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.

Great Beers At the Gaslight

Hurry down to the pub for DJ's "experimental"
BA Massive, an assertive hop brew that has quickly become a
runaway favorite.  This one won't last long so get there fast.  
And when you're there have a glass of the award winning
Eliminator, a honey double maibock that is in a class by itself.  

Be sure to out the chalkboard for all of the Gaslight's
outstanding beers and you'll see why Gaslight has the best  beer
and widest selection of any brewpub in the state!

Next Regular Meeting- 3 PM, Sunday, April 17, 2009
TAP- NY Festival Big Hit

Although there was no regular monthly meeting in April, over 25
club members joined other friends of Gaslight for the annual bus
trip to the East Coast's premier beer festival, TAP-NY.  The 2
1/2 hour ride passed quickly thanks to a Three Stooges Film
festival and two great Gaslight kegs on board.

The festival itself was all a beer lover could ever want- nearly 40
breweries and over 125 beers to sample, most of which are not
available in New Jersey.  No lines at pouring station and excellent
food were the final parts of a truly memorable experience.
Thanks go out to DJ and Dan Soboti for organizing the entire
trip. And special kudos to Dan Hodge for tasting 82 different
beers - a new club record!

Mother's Day Moves Meeting

The DB15 regularly meets on the second Sunday of the
month.  However since that date in May is Mother's Day, the
meeting will be moved back a week to May 17.


May 17th Meeting - Brooklyn Beers

A representative from Brooklyn Brewery is scheduled to lead
us in a tutored tasting of beers from this great brewery.  Don't
miss what promises to be an informative and beer filled look
into the making of Brooklyn's world class portfolio.  

Mark your calender for May 17, Sunday,
3 PM at the Gaslight.
