Back in the day…

Hello Quaffers,

With another fall campout in the books and SDBW just around the corner we still have so many great events in the first of November that choosing one or two will be quite difficult and just when you think the year can’t possibly yield any more momentous events we come to the QUAFF holiday party. Which, as we start to plan, will conjure thoughts of holiday ales and food a plenty dancing in your heads so that, yet again we can talk about what a great event this is for the next year to come until it is time to celebrate this annual holiday revelry once again.

Thanks to Chuck West for giving us a refresher/instructional presentation on holiday ales in September and to Chris Banker for showing the ease and depth that can be achieved through cider and some of his specialty and experimental processes in cider making at our October meeting. Thanks to Stan for bringing his apple pie cider to show the diversity that can be achieved by combining processes of grain brewing and cider making. Thanks to everyone who brought beer, cider and meads.

Next meeting we will have the Fall Strong Ale Challenge results announced. Thanks to all involved for all of their hard work to put on this competition all the while creating a new program to be used in future competitions. I hope that it pays off for QUAFF down the road with our competitions in years to come.

That’s it for now. I hope to see everyone out and about during beer week and remember to stay safe while checking out the many goings on around town. Cheers!

As we start to round out the year and enter the fall season we look towards QUAFF
Oktoberfest for our yearly celebration of all things beer, sharing beer, brewing beer for the
event, sharing homebrew as well as commercial beers from abroad and our local selections.
There will also be a raffle that will yield beer glasses, t-shirts, growler fills, beer ingredients, like I said, all things beer. And in the midst of this annual celebration, not to be forgotten, are our club members that made the many pounds of sausage for grilling at this annual revelry for all things fermented. Thanks to Mary Anne and Horace Bixby for hosting the sausage fest.

As things start to heat up in San Diego more and more beers will be needed to cool us down and wet our whistle. Lucky for us some of the new brewers coming on board are getting their product to the
bars and bottle shops around town to do just that. Societe has released their first draft offerings with the Apprentice IPA and the Harlot Belgian Strong, both quite enjoyable and very drinkable. Read More
