Guests are always welcome to attend meetings, but we encourage regular attendees to become members by paying dues. Queso Diego dues are $20 per year for individuals or $30 per household. These dues help us pay for meeting supplies and commercial examples, as well as supplies for pairings. In addition to the benefits at meetings, we have negotiated discounts for members at local businesses.
The following discounts are currently available to paid members with a valid membership card:
- AleSmith – 10% discount
- Bice Ristorante – 15% discount during happy hour (food only), 10% discount all other times
- Bottles & Wood – 10% discount
- Brothers Provisions – 10% discount
- The Cheese Store of San Diego – 10% discount
- Curds and Wine – 10% discount
- Smallgoods – 10% discount

The officers are always working to secure additional member discounts. If you have suggestions for businesses to contact or represent a business that would like to offer a discount, please contact the officers.
