Be sure to join us for our July meeting. This month the topic is “Cheese of The British Isles” by Curt Wittenberg and a special guest Eric Meredith from Neal’s Yard in the UK. You won’t want to miss this meeting.
This month we’re going to try something fun. Everyone who RSVPs will be entered in a random drawing to win a prize. I don’t know what it is, but it won’t be a car or vacation. Probably some cheese or cheese related item, or a beer. Who knows?? Find out on the 16th.
As usual Social half-hour starts at 6:30 with the general meeting starting at 7. Please consider bringing a tasty treat to share.
Bring a friend and a chair. You’re probably safe without jackets this month.
See you on Tuesday.

Queso Diego March Meeting
Tuesday, March 21 @ 6:30PM
9990 AleSmith Court
San Diego, CA 92126
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.
