I'm pretty new to the homebrewing scene, and I'd heard that the Maltose Falcons are the oldest brewing club in the US, from San Francisco. So I looked them up, and it appears that they're a 100% LA organization now. How did that come about? Is there a Dashiell Hammett connection there too?

I'm honestly curious, and don't mean (or desire) to start a NorCal / SoCal thing, so just the facts, please!

As a rock climber, a dirtbag is someone who's dedicated his/her life to living pure & free & climbing all the time -- a somewhat enviable life for many who feel chained to their desks.

I'm guessing you mean something else!

Well then I guess I would call them 'hop socks'

Me personally, I'm chained to a desk with my mediocre homebrew. Brew clubs in general, and especially the long-lived, legendary clubs, are where it's at.

As far as Dashiells go, I'm partial to Dashiell Hedayat.
