Happy Hour - Poseidon Brewing

Come join the crew this week for Friends of the Falcons Happy Hour this Friday 8/7 @ 5pm (PST)

As some of you might know, every week since the safer-at-home directive began, the Maltose Falcons have been hosting a virtual happy hour on Zoom. It's been a great way to reconnect! One thing we felt was missing though is that when people talk about what's in their glass, nobody else can taste it. Well, we thought about it and came with an idea!

Stuffed Sandwich Lunch to Support Marlene

The shutdowns surrounding the current pandemic have been stressing out our local beer businesses. While we've been able to show love to our breweries with the club happy hour - the same hasn't been possible for our favorite haunts and now one of the oldest Falcon haunts needs our help. 
 

The Stuffed Sandwich in San Gabriel has shown the Falcons a lot of love over the years and has been a bastion of good beer before people knew what that meant.

July Meeting - Hops with Matthew Brynildson

It's time for our next in a series of virtual meetings! This time, we're going to be covering Jim Moorman's favorite subject - hops!

Our Special Guest Speaker is Matthew Byrnildson of Firestone Walker Brewing. Did you know that he started his career as a hop chemist? Now you do!

Also please make sure to grab someone's homebrew from the cooler, so we can share and talk about it!

Yes, 2021. The 2020 version has already been canceled. And 2021 reservations are rapidly being sold out.

We’re shooting for early deals on flights, hotels, and reserved tables in the beer tents.

The Pale Ale Challenge

By Bernard Lebel

Back in January, my friend Scot Beidelman approached me with this idea: let's enter a pale ale in the Mayfaire competition, and see who wins. Now the important part is about winning. It was not about making your favorite beer, but to make a beer that was so in line with the style guidelines that it would win. I was in. Scot went around and recruited a bunch of brewers to participate.
