Reminder: July Yeastside meeting this Saturday at 38 Degrees Alehouse.

Hi everyone. Here’s a friendly reminder that the Yeastside Homebrewers meeting for July will be this Saturday the 11th at 38 Degrees Ale House and Grill, located at 100 W Main Street in Alhambra, CA 91801. The meeting will begin at 2pm and go until 6pm. The style of the month is “any wheat ale”, so bring ‘em if you’ve got ‘em, but as this is a commercial establishment, please limit homebrew to one or two bottles. They have an extensive tap list and good eats, so come hungry and thirsty. Parking is limited in the small lot out back (and only 2hrs for free), but there’s a large parking structure about a block and a half away, south of Main St on South 1st street – parking there is free for 4 hours.

We look forward to seeing all of you there!

Attention Members

Hello Yeastside Members,


Our April 2015 Yeastside Meeting was held April 11th at Eagle Rock Lounge with over 55 attendees and over 45 homebrews to sample. The Bragging Rights Only winner was Ward Walkup IV and his (shhhh – top secret) Stout. Our club is looking forward to presenting this entry to compete with all the other homebrew clubs at the 2015 SCHF at Vail Lake May 1-3. LET’S GO YEASTSIDERS!!

Speaking of SCHF, at last count, we have 40 campers and about 25 homebrews ready to pour at the festival. Campers, please be prepped with a cobra tap and bucket if needed to pour your beer and if you didn’t let Josh Jensen know what you’re bringing to the camp site or festival, please do so a.s.a.p.

If you haven’t bought your CHA membership or purchased your event ticket, don’t forget to do that before the cutoff of April 17th at: You will NOT be let in at the gate without pre-paid CHA membership, separate event purchase and a photo ID – NO EXCEPTIONS!

If you have any of the following items, please bring with you as well:
Folding tables, chairs, EZ-up canpoies, drip coffee pot, long extension cords, Christmas lights, 2.5 gal water jugs, firewood, lanterns, flashlights.



Will be at new member, Dave Lauridsen’s home in Glendale (watch your email for the address).

May 9th 2-6pm (yep, bumped again to the 2nd Saturday due to SCHF)

Good news…no limit on how many bottles of brew you can bring which sounds like a very busy day for UBER!!

Beer Style of the Month – IPA’s



The only way you’ll forgive yourself for missing SCHF is if you sign up for the 2015 Annual National Homebrewers Conference to be held in San Diego June 11-13, 2015


The conference is an amazing confluence of incredible beer, knowledge and community.
