March meeting notes

Nick continued to distribute the fantastic Dark Matter t-shirts that all 2014 paid club members were eligible to receive as a benefit of membership.

Upcoming club events include March 19 Thirsty Third Thursday (location TBD – either Mission Creek Brewing or Harry’s Hofbrau San Jose – watch the email list for details a few days before), a members-only vertical tasting of Bigfoot, and an April SF public transit pub crawl led by Charles. Dates for the pub crawl were narrowed down to April 18 or 19 – Charles will poll the email list before making a final decision.

As the club explores a move to potential new meeting locations later this year, we thanked Nick for many great years of hosting at his house. More information will be forthcoming from club officers, but anyone with suggestions for potential meeting places was asked to contact any of the club officers (Jim W, Derek W, Nick O, Pranab S, Tim T, or Mike C).

Beers tasted included both commercial brews from club members as well as homebrews:

Nic M’s Choco Chocolate Milk Stout

Adam C’s Burnt Sugar Cider

David P’s (Rock Bottom) Vanilla Brown Ale

Derek W’s Kiss Me I’m Shitfaced Oak Aged Milk Stout with Whiskey and Vanilla

Rob C’s (Clandestine) Session Barleywine

Nic M’s Oaky Bourbon Barrel Porter

David P’s (Rock Bottom) Oaked Pumpkin Ale

David P’s (Rock Bottom) Double Belgian IPA

Jared’s New Nunutiny Stout
