February's Meeting I yr. Anniversary at Babe's

Greetings from your V.P. Albert,

Well kudos to all who attended our first anniversary as a Homebrew Club. We've only just begun. Here's the sorry lot of us minus myself since I'm snapping the shots. We met at Babe's at the The River in Rancho Mirage. See we're not that scary.

The Culprit: Drunkin' Monk, a Belgian Trippel
.......a little over 7%ABV......typical session beer. Not!

Micah had a trippel. Well, someone has to set the example.

We all followed suit.
Damn that peer pressure!

Damn that beer pressure!
Tom asked me to take a picture of his good side.

Damn those juicy ribs!

See it wasn't just a sausage fest. Just kidding. Our newest member Chris Anderson's family were also here to celebrate our 1 year anniversary. She's the one who ate the entire rack of Bar-B-Que ribs. It was like watching piranha.

My First Southern California Homebrew Festival

Hello All From
Since we're all preparing for the 2008 SCHF, I thought I'd share my pictorial documentary of my first experiences at the 2004 and 2006 festivals. I missed 2005's event.

The Inland Empire Brewers have always been a great bunch.

They let me crash with them.

What is this? No Country for Old Men?

...and that other guy...sorry other guy.

No it wasn't just a sausage fest, see there were some babes.

Beer Wenches!

HEY! What's going on over there?

Hey, baby! How 'bout a shot?


Well that's what I sorta remember.
I can't wait for this years festival.

For more information about the fest:

Our President, Micah made a slide show of last years festival and the CV Homebrewers' Debut.

Even the most pissy of old men happened to muster a smile. That tells you it was good.
