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 $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

Next Meeting - November 8, at the Gaslight, 3 PM
Home Brew Showdown

It's finally here at our November 8th meeting-
the DB15's home brew showdown!
Everyone attending will get the opportunity to vote for their
favorite Oktoberfest beers as produced by some of the best
home brewers in the state.  Each brewer has used the same
ingredients supplied by U-Brew (at the Gaslight) so this truly
is a contest of the brewer's talents.

Brewers are reminded to drop off 3 bottles at the Gaslight
several days prior to the meeting.  There is no fee to enter.  
It's still not to late to start brewing for the event - call Dan at
the Gaslight for all the needed information.

Our home brew showdown meetings are always some of the
most popular of the year so don't miss it!  Be there for all the
fun on November 8, Sunday, 3 PM, only at the Gaslight.


Beer Wars Dazzles at the October Meeting

Directly from theaters, the feature length film, Beer Wars, was
shown at the last meeting.  The film traces the battle between
macro and craft brewers and supplied information not
generally known to the public.  The film will soon be available
on Amazon.com for those wanting their own copy.  The
meeting included a tasting of a variety of Sam Adams brews,
one of the featured breweries in the film.
The Gaslight
Gaslight Beers
Run, don't walk, to the Gaslight to enjoy the limited release of
the incredible Big Dog Organic Pumpkin Ale, and "777" - the
Gaslight's tribute to Belgium.  At  9.4% ABV it's one tasty
powerhouse.  Also on tap are the award winning Pinhead Pils
and Gaslight 's new Belgo Pale (6.4%).   

Be sure to check the chalkboard for all the great
Gaslight beers and unique guest taps.
