Road Trip to Stone 13th Anniversary Fest

Stone 13th AnniversaryThis year’s event will take place Saturday, August 22, on the campus of Cal State University San Marcos in North County San Diego. And for the fourth time, Pacific Gravity will be chartering a beer bus to shuttle thirsty club members from Culver City to the first session (only) of the fest, which lasts from 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

How do you get on board? It’s easy.

BUY YOUR FESTIVAL TICKET

First, buy your own ticket to the Stone Fest’s morning Session A (only; the PG bus will NOT be traveling to the afternoon Session B). Tickets are $35 per person and are available now.

Order your tickets ASAP. Not only does the first session always sell out, but on August 15, the ticket price rises to $40. The price buys you entrance to the event, a 13th anniversary tasting glass and 10 taster pours from over three dozen breweries. And don’t forget to bring your ID. Yes, they check.

ONCE YOU HAVE YOUR STONE TICKET, BUY YOUR BUS TICKET

Then, reserve a space on the PG bus, by paying $30 per person ($31 if using PayPal). You can use the “PAY NOW” button below or drop your payment off at Culver City Homebrew Supply, or sign up for the road trip and pay at the Summer Party on July 18. Don’t delay in reserving a space on the bus either; it has sold out in previous years. Rest assured, beer drinking IS allowed on the bus –– and there will be a working bathroom on board as well!

The bus will leave from Culver City Homebrew Supply at 8:00 a.m. sharp on Saturday, August 22. Do not be late or you will be outta luck. A lunch stop (probably at one of the Pizza Port brewpubs) will be made en route home, and we should arrive back at the homebrew shop by 6:00 p.m.

By the way, Stone’s 13th Anniversary Ale, due to hit store June 29,
is an Imperial Red hop monster at 9.5% abv.

Don’t miss out on the club’s most popular road trip of the year!


Summer Party July 18th!

Saturday, July 18th @ 2:00 PM
1310 Amalfi Drive, Pacific Palisades CA

This year our theme is a Cajun! Do you like gumbo, jambalaya, red beans and rice, meats, sausages,seafood, bread pudding, apple/pecan/sweet potato pies and, oh yes, BEER? Well, this is the Pacific Gravity party which will have it all, thanks to YOU, the Regiment of Loyal Graviteers.

We Need Volunteers

Are you willing to step up and do a bit of cooking for this event?

Ian Fraser has come up with the main menu, and we need to divide some of the cooking, due to the large quantities we will be serving. Anyone willing to help should contact Ian or Michael Steinberg.

Side dishes are needed to supplement the main courses. Salads, snacks, side dishes, and desserts are welcome. If they compliment the Cajun/Creole theme, that would be ideal.

We will be having 3 competitions this year

  • Best Party Beer
  • Best Tustin Monster Brew Beer
  • Best non alcoholic beverage
