Queso Diego October Meeting Announcement

October is American Cheese Month and we thought it would be fun to present a selection of
award winning cheeses from Central Coast Creamery in Paso Robles. Cheeesemaker
Reggie Jones took home four first place ribbons at this year’s American Cheese Conference,
and Jenny Eastwood from Smallgoods will present those winners, and fill you in on the state
of American Cheese. We are also trying to arrange a surprise guest – so stand by and make
sure to come celebrate American Cheese Month at our meeting on October 16th!

AleSmith Brewery

We have been temporarily moved into a production area of the brewery until their conference meeting room is completed. It is an area that may be cooler than our previous location, so plan on layered clothing or a light outerwear jacket.
Enter through the Tasting Room (our old side door entrance is gone), go near the Gwynn Museum and Barrel Speakeasy: look for the double doors and follow the Queso Diego signs.
Please bring a chair to sit on and your own tasting glass for sharing libations. Per the new law we can share our homebrew beer, wine, cider and mead; but we cannot bring in other commercial libations to the meeting. However, we will have full access to the Tasting Room to replenish our beers during the meeting.

Meetings are free, but we highly encourage bringing something tasty to share (including homemade and store-bought cheeses), and joining as a member for only $20/year.

Please RSVP using this form as soon as possible so that we can get an accurate head count: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeiuugkb5wmiueha8nXsJ1oUOS9P-qCPoFqxl8DrBm_XIH7Qw/viewform
