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.

February's Back to Back Beer Events Score

Our regular meeting on Feb. 21 welcomed Roxann Diaz from
Boston Beer.   Roxann led members on a tutored tasting of
many of the great Sam Adams brews along with presenting  
each member with an official Sam Adams bottle opener key
chain and the renoun
Sam Adams Ultimate Beer Glass

As the meeting ended the club joined Roxann in a toast to
celebrate the 25th anniversary of the founding of Boston Beer
by Jim Koch, widely recognized as the man most responsible
for putting craft beer into the mainstream.  Many thanks to
Roxann and Boston Beer for an outstanding presentation!

On Feb. 20 Gaslight's award winning brewer D.J. Soboti  
welcomed club members to join him in brewing the
Eliminator, a  honey double Mai-Bock.  All those attending
participated in every phase of the brewing process and can
now say they were  part of the Gaslight "brewing team".
Special thanks on behalf of the entire Draught Board 15 to
D.J. for running this unique and memorable event.
