First Friday At Three Weavers Brewing Company

Hey PG! February First Friday is just days away and this time we’re dropping in for a visit with our friends at Three Weavers Brewing Company. Meet there starting at 7:00pm on Friday and bring a friend!

Three Weavers has a roomy indoor/outdoor taproom with plenty of long tables and benches for seating and it’s a very short drive down Sepulveda Blvd. from Culver City. Bring out your appetite for local beer and dinner too as there are a few good dining options within walking distance. I recommend the pizza.

I also recommend that you bring along a clean growler to fill and take home at the end of the night. TW graciously pours growlers-to-go full of most of their beers and who doesn’t like fresh beer for the weekend?

Finally, [as always] bring a designated driver or take a ride service there and back. First Friday is the most fun when you get home safely.

Cheers To A Happy New Year!

With the holidays behind us, there is only one more party night in 2015 to go and there are just a few quick things to mention before you throw on your best suit and break out the NYE noisemakers…

Holiday Party Recap

The holiday party was a smash success and we owe a huge thank you to everyone who pitched in. Whether you helped plan, or brought a dish to share or beer, or helped during setup and clean up, it all came together perfectly and much merry fun was had.

Neil, for your generous donation of the space. Ian and Marvin, for your exceptional culinary work. Terry, for playing Santa so well, raffling off all those goodies. Mimi for helping us put it all together. Brian, Tad+Ramesh, Carl… The list is SO long. Thank you for going above and beyond.

Food and Clothing Charity Drive

Another huge thank you is in order to those guests who brought donations of food and clothing for our charity drive. We ended up with three huge boxes full and it marks a proud moment for us as a club. It was great to give something back and we’re looking forward to having a charitable piece to future events too. If you have any suggestions or ideas send them to us at [email protected] or bring them up at our next club meeting.

First Friday January 2016 Plans

Tomorrow is New Year’s Eve and I hope everyone has a great time out there (safely) with friends and family.  Because of the way the actual first Friday of the year lands, we’re pushing the PG First Friday event to Friday January 8th. It’ll be held at Father’s Office in Culver City starting around 7pm and going until as late as they’ll let us stay. While there is no reserved seating, I’ll be there early to try and hold down a table or two. Come early or come late, we’ll be there with beers on. Oh and they make a damn good pub burger too, if you’ve never had one this is your chance. It’s a Culver City treasure.

Alright, I have to go locate a magnum of Chimay (because who toasts Champagne anymore??)  and I’m hoping to see you out on Friday the 8th.

Until then, Happy New Year from the PG board!

First Friday is here and what better place to celebrate than The Doughroom! This First Friday will be a special one as Kaveh and co are graciously allowing us to have another bottle share.  Make sure you bring your best bottle (yes, only 1 bottle) to share with fellow Pacific Gravity members and patrons.

PLEASE NOTE

If you are bringing a bottle to share, you MUST purchase some food and drink as well. Lets make sure to support The Doughroom so we can continue having awesome events there like this one!

Also, they still have some Monkish beers on tap (sorry, doesn’t look like Triumphus is there any longer) and some other great beers.  And if you haven’t had their lasagna yet or the Spicy Bear pizza, you need to try them!

First Friday – Monkish Brewing Co

First Friday is upon us and this month we’ve changed it up and are going to Monkish.  The reason we decided to do this is because Triumphus is on tap!

What is Triumphus?  It is the best of show beer at the Los Angeles Belgian Brew Challenge (ran by Pacific Gravity) this year, that was won by our very own Brian Holter and Kingsley Toby!  Not only is it a delicious tripel, it will be entered as a pro-am for this years GABF!  Even more awesome, it also comes in corked bottles which are only sold at the brewery!  There are limited quantities so make sure you support the club and Monkish and buy some, it’s really good, as Henry and co have graciously supported us for this competition and even put the PG logo on the bottle! How cool is that?!

Food at Monkish

Monkish does have snacks available in the tasting room and outside food is welcome, so please make sure you plan accordingly.

Upcoming Events!

First off I hope everyone has had an awesome holiday season!  2015 is right around the corner and I wanted to remind all of you that we have a couple of events this week.

Brew Years Day

On New Years Day Kingsley and I will be hosting our “Brew Year’s Day” brew day for anyone who wants to join us.  This year we are brewing a batch of Belgian Golden Strong which we will split off 5 gallons into an old used barrel of ours to sour.  We will keep 5 gallons of the clean beer in a keg for next December’s holiday party and we will keg the 5 gallons of sour for the party as well (as long as it tastes like it is ready to go).  The recipe details and other information can be found on the event page for this brew day – or by clicking here.  Hope to see you there!

First Friday @ Public School 310

Our first First Friday of the year will be this Friday 1/2/2015 @ Public School 310.  Click here for details.

Thanks!

First Friday at the Daily Pint

The_Daily_Pint_Logo-lowres1-298x300I took an inventory of Phil’s kegs and with the help of some other members put together a list to request for some special beers to be put on for our First Friday.  Phil was more than happy to make it happen, so it looks like we will have the following beers on tap tonight:
Bruery Trade Winds Tripel
Ninkasi Imperial Red Ale
Bear Republic’s APEX IPA
Firestone OPAL
Avery’s Maharaja IPA
Sierra Nevada SummerFest (maybe)

These plus his other regular taps (and 4 on cask!) should mean that every PG member should be able to find a beer style to their liking!

Please remember the Daily Pint does not serve food so plan to either eat ahead of time or you can buy food and bring it to the Pint with you.

See you tonight!
Cheers!
Ian
