We will also start making a call out to the club for kegs of beer for the “Southern California Homebrew Festival” this is a good way to show off your beer to all the Souther Cali home brewers! Email Carl for keg registration, and we will have a sign up sheets at the next meeting too.
I have also posted the Big Brew on the website’s Event Calendar, hosted at Carl’ house May 14th. We will have sign up sheets at the next club meeting for registering if you want to be a brewer and what type of brewing you would like to do that day. All are welcome to come and learn to brew and watch how others brew their way. More info on the event here.
As well I wanted to note that Strand has invited us to some Summer events too. Unfortunately one of them is the same day as our May 14th Big Brew. Here is the Strand invite info:
Stuffed Sandwich day trip— Saturday, May 14
We’ll get on a bus at the Redondo and Marine Park&Ride lot at 11 AM, and return by 4 PM. Cost should be in the $20 range.
Early summer Beach Bar Ride–Saturday, June 4
Every summer we’ve conducted what we call the “BBBB” in mid-August. It stands for “Beach Bar Bike Ride” and is usually one of the Strand Brewers Club’s most popular summer activities.
So this year we are experimenting with trying to institute a second one.
The idea is we gather somewhere along the South Bay bike path in the morning and spend the day peddling to various top-notch beer venues along the Strand. We’ll have a pre-set list of beer stops to let you meet up with the group when you want.
For more information or to sign up for either of these activities just contact the Strand Brewers Club’s Activities Director, Jay Ankeney,
