November 2nd Meeting – Verdugo Bar

When: Saturday November 2nd, 3PM – 7PM
Where: Verdugo Bar3408 Verdugo Road, Los Angeles, CA 90065

Dear Yeastsiders:

This Saturday, November 2nd, we’ll be holding our meeting at Verdugo Bar in Glassel Park, from 3PM to 7PM. Street parking is available nearby. Please plan your transportation responsibly!

Belgian Strong Ales will be the beer style of the month, which is surely a favorite, especially for the holidays! Verdugo Bar will hopefully have some commercial samples on hand. We also 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.

Since Verdugo Bar is a retail tap room, please limit yourself to bringing one bottle of homebrew. They have upwards of 22 craft beers on tap!

There will also be a food truck in attendance on the patio, as well as board games to pass the time.

Things to bring to Saturday’s meeting:

  • Tasting glass (YSB glasses are for sale, see below)
  • Homebrew
  • Money to buy beers at the bar
  • Recipes for discussion
  • Self-nominations for 2014 Officer Elections

Officer Elections

Yeastside Brewers needs new officers for the 2014 calendar year. Dave Ochoa will be our president, but we still need a new VP, treasurer, administrative coordinator, and competition coordinator. One of our club’s core philosophies is to always bring in new members as officers so our club stays fresh and exciting. Check in with any of our officers to learn more about the positions should you have interest! Time is running short, and elections will be held at the December meeting.

Competitions in and around November

Please, check the site regularly for deadlines.

Group Hops & Yeast Buy

I’m still working on this, and I apologize for the delay. I hope to have it as soon as possible.
