Happy Hour Lady Face

Come join the crew this week for Friends of the Falcons Happy Hour this Friday 6/26 @ 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!

Trip to Munich Oktoberfest 2021

As I mentioned during the June 19th Happy Quarantine Hour, I and The Strand Brewers’ Club are exploring the possibilities of organizing a homebrewers’ expedition to the 2021 Munich Oktoberfest.

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.

BJCP Mead Class and Exam

On Saturday, February 1, John Kaufman is going to be administrating a BJCP Mead Tasting Exam.  You don't need to be a beer judge to take it, as long as you pass the mead on-line entrance exam you can be a mead judge.

To help prepare people for the exam, we'll be conducting three Mead Judging classes at the Home Wine and Beer Shop.  All will be on Wednesday at 7PM and be on Jan. 8, Jan. 15, and Jan. 22.  John Kaufman, John Aitchison, and Roger Taylor will be leading the class--and we can promise you plenty of great and unusual meads in the process.
