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

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.

February Meeting Notes
by Dan Hodge
Cask Commissioner's verified that members would be
assessed $125 for dues and the TAP trip. Non-members
would be charged $110 for the TAP trip only. Meeting
charge for non-members would be $10 except for "special"
meetings such as the IPA bracket meeting, which would
be $15. This is because the "special" meetings' beer costs
are exceedingly higher than most meetings.
No meeting in April due to the NY Tap trip.
May's meeting will be our first ever Malt Sensory tutorial.
Regular meeting began at 4:10 pm
Members present were: Dan Hodge, Dan Soboti, DJ Soboti,
Jeff Levine, Vince Capano, Sean Guernaccia, Glenn De
Luca, Livingston Hinckley, Tom Nooney, Ralph Ingle, Troy
Titus, and Mark Ferguson. No non-members were present.
The meeting was a homebrew competition of the
doppelbock style, with each entrant complying to the usual
DB15 rules: ingredients supplied by U-brrew with no
instructions. Paulaner Slavator, the original brewer of this
style was used as the benchmark against which the
competitors were to be judged on a 1 to ten scale.
1. First prize Livingston Hinckley 91 points beer #1
2. Second prize vince Capano 85 points beer #2
3. Third prize (tie) Sean Guarnaccio
and Paulaner 83 points beer # 3 &7
5, Fifth prize Dan Hodge 77 points beer #2
6. Sixth prize Tony Soboti 76 points beer #3
7. Seventh prize Jeff Levine 71 points beer #6
