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

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.

November 10 Meeting
HOME BREW SHOWDOWN
It's finally here -one of our most popular meetings of the year-
the Home Brew Showdown! On Sunday, Nov. 10 at 4 PM we
will have nearly a dozen of New Jersey's finest home brewers
face off in a battle for the coveted DB15 Gold Brewing Medal.
The beers will all be Session IPAs. Each entry used the exact
same ingredients to make this truly a test the brewer's skill.
Everyone attending, brewers, non-brewers, members, and
guests, will be able to both sample and judge each of the
entries. Your vote counts - don't miss this meeting!
While there are no BJCP or GABF definitions of a "session
beer" most people see it as a beer that does not exceed
5% ABV. Beer Advocate defines it as "a beer with high
drinkability. The purpose of a session beer is to allow a
drinker to have multiple beers, within a reasonable time
period or session, without overwhelming the senses or
reaching inappropriate levels of intoxication."
It has been suggested that the term "session" referred to one of
the two allowable drinking periods in England that were
imposed by the government on shell production workers during
World War I. Typically the licensed sessions were 11am-3pm
and 7pm-11pm, and apparently continued up until the Liquor
Licensing Act 1988 was introduced. Workers would find a beer
that they could adequately quaff within these restrictive 4-hour
"sessions" and still be able to return to productive work.
