currently have.  If you can volunteer dispensing equipment or can bring your new club jockey box, please let Carl know.

Please remember to label any kegs or dispensing equipment that you bring so that we can get them back to you.

If you’d like to volunteer beer for the party, contact Carl Townsend at [email protected].

Equipment

We’re still looking for some assorted equipment.  Please let us know if you can volunteer any of the following:

  • Folding tables
  • Patio heaters
  • Jockey boxes/beer dispensing equipment

Any of you who will be volunteering equipment should please try to bring it to Neil’s on the initial setup date (probably this weekend, Dec5 or 6 – exact details to be announced soon). Otherwise, please bring equipment on Saturday, Dec 12th in the afternoon before the party.

Again, please remember to label any equipment that you bring so that we can get them back to you.

If you’d like to volunteer equipment contact: [email protected] or Mimi at [email protected]

And finally, if you’re volunteering equipment, kegs or food, plan on picking up your items at the Sunday clean up. We really don’t have any capacity to store items that are not picked up.

 

Neil Saund’s duplex is located at:  12966 Rubens Ave. Los Angeles, CA
It is the house on the SE corner of Alla Rd. and Rubens Ave.

Firestone Walker: Updated Info!

Everyone-

First off – just a reminder that this event is for club members who are current in their dues.  All club members may bring one guest.

TICKET SIGNUPS

I’ve received a number of emails today about tickets so rather than respond to each one I am posting about this here.  If you signed up at the club meeting last week for the Firestone Anniversary party tickets you should have received an email from me confirming.  If you did not receive an email please email me today.  Also, if you signed up with a +1 on the same email address you should only have received a single notification from me.

If you were unable to attend the meeting last week and you have not emailed me to sign up for tickets please email me today at [email protected] if you want to secure tickets to the anniversary party.

TICKET PURCHASING

The Firestone team is going to issue a link and passcode for our club so that everyone can purchase their tickets.  I will be distributing this email to those that signed up.  This passcode will NOT be posted on the website.

Here is the link to purchase tickets: XIX ticket link

You will then be able to log in on Monday when tickets go on sale to the general public at 12pm (August 31st) and purchase your tickets at the discounted club rate.  You will be paying Firestone directly, not the club.

Our passcode is specific to Pacific Gravity.  Firestone is going to allot a fixed number of tickets to this passcode based off of signups.  If you only signed up for 1 ticket you should only purchase 1 ticket.  If you purchase more than 1 you will be stealing a ticket from your fellow club member.  Please do not do this!!

Once I have distributed the passcode to everyone who signed up I will post on the website confirming that I have distributed the code.

TICKET DISTRIBUTION

Purchasing tickets will be completed online at which point you can print up your ticket.  On the day of the event if you are attending the brew session in the morning you will be able check in for the anniversary party with your printed up ticket.  Staff from the party will be there and will be handing out wristbands to guests with tickets.  Please remember to bring your ID!

If you do not plan on attending the brew session you will need to stand in line with the general public to receive your wristband for the event.  The FW team does a pre-check for the general public starting at 9am when the line starts to form.  Doors open promptly at 11am for the public.

QUESTIONS FROM THE CLUB MEETING

A couple of questions came up regarding the big weekend at our club meeting.  Here are the Q’s along with responses:

Q: Will breakfast be provided?

A: No.  You are responsible for breakfast.  Please do not bring food to the brewery.

Q: Are children allowed to attend?

A: No.  This is a 21+ event (we are brewing beer afterall, and attending a beer party) 🙂

Q: Being Halloween weekend, is this event a costumed event?

A: Here is a costume specific post for the XIX Party.  In short, yes costumes will be worn!

There is additional information on the event website and FAQ page.
