It's that time of year again when we fondly remember our compadre Doug King. Doug was a brewer's brewer - always there to lend a hand to the club or another brewer. He was also fond of experimentation and was well known for his crazy experiments (loafs of rye bread, potatoes, tortillas - all in the mash) and his love of lagers. He won the 1996 California State Fair for his Dougweiser.
The Falcons annual competition committee meeting is this Monday, Nov. 21 at 7PM. We'll be meeting at Hand Brewed Beer at 9771 Variel Ave. in Chatsworth. This is when we plan the competitions, change style guidelines, and plan judging activities for the next year. All are welcome, we need all the participation in our contests as possible.
We will be conducting the check-in for the 38th Mayfaire Homebrew Contest on Sunday, April 10 starting at 10. All are welcome to come help. If you want to see how a homebrew contest is organized, this will show you that. And, you get a free lunch if you stay and help. No experience necessary. Bring a beer or two to share. Come help the club and have a good time.
