LA Beer Week and July Meeting at 38 Degrees


The AHA’s National Homebrewer’s Conference for 2015 has now come and gone. I’m certain that fun was had by all. Thanks to all 13 Yeastsiders who made the trek to San Diego and supported our club during the Social Pour and Club Night. Congratulations go to our very own Luis, Gayle, and Nathan of Angry Horse Brewing for their Hooligan English IPA’s runner-Up win in the Homebrew Label Awards competition!
