Queso Diego April Meeting Announcement

April is Grilled Cheese Month and we’ll be celebrating with our annual Grilled Cheese Meeting on April 16! You won’t want to miss this delicious event!

Annual Grilled Cheese Meeting
Tuesday, April 16 @ 6:30PM
AleSmith Brewery
9990 AleSmith Court
San Diego, CA 92126

We will be in the barrel room area that can be accessed by going down the hallway to the left of the main bar in the tasting room. We have been in this space for the last couple meetings, but were in a different location prior to that.

Please adhere to the following guidelines to accommodate our new space:

Propane / butane cooking apparatus are required, as we do not have electrical outlets available.
We need as many propane/butane stoves/grills as possible, please indicate in the RSVP if you can bring yours (with fuel included)

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!

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.

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

Please RSVP below to let us know the food and supplies you can bring. We are permitted to bring homemade alcoholic beverages, but AleSmith’s license does not permit outside commercial alcohol.

Please RSVP using this form as soon as possible so that we can get an accurate head count and plan logistics.
