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.

|March Madness - IPAs
It's time for our biggest and most popular meeting of the
year as over 32 (yes, over 32) IPAs face off in a blind taste
test using the NCAA basketball tournament bracket format.
The Final Four winners from last year's event will be back
along with all new IPAs that have never before been in our
tournament including many not available in New Jersey!
Beers will be seeded based on their average rating from Rate
Beer, Beer Advocate, and other media. A strenuous effort
has been made to get the very best available American
IPAs from each region of the nation.
Everyone present will vote in our blind tasting showdown.
As an added bonus all leftover beer will be raffled off
in our legendary "Selection Countdown."
All are welcome so bring a friend. Members, as always, are
free but due to the high cost of securing the many beers for
the event the guest fee for this meeting only will be $20.
If you like IPAs this is a meeting you cannot miss.
Over thirty-two different IPAs in a classic showdown to find
out which is best and you're the judge!
Sunday, March 12 at 4 PM at the Gaslight

India Pale Ale
Despite its name, the hoppy ale really is British in origin.
Beyond that, its history gets a bit murky. Some say brewers
needed a higher alcohol brew to withstand the sea journey
from England south and east to India. Others say it filled a
requisite need among early imports as British colonialism
took root in India. Many versions of this style's origins
exist; it seems for each one there is another story that
debunks the first. Whatever the history it is without
question the single most popular craft beer style in the USA.
"The American IPA is a different soul from the reincarnated
IPA style. More flavorful than the withering English IPA,
color can range from very pale golden to reddish amber.
Hops are typically American with a big herbal and / or citric
character, bitterness is high as well. Moderate to medium
bodied with a balancing malt backbone."
