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.

SBE August Meeting Announcement

The August meeting of Society of Barley Engineers will be at 6pm on Wednesday, August 1st at Aztec Brewery in Vista. This meeting will be a special beer and cheese pairing, where we will pair various commercial and homemade cheeses with Aztec beers and homebrew. Please note that this is not our usual location; directions are available at http://www.aztecbrewery.com/contact.html. The group meal will be Mexican chicken with all the fixings from Pollos Maria for approximately $10 per person for those interested.
