Date:  Wednesday, June 20th @ Booze Bros Brewery in Vista

Time: – about 6:00 PM (give or take) since we never know EXACTLY when it’ll be done

Cost: – 2.50 per gallon, all in

How to pay: Preferred: PayPal, Venmo or Zelle to Jacques. Or Exact change and Cash on the day of the event.

To make the evening more fun, I’ve asked Maurey if he can put some fun and funky beers on tap for us and he said he’d do it. I also asked that if there won’t be a food truck if we could bring pizza for us all and they’re OK with that. I’ve put it on the spreadsheet to gauge interest. We can bring bottles to share but they can only be in the event room.

If you can’t make it, try to find a friend who can bring (and pick up) a vessel for you. Maybe we can get them to hold a few a day or so if that helps.
