10th Annual Spark of Love Toy Drive- December 1st Meeting with our 45th Anniversary collaboration beers and Potluck

This will be our 10th Annual Toy Drive to benefit those less fortunate than us. Last year we got a great amount of toys. Let's top it this year. Please bring a new unwrapped toy to benefit underprivileged children. After the meeting, we will take these to the Los Angeles Fire Department for distribution to the kids during the holidays. We will be collecting the toys at the meeting, but please feel free to bring them sooner and drop them off at the shop. We get a lot of toys for younger children, but are always short on teen and infant items.

A Guide to Kveik Yeasts

Tasting the new hotness in yeast strains - the Norwegian Farmhouse Strains collectively known as Kveik

The new hotness in yeast is actually an old hotness in yeast. Thanks largely to the exploratory and documentary efforts of Lars M. Garshol, we've been reintroduced to traditional methods of Norweigan (and Baltic and Russian) homebrewing.

Drew's 45 IPA

Drew turned 45 and what better way to celebrate turning 45 than making a birthday brew. Together we created an IPA with a nominal starting gravity of 1.074 and 74 IBUs (to reflect Drew's 1974 birthday), the beer used 4 malts, 5 hops with 45% and 45% of the malts being two base malts. The hops include a special addition - hop terpenes of Citra and Columbus for the keg

FALCONRY & THE ORDER OF ST JOHN, the true tale of the MALTESE FALCON

In 1539, Charles V, co-King of Aragon, of which Sicily was a fiefdom and Malta a part, granted use of the island of Malta to the Knights.of the Order of St John along with the responsibility of garrisoning Tripoli. In exchange for this kindness, the knights offered to celebrate a daily mass for Charles. Or, in lieu of a mass, the emperor, an avid falconer, could elect to receive a prized falcon annually in tribute. He chose the falcon.
