Greetings Yeastside Brewers,

This Saturday, July 12th, we will have our meeting at 38 Degrees Ale House!  If you have never been, it is a great Craft Beer Bar with an excellent selection and great food.  Come hungry!  Please limit the home brew you bring to 1 bottle so we can partake in some great offerings.  The meeting will run from 1p – 5p instead of our usual 2p – 6p.  Also, Ohana Brewing Company has recently opened a tasting room right down the street from 38 Degrees.  Feel free to check them out before, during, or after the meeting.

Things to bring to Saturday’s Meeting:

  • Tasting Glass (YSB glasses are for sale)
  • Homebrew
  • Money or Credit Card for shirts, glassware, and commercial beers
CRAFTED Event Recap:

We had a great event a few weeks back at CRAFTED LA down in San Pedro.  If you haven’t been, it is a craft market with a variety of food, crafts, and oddities.  They were celebrating their 2 year anniversary and had local homebrew clubs pour their beers.  We had a excellent turn out and we had over 10 beers pouring!  Not to brag, but we had the nicest booth setup!  A special thanks to Victor for organizing and coordinating the event.
