Beer Guy goes national

Wednesday, September 18th, 2013

Tuan is a great guy, beer nerd and brewer. He has a new facebook page you should like/follow/whatever. Good stuff.

It’s international beer day! Who knew?

I am not kidding! International Beer Day!

Next meeting will be the August 18th to not crowd the Haus Staudt beer tasting, meeting details to follow soon.

Due to a friends birthday celebrations I cannot make the Haus Staudt beer tasting, please let me know if you want my spot. It’s $39, includes 10 rare beers that you won’t find out here, appetizers and a tasting only outing at the beer garden. Email if interested.


Next meeting – July 21st 6:30pm @ Haus Staudt – outside!

Monday, July 19th, 2010

It’s that time again, our next meeting looms. I was thinking in honor of the world cup a Spanish versus Germany replay via head to head beer tasting. It’s proving harder than I expected due to the fact that Spain seems to lack a lot of Craft breweries but I think I’m on to a few quality beers from Spain. So it’s 6:30pm, July 21st, outside.

Volker mentioned he has a limited 20 person (10 seats still available) tasting of rare and innovative beers hosted by Chris (well known on the forums of Beer Advocate for his insight into the taste and styles of beer) at the Haus in August. Details and cost can be found at the Haus. If interested, stop on by the Haus to make your reservation. Think I mentioned Haus Staudt enough? Many thanks to Volker for allowing us to meet at his fine German beer garden.

K&L put a bunch of recently arrived beer on the shelves this weekend, expect an email with details from Bryan this week or just stop by and peruse the new cold locker. Their renovation is nearly complete.

A brewers among us should check out the South Bay’s brewing club – Worts of Wisdom. They had a great showing at the San Mateo Fair beer judging and are a wealth of information for virgins and veterans alike. They are also sponsored by More Beer, the peninsula’s best place to buy brewing supplies.

It’s also time to renew the dues, renewal is $50 for the year or you can pay as you go if you only attend a few meetings a year. For the dues you get to see me! Every month! How awesome is that? Oh and monthly tastings, a bbq, camaraderie and the 411 on the local craft beer scene. It’s a bargain!

Oh and Jerry is a grandfather! So if you want to congratulate him, send emails to Jerry AT =)

Craft Beer in A Can? A Gutsy Move Is Paying Off

September 5, 2009
Putting good beer in a can used to be considered something close to blasphemy, but that’s how several brave craft breweries across the country have recently started offering their beer. And despite the stigma, sales are booming — especially in Anchorage, Alaska.

“For decades, bad beer — cheap beer, I should say; no beer is bad — cheap beer has been in a can,” says John Burket with a laugh…
