The DB15 is the largest beer appreciation organization in New
Jersey, but what about the East Coast?  Well it's time to make
our move.  Bring a new member to the next meeting, have them
officially register, and get a Gaslight beer compliments of the
DB15 Cask Commissioners.

Why sign up for the club dues full payment plan?

Enjoy the many benefits available to club members on the
full-payment plan. A one time fee of only $50 covers all meetings,
plus discounts for DB15 special events.

This year members received benefits that totaled well
over the dues
amount.  Substantial discounts were provided for the TAP NY
beer fest trip, the Newark Bears baseball outing, the NJ Brewers
Festival, and the Victorian Dinner.  In addition members on the full
pay plan are exempt from the individual meeting beer fee.

Ask club treasurer Brian Lynch, or any Cask Commissioner
for the full details at the next meeting.

Bucket List of Beers Tasting
Mike Rowe's How Booze Build America

The DB15 kicks off the new year with a truly special,
double knockout of a meeting.  First we will be sampling
some of those beers you always wanted to try but either
couldn't find them or passed by because they were far too
expensive.  The club treasurer has given the green light to
purchasing those costly beers that well deserve to be on the
bucket list of brews you have to try at least once.  
That will be followed by a beer club exclusive - the
showing of the award winning Mike Rowe film
How Booze Built America".

The tasting or the film alone would make for a great meeting;
together this will be the meeting of all meetings!  
If you only come to one event all year, this is it!

We're still in the process of finding those costly and elusive
brews worthy of making our bucket list so it's impossible
to list them at this time. Just come to the meeting and be
amazed at what you will be tasting!

Attention home brewers from beginners to experts - don't
forget that U-Brew can supply all your needs plus provide
expert guidance.  U-Brew is located above Gaslight; just
ask Dan the next time you're in Gaslight for a pint.


Thanks to everyone at the Gaslight who worked so hard to
make December's Victorian Dinner a night we'll all long
remember.  It was a highlight of the 2012 DB15 year!


Next meeting- 4 PM, Jan. 13, 2013
