February Meeting – Special Ticketed Anniversary Event

10 cheeses come in

In lieu of our February meeting, we will be celebrating our 13th anniversary as a club with our popular Bubbly and Cheese Pairing. This is a ticketed event for members and their guests and will not be held at AleSmith. If you are member and didn’t receive an invitation, or if you aren’t a member yet and would like to join as a member and attend the event, please reach out to the officers.

We’ll resume regular meetings at AleSmith in March.

Queso Diego January Meeting Announcement

Goat cheese with thymus

Join us at our January Meeting on Tuesday, January 16 at 6:30 at AleSmith (9990 AleSmith Ct, San Diego, Ca 92126)!

At this meeting, a cheesemaking presentation will be given by Larry. Also, we will specifically go over making Chevre (goat cheese), and we will be GIVING AWAY 20 free Chevre cheesemaking kits where you can get some goat milk and make your own goat cheese with basic equipment you probably already have in your kitchen. Hang on to those kits though, and make your goat cheese mid-March, as we will be having a club Goat Cheese tasting at the March Meeting! Any level of cheesemaker can do this. If you’re newer to cheesemaking, this is an easy (and good) one to do!

We’re meeting in the BARREL ROOM (walk in the main entrance, and walk between the main bar and gift shop straight back to the Barrel Room)
Upon arrival, please check-in at the check-in table
Please bring a lawn chair and jacket (we have no control over the temperature in the Barrel Room, and it is January)

Members are encouraged to bring homemade cheese, potluck item, beverages. If alcohol, only homemade alcohol is allowed (NO COMMERICAL ALCOHOL). Better yet, enjoy some of the tasty AleSmith beverages! If you do bring something for the club to enjoy, please provide everyone with a short description about it prior to the commencement of the potluck
Potluck/socializing beginning at 6:30, and the meeting at 7:00
