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.

|Oct. 8 Meeting
Here's your chance to show off some of those special
bottles you've been waiting to share with people who truly
appreciate craft beer. Every one attending the meeting on
Sunday, Oct. 8, at 4 PM, should bring at least one large
bottle (750ml or a 22 oz.) or two/three 12 oz. bottles.
Any style from any brewery will be fine as will home
brews. Come prepared with some information about the
brewery and the beer to present to the group. We'll also
discuss /evaluate each one and select the best of the day.
Bottle Share Etiquette
from Beer & Brewing Magazine
1. Bring Enough for Everyone
It’s your responsibility to make sure that each attendee
who wants to taste your beer gets a fair shot.
2. Take Great Beer.
Take a great bottle of beer to share. This is not the time to
unload the three leftover beers you bought last year.
3. Talk About The Beer
Some bottle shares actually ban smart phones so that people
talk about the beer instead of first checking in on Untappd.
There's plenty of time for that after discussing the beer.
4. Don’t be Overly Negative
Don’t declare a beer infected, inferior, or downright nasty
until after the person who brought the beer has had a
chance to weigh in. Then give your opinion—tactfully.
6. Don’t over-praise your own bottle.
Let other people recognize that killer bottle that you brought.
7. Don’t be too late.
Being able to talk about the full range of beers at a
bottle share is part of the fun.
Home Brew Competition.
We are in the planning stages for our next home brew
contest. If you have a suggestion for which beer style we
should use tell Dan at the next meeting or send it HERE.
If you have this beer bring it to the bottle share!
Disclaimer: The above was used to take up space so the
column did not have to be reformatted. It is a real beer.
Members - don't forget to pick up you're complimentary
DB15 mug. Additional glasses also available
for purchase. Get another before the supply runs out.
