Hi all. I'll throw my hat in the SoCal ring.

I have brewed off and on over the years, but finally am fully embracing my love for it. This year I switched to all grain as well as 10 gallon batches.

Anyhow, would be great to meet up.

Cheers!

Are you referring to when I said I got a discount? It is from working in the service industry. Unfortunately I haven't joined any clubs yet, but I am planning on doing it soon.

That was what I was referring too.

I think we could let this plan develop forever or plan something. I live in Vista and would gladly host a gathering up here or if that isn't convenient we could meet somewhere more central.

I'm headed to the Tap Room Anniversary Party tomorrow in PB. Anybody else going?

I would go but I work weekend evenings, that is why I am hesitant to speak up on setting up a meeting. If someone decides to go ahead and get the ball rolling I will do my best to be there, I could even pick up some folks since I drive an SUV.

Ok. I'll take the lead. We'll tackle one issue at a time. Location first. I have seen responses from all over the county. So we can either do a rotation of volunteer hosts, or meet at one semi central location that makes sense. I think a place like the Tap Room in PB, or urbn in North Park would serve us well. A place with plenty on tap. In fact Tap Room tapped a Pliny the Younger yesterday.

So my vote is to have a single location. If we do it regularly we are likely to get to know them, and them us. That usually leads to deals and inside info on upcoming taps.

I'm in Fontana I'd love to get together. I would have too save my pennies since we started a new budget in the household. Don't mind San Diego north county would be easier for me. But I have never been to many other bars down south.

I second the motion to decide on a central location. Obriens is another option as well. As for time: I vote 3rd sat of the month. Any other opinions?

Also we should bring a Homebrew or two to trade?

3rd Saturday of the month would be great except I'm out of town on that weekend this month. So selfishly I nominate the second Saturday of every month since i will be available then.

I think that Tap Room or O'Briens are great ideas the only issue I see is sometimes those sort of places aren't really all that open to us bringing homebrew in.
