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 $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.

Retro - Retro

It's a double dose of retro at our January 17 meeting, 3 PM
at the Gaslight.  Enjoy a sampling of some of the most famous
retro beers still being produced.  From Schlitz to Rhinegold to
Schaffer we'll have quite a few to remind you that the good
old days of beer drinking weren't that good after all.  
In addition we'll be showing on the Gaslight big screen a
collection of beer commercials from the early days of
television.  It's a super bowl of beer nostalgia!

3 PM, Sunday, Feb. 17 at the Gaslight.

Boston Beer Company at Feb. 21 Meeting

Jim Koch founded The Boston Beer Company in 1984
because he "believed that Americans deserved better beer".
Today, the company has 350 employees who produce the
wide range of  Samuel Adams® beers.  

In 1985 at the Great American Beer Festival Samuel Adams
Boston Lager® was voted the "Best Beer In America".  
Today the many different brews in the Samuel Adams line
can  proudly boast of gold medals from competitions
around the world.

The DB15 is happy to announce that a representative of
Boston Beer (could it be Jim?) will make a presentation about
the company and lead us in a tutored tasting of many of the
great Samuel Adams brews.  

Don't miss what promises to be a truly great meeting!!

The Gaslight
Gaslight Beers
If you like hops you have to try the BA Massive, an assertive,
hop heavy IPA that's an award winner.  Also try a pint of the
11 Piper, a tasty scotch ale not for the faint of heart.
There's still a bit of the powerful Satan Claws left so get it before
it done for the year.  Be sure to also enjoy the outstanding
Bison Brown and Warrior ESB.

Check the chalkboard for all the great
Gaslight beers and unique guest taps.
Plan ahead - next month's meeting will be
on Feb. 21 Sunday,at the Gaslight, 3 PM
