CLUB MEETING @ THE LOST KNIGHT: 1538 W SUNSET BLVD, ECHO PARK – SEPTEMBER 12TH, 2PM – 6PM – BELGIAN ABBEY ALES

Being British, the owners of The Lost Knight have taken the best elements of the British Pub and created an authentic Public House right in our neighborhood.  They have 13 beers on tap (including a cask or two on beer engine), darts, and authentic pub grub with a few modern twists.  We’ll be meeting upstairs in the otheroom, which has its own set of otherbeers on tap and a great outdoor patio which we’ll have access to.

Hey everyone, hope all’s brewing well with you.  We have a lot of info on several upcoming events, so please read through.  We hope to see you out there with us!

CLUB MEETING @ BARREL DOWN: 525 W 7TH STREET, DTLA – AUGUST 1ST, 2PM – 6PM – BELGIAN SAISONS

Barely 2 months open, Barrel Down has already proven to be a great place to find awesome craft beer in Downtown LA.  40 handles showcase 20 core and 20 rotating taps of the best beers that Cali and the rest of the US have to offer.  We may be meeting in their private upstairs room, construction permitting (it’s that new!).  Saison is the style of the month, so bring your examples (and any others), but please limit to 1 or 2 bottles, as we should certainly support this new and gracious addition to the DTLA craft beer scene.  Bonus points: this date is also the AHA’s National Mead Day, so if you have some that’s ready to serve, by all means, bring it along.

REMINDER: LA County Fair Entries due July 24th

Entries for the Los Angeles County Fair Homebrew Competition are due at Eagle Rock Homebrew Supply no later than noon on Friday, July 24th.  One entry consists of two 12-oz bottles and the cost per entry is $9.  If you don’t have entries but would like to learn more about how beer is judged and how a competition is run, you might volunteer to steward for this competition, which will be judged at MacLeod Ale Brewing Company on August 1st.  In any case, for more information and to register your entries or as a steward, visit the Maltose Falcons page.

Entering competitions is not only a great way to get qualified feedback on your creations, but also a means to increase the visibility and credibility of your Yeastside Brewers homebrewing club.  Some of these comps count toward the Anchor Homebrewing Club of the Year, which is a great honor, not to mention the amazing party they throw at the brewery in San Francisco for the winners.

On the horizon remain the Pacific Brewers Cup and the California State Homebrew Competition.  Please visit their sites for more information.

Go Yeastside Brewers!!!
