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 $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.

Home Brew Shown Down Winners

The November meeting featured a battle of some of the best
home brewers in the state striving for gold, silver, and bronze
medals in the Oktoberfest category.  Each brewer used the
same ingredients making this a true test of the brewer's skill.

Everyone attending the meeting was able to sample and rate
each of the entries.  When the points were totaled the results
proved to be the closest in the history of the DB15 Challenge.

The gold medal was won by
Chris Johnson, silver was
awarded to
Pat Ford, and the bronze went to Dan Hodge.

Congratulations to these great home brewers!
