I will make a big pot of vegan sloppy joes (yes vegan get over it) but the remainder of the meal is up to you lovelies.
Please let me know what you can bring to the meeting. Bring enough for at least 15+ servings so everyone can have a taste.
Sunday July 10th - Join us for our monthly membership meeting. All are welcome!
The meeting starts at 11:00 am, with introductions and general business. The Grand Hydro - Drew - will present the style of the month "Alternative Fermentation" and provide liquid examples. Remember to bring your own tasting glass and your homebrew to share and for review by your peers.

The Grand Hydro (John Aitchison standing in for Drew as he'll be out of town that day) will present the style of the month "Mead" and provide liquid examples.

It is now Sunday afternoon. Home again after a wonderful weekend spent at the SCHF, enjoying beer at not only the Fest, but also John K's event and of course, the mighty Dead Palate's Soiree. But best of all was being surrounded by fellow Falcons. Whether serving beer at all our taps (38 at one point), or going from club to club to try their wares, or dancing to the Mighty Maltose Falcons Brews band, our members rock.
Get ready for a very special Maltose Falcons event - the Annual Ladies Brew Session on Sunday, May 15th!!
Falcons former Prez and current Member at Large Nancy Gold & Activities Director Tiffany Ashrafi will lead an all-women brew crew in making a Firestone Union Jack Clone - Nancy is known for her expertise in brewing IPAs (and Tiffany really enjoys drinking them).
Our annual Brew With a Falcon day is set for Saturday, June 25th! Here's the skinny: a few members of the club, will be opening up their homes to other folks to brew together. Most of these sites will be unlike a shop brew - there will be no wort for members to take home. Instead, brewers will signup and on Saturday, June 25th you'll go to your chosen location and hang out, learn and help out.
Falcons, prepare yourselves for a very special Club Brew Session! This month, Co-Vice President and past President and the Falcons' unofficial lager Emperor John Aitchison will lead the crew in brewing a rare and delicious authentic Czech dark lager at his shop, Tavern Services, on Saturday, March 19. John has a smaller system than the club's system at the Home Beer Wine and Cheese Making Shop, so there are 5 slots open.
So we set our mind on a hoppy American Amber. Initially at least. It turns out that it was too big to be called that, Imperial Red would be more accurate. However, the BJCP nor the Maltose Falcons style guidelines have such a style, it would fall in the American Strong Ale according to BJCP and Double IPA under Maltose Falcons definitions.
Beer season is in high gear!
Hey Falcons! If you haven't noticed, beer season is in high gear already. After our own Doug King
competition kicked things off, this weekend sees Romancing the Beer followed soon after by the LA Belgian
Beer Challenge, Jeff Sanders Memorial, America's Finest City and the 1st Round National Homebrew
Competition. Of course right on the heels of those competitions is the start of Festival Season with SCHF,
Mayfaire Festival and Competition, LA Beer Week and much much more. So basically it's time for all of you
