Yeastside Brewers: July 13th Meeting, 1-5PM at Glendale Tap

When: Saturday July 13th, 1PM – 5PM
Where: Glendale Tap, 4227 San Fernando Road, Glendale, CA, 91204

Dearest Dedicated Homebrewers:

This Saturday, July 13th, we’ll be holding our meeting at Glendale Tap in Glendale, from 1PM to 5PM. Street parking of plenty is available nearby. Please plan responsibly!

Sour Ales will be the beer style of the month. Glendale Tap 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 Glendale Tap is a retail tap room, please limit yourself to one bottle of homebrew. They have upwards of 52 craft beers on tap, so let’s enjoy what they can provide us!

Things to bring to Saturday’s meeting:

  • Tasting glass (YSB glasses are still for sale, see below)
  • Homebrew
  • Snacks
  • Money to buy beers at the bar

Upcoming Events

Yeastside Brewers will be collaborating with Long Beach Homebrewers to do a South Bay brewery tour. Please sign up with Dave Ochoa via email or at the meeting. July 20, 2013 is the date scheduled for this event. We’ll be renting a tour van and driver.
