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.

June Meeting
So much for even a beer club's best made plans.  We
were forced to abruptly cancel our June meeting when
the special guest speaker unexpectedly pulled out only
days before the event.  We extend his apologies to all.
He has committed to appear in the fall.  
This one is well worth waiting for.

PLAN AHEAD -Rumor has it that we will have a very
unique tasting event in August. Stay tuned!

On May 22 the Gaslight  hosted a special launch of
their award winning  Abbey Normal for all club
members.  Glasses and growler fills were made
available at a discounted rate and as a  special treat,
the first glass of this great Belgian style beer was
for every DB15  member in good standing.  

If you missed the event you can still enjoy some the
