2013 Quaff Padres Tailgate – 15th Annual

Hello fellow Quaffers!
It’s that time of year again, when hope springs eternal and we can envision the Padres winning the National League West Pennant!!! That means it’s time once again to plan for one of Quaff’s fun events of the year – namely, the Quaff Padres Tailgate Party and Baseball Game. We’ll start selling tickets to our 2013 Quaff Padres Tailgate game (15th annual) at the May General Quaff meeting (5/28). While the ticket price for our group tickets is slightly higher this year at $29.50, the regular price went up by even more making this an even better deal than last year! Some come down and hang out at the Qualcomm parking lot (free parking) for some great beer & food before we take the trolley to go watch the Padres beat up on the San Francisco Giants (again!). The details for this year’s event are below.

The Game
Date: Saturday, July 13, 2012
Time: 7:10 p.m.
Opponent: San Francisco Giants
Seats: 50 Field Level Reserved Tickets ­ Left Field (We switched sides so as not to be looking into the setting sun)
Section 122, Rows 16, 17 & 18
Price: $29.50 each; face value is $45.50

The Tailgate:
Location: Qualcomm Stadium, Section J2 – usual spot
Tailgate times: 2:00 to 6:00 p.m.
Trolley to Petco Park: ~ $5.00 round trip
Travel time by trolley each way: 30 to 45 minutes

The Food:
Quaff will be providing bratwurst, hot dogs, chips and condiments. Members should bring their favorite potluck salad, side dish or dessert to share.

The Beer:
Members please bring some homebrew and/or some other special craft or microbrew bottled beer to share as well.

Game Pool: We’ll again have a pool with cash awards for the correct scores after the 3rd & 6th innings, plus final score. We’ve purchased 40 tickets again this year. As always, first come, first served, but no reservations! So bring cash or check (made out to Quaff Treasurer Chuck West) and catch me before or after the Quaff meeting.

President’s Message

Summer is nearly here and that means there are a lot of events coming up. The SD County Fair, Brewer’s Swap meet, NHC, QuAFF/ Padres tailgate and all the other countless events that will fill up our summertime fun time.

Last month we had Rob Keller and his short talk “Beer throughout History”. We also had The DD Van in attendance giving us yet another option to safely get around town to sample all of the new and existing breweries in a safe manner. Homebrews were brought by Wes McCaan, Eric Durose, Adrian Avgerinos, Brian Trout, and Ross Wilderman. Thanks again for sharing your tasty creations.

Thanks to everybody in the club for helping out at the San Diego History Center’s Bottled and Kegged exhibit. I also saw a lot of QuAFF’ers at the North Park Craft Beer Block volunteering and giving up their Saturday to promote great beer to the attendees at this neighborhood event. Your participation is greatly appreciated.

This month our meeting topic will be European lagers presented by Wes McCaan.

That’s it for now and look forward to seeing everyone at the next meeting or at any of the great events nearing on the calendar.
