SBE April Meeting – Advance Notice

SBE Members,
We are sending out an early notice for the April meeting since both the day and location of our meeting is changing. Please mark this on your calendars:

The April meeting of the Society of Barley Engineers homebrew club will be held on Tuesday April 7th @ 6pm at Booze Brothers Brewing Company in Vista. We will feature guest speaker, Kelsey McNair who will speak on “Mastering the Art of Hop-Fu!”. Kelsey is a self-proclaimed hop-head that that has won three NHC gold medals for his Hop-Fu! IPA and also won the 2010 Stone AHA rally competition which provided us with the Kelsey McNair/Stone Brewing/Ballast Point Session IPA. This presentation will be a precursor to his presentation at the National Homebrew Conference.

Booze Brothers beer will be available and we will have catered food from Feliccia’s Italian Restaurant. We will be sending out an RSVP announcement a few days before the event which will have more details.

Event: Bicycle Tour de Vista

The Society of Barley Engineers is planning a biking tour of breweries in Vista for Sunday Febrewary 23rd starting at 1pm. The plan is to visit 8 breweries that are spaced 2-12 minutes apart by bike. This is not a drinking tour with bikes, but a biking tour with beer samples, so safety and moderation are paramount. The tour is approximately 10 miles (although there are some shortcuts if you are so inclined) with approximately 1 hour biking time. We will start with a taster at Indian Joe brewery in Vista at 1pm, after which we will bike to Mother Earth (Thibodo), Booze Brothers, Barrel Harbor, Latitude 33, Belching Beaver, Iron Fist and conclude at Aztec.

There are some moderate hills, so bikes with gears are recommended.

If you are interested in attending, please fill out the following RSVP form:
