Queso Diego April Grilled Cheese Meeting Announcement

Dear Queso Diegans,

Just a reminder that one of our most popular meetings of the year is coming up next Tuesday 4/19 – the Grilled Cheese meeting! Also a note about an upcoming event that might be of interest.

We will meet as usual at Alesmith Brewery, 9990 Alesmith Ct. off of Miramar Road. 6:30 p.m. Other than a few announcements we will jump right in to grilling sandwiches.

We ask that you bring ingredients and prep/cooking supplies to cook 2-4+ sandwiches. Cooks will be rotating, so that once you’ve finished grilling, please allow someone else to use your cooking space.

Cook 2-4 sandwiches and cut into 6+ pieces each, depending on the size/structure – You won’t be slaving over the stove all night, so don’t be afraid to jump in! The smaller you can cut them, the more people will be able to sample.

Please prep beforehand as much as possible (chopping, mixing, marinating) and bring extra – caramelized onions, roasted peppers, sliced cheeses, meats, sliced fruits/veggies, spices, etc.

Propane / butane cooking apparatus are required, as we do not have electrical outlets available. We need as many propane/butane stoves/grills as possible. We will have some tables for serving and other snacks, but you should plan on trying to bring your own table for prep. If you have a portable table, please bring it – we need as many surfaces as we can!

If you don’t plan to cook, please bring food to share or ingredients for the cooks to use. Non-members and Guests are allowed. We ask that non-members and guests consider joining. It’s only $20/year.

As a reminder, please bring a chair and we are welcome to bring homemade alcoholic beverages, nothing commercial per Alesmith’s license.

Also, the Liquid City cheese event is happening on Sunday, May 1. Queso Diegans are invited to the Industry Night at Alesmith on Saturday night, April 30. Please see Curt’s previous email for more information.

Queso Diego November Meeting Announcement

“Holiday Cheese Display”

Tuesday, November 16, at 6:30 PM

The Barrel Room
AleSmith Brewing Co.
9990 AleSmith Court
San Diego, CA 92126

Greetings Queso Diego,

As usual we’ll start off at 6:30 with our potluck munchies.

The general meeting will start at 7:00 and we’ll get together and share ideas for centerpieces, displays and presentations made primarily from cheese. You’re encouraged to be creative and make a display using any cheese as well as charcuterie and accompaniments.

We’d love to have you share your ideas for the holidays.

We also have our annual elections this month. The board will present a slate of officers for discussion and approval. We look forward to having everyone join us.

Remember to bring a chair and a coat. It’s getting a little cooler.

Regarding the noise:
I’m sure everyone is aware that the back room can be a bit noisy. They have so much beer to can that they’ve been running 24/7. Peter is aware of the noise.
They are in the process of getting a faster canning line that will be installed a little further away. This should hopefully be done within the next couple of months.
Thanks for putting up with this but it will get better.
