December Meeting – Holiday Beers at Stuffed Sandwich

When: Saturday December 1st, 2PM – 6PM
Where: 1145 E. Las Tunas Dr. San Gabriel 91776

Our final meeting of the year brings us to a true LA beer institution! Sam and Marlene opened the Stuffed Sandwich in 1976 and moved to their current location in 2003. There is a huge selection of bottled beers, including some great vintage bottles available. If you have never visited, then there are some important details to know: Due to their alcohol license, they cannot sell you beer without a food purchase, so plan on getting some lunch. Order your food first, then go to the beer counter to get a beer. You should bring your own full sized glass for beer, unless you want to purchase a glass to take home, or drink out of a paper cup. You should also bring a tasting glass to sample homebrew (or buy a Yeastside glass). Speaking of homebrew, please limit the beer you bring to one bottle. We want to support this Mom and Pop shop! The club will find a nice big bottle to buy and share amongst members too.
The style of the month is Holiday Beers, but feel free to bring any type of homebrew. Consider bringing a copy of your recipe, as that only helps when discussing your beer and getting feedback. Please do not bring commercial beers along to this meeting.

Club board elections are this month, and just like last December we have one person running for each position. Rather than filling out paper ballots, we’ll do a simple “yay or nay” voice vote. Here are your candidates:
Treasurer – Danny Exum
Administrative Coordinator – Jeremy Stacy
Competition Coordinator – Jeff Koehler
Vice President – David Ochoa
President – Jerl Leutz (Vice President of the current year is always President Elect for the following year)

Check out the website for upcoming competitions. Next up is the Doug King Memorial, in which the Best Of Show will be brewed at Eagle Rock Brewing Company as their 2013 GABF collaboration beer. Upcoming meetings will be at the homebrew shop in January, and Scott Piotrowski’s house in Februrary for a brew day.
