September 15 Meeting - 4 PM - at the Gaslight
Special Guest Speaker
Mr. Billy Morrissey  
of Belukus Marketing -Exclusive Beer Club Appearance!


In the early 90's, three partners had a vision to bring some of
the finest beers and ales to the United States. To do that they
formed Belukus Marketing. The unique name of the company,  
is an acronym for Belgium, United Kingdom, and the United
States. Today the company is widely considered as having
one of the best beer portfolios in the industry.  After tasting
several of their offerings at this meeting you'll surely agree.

Belkus imports from world famous breweries such as
Malheur, Lefebvre, Wells & Young's Belhaven, Bitburger,
Kostritzer, Licher, and others.

Stone Tap Takeover - Sept. 19  

It's the biggest tap takeover in Gaslight history as Stone, one of
the world's top ten rated breweries, steps in with an incredible
collection of beers including some you'd be hard pressed to
find even at their headquarters in Escondido, California.

Due to the limited nature of the beers and the expected
demand the Gaslight will begin pouring at 11:30 AM
and continue tapping special beers throughout the
day including a totally unique cask!!

The
ONE TIME ONLY cask has been especially made
for the event.  It has been produced "under the brewers
discretion" which means its contents will only be known
once it actually arrives at the Gaslight.
Here are just some of bottles and draughts we will have
(not to mention a surprise or two!!)
Draught:
Levitation
VE (Vertical Epic) - 9-9-9
VE 10-10-10

ever seen in the state!  Don't miss this event.

UPCOMING MEETINGS

The October meeting will be a tasting of Oktoberfest beers
from around the world. No, not the usual suspects. We're
working on bringing in some rare and hard to find gems.

The November meeting will be our Home Brew Showdown as
all brewers are asked to make a session IPA (4.5% or less).  
See Dan Soboti (U-Brew) for all the rules.

December is highlighted by the annual Gaslight Victorian
Dinner.  Information on the menu and club discount TBA.

All in all it's a great lineup of exciting events.  Don't miss a
meeting,.... and bring a friend.  New members always
welcome, after all, beer people are the best!
