When: Saturday June 1st, 2PM – 6PM
Where: Gayle & Louie’s House, aka AngryHorse Brewing Co., 3012 Via Breve, Montebello, CA 90640
To Our Faithful Members:
This Saturday, June 1st, we’ll be holding our meeting at Gayle and Louie Michel’s home in Montebello, from 2PM to 6PM. The weather is predicted to be hot and sunny, so I encourage you to dress appropriately and drink plenty of water. Street parking of plenty is available nearby. There is also a Gold Line station at Atlantic & Pomona, approximately 1.5 miles from their house, but using it will obviously require some logistics and planning. Whichever route you choose, please plan responsibly!
European Amber Lagers will be the beer style of the month. We’ll have some commercial samples on hand, and we welcome your homebrews of this style as well as any style of homebrew to share and discuss. Please bring a copy of your recipe to assist in obtaining helpful feedback. Your own commercial samples are welcomed as well.
Louie and Gayle will be firing up the grill for your culinary pleasure, and now is the time for you to shine and help us all out by contributing to the potluck! Please, coordinate your contribution with Dave Ochoa, VP, so we can hopefully avoid the unfortunate situation of having nine ambrosia salads and no tortillas.
They will also be doing a kegging demonstration!
Things to bring to Saturday’s meeting:
- Tasting glass (YSB glasses are still for sale, see below)
- Potluck Contributions, i.e., food (Please, coordinate with Dave Ochoa, VP, vicepresident@
- Beer kegs, CO2 and connectors (there will be at least one jockey box)
- Cobra-taps, as an alternative to the jockey box, with a keg on ice
- ICE for your kegs and for our jockey boxes
Yeastside Brewers will be collaborating with Long Beach Homebrewers to do a South Bay brewery tour. Please sign up with Dave Ochoa via email or at the meeting. More information will be coming available in the upcoming weeks. July 20, 2013 is the date scheduled for this event. We’ll be ride-sharing with the services of LA Beer Hop, who will also be making an appearance this Saturday.
