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.

April 14 Meeting
Brewery Paraphernalia Contest
It's our first ever Brewery Paraphernalia Meeting.  Wear beer
logo attire, bring beer, and WIN prizes!  Check out the rules-

The Prime Directive –
Wear an article of clothing with a beer logo and bring
at least 3 bottles of the same beer.  

Prizes to the winners of these contest categories-
1,  The item /beer from the brewery that is the
greatest distance from The Gaslight.
     2.  Most clothing items from a single brewery with a      
matching beer for each different item.
   3. Highest ABV of beer that matches your clothing item.
 4.  Lowest ABV of beer that matches your clothing item.
 5.  Beer and clothing item from the oldest brewery.
 6.  Beer and clothing item from the newest brewery.
Note: To win a prize and avoid binding arbitration you must
bring proof of how your entry meets category criteria.

Note: Clothing” items include hats, belts, earrings, socks, shoes,
etc. If it is wearable it qualifies. NO undergarments of any kind

General Contest Rules-
1.Coors, A-B, Miller items/beer NOT allowed.

2. Only one beer per brewery item.  For example, you cannot
bring three different beers from Sam Adams if you are only
wearing a Sam Adams t-shirt (that would only count as 1 beer).

3. You can bring multiple beers from the same brewery as long
as each article of clothing specifically matches the beer.  For
example you can match your Sam Adams IPA Jacket with  that
beer, a Sam Adams Cherry Wheat T-shirt with that beer, a
Brooklyn Stout sweater with that beer, etc.

This could very well prove to be the most different and
fun DB15 meeting ever - don't miss it!
