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 $65 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 which is
now $10 per person.
Ask any Cask Commissioner
for the full details at the next meeting.

Next Meeting July 12
As the days get longer and hotter it's time to enjoy
"summer beers" - lighter, more refreshing, but no
less flavorful. From hoppy pale ales to crisp pilsners to fruit
infused refreshers, these thirst-quenchers are perfect for
raising a toast to this sometimes underrated beer season.
While many styles fit nicely into the summer beer category,
there's no single one that ties them all together. Because of
that every beer presented for your tasting at our July 12
meeting will have "summer" written on the bottle or can.
That will be our main criteria. As such, it will be hard to
know quite what to expect when we pop the cap other than
to say it's surely going to be a unique adventure in beer fun!
And don't expect the usual suspects of summer beers.
Two bold cask commissioners have agreed to undertake a
mission to search the hitherlands for as many beers as
possible that are not readily available in New Jersey.
Jeff Levine is journeying to the back streets of Chicago and
Dan Hodge is heading to the uncharted areas of North
Carolina to bring back beer expressly for this meeting!
. Best wishes to these two intrepid beer hunters. May their
quest on our behalf be well rewarded!
Since Jeff and Dan will not return until the day before
our meeting it's impossible to list what treasures they may
have found. Be assured however that the beers they bring
might make for the greatest July meeting in club history!
Don't miss it - 4 PM, at the Gaslight, July 12.
