Looking forward to April we are looking for members who are interested in attending or already planning to attend the Southern California Homebrewers Festival. The festival is being held April 29 & 30 2022 at Vail Lake KOA Camping Resort near Temecula. More details will be coming soon but we need to get an idea of how many campsites we need to reserve. If you are planning on attending and would like to contribute beer to pour at the festival or would like to help pour beer or would like to camp on site, please fill out the form here, https://forms.gle/BU6ScJgJHnjF6xHA6. If you are not attending but would like to contribute beer to have us pour you can also fill out the form and we’ll follow up with you directly.

Brave Noise Pale Ale
“Where do you stand?”
The hundreds of stories that followed Brienne Allan's question "Have you ever experienced sexism in the beer industry?" shortly after she shared her own experience was nothing less than traumatic.
In the wake of it all it has shed light on a systemic issue of discrimination and harassment in the work place that the beer industry is not immune too.
In this regards the Socal Cervecero family would like to ask breweries and industry leaders to "Get your shit together!"
SCC prides ourselves on being a safe space and enviroment for our members, we now ask everyone to do the same and help make a difference.
For more info on how you can join the collaboration please visit BraveNoiseBeer.com

COLDXELA FEST AWARDED
Beer of the month
“Dunkel” is a Munich style dark lager brewed by Enegren Brewing Company located in Moorpark, CA. I was eager to try it since, well, Enegren is easily a favorite for any German style lagers in SoCal, but also because I hadn’t had much of this kind of lager. It was a hit for me at first sip. The malt is immediately at the forefront with pronounced bread and biscuit notes. Combined with a dry, crispy finish and coming in at 5.5%, it was hard not to just chug this one. Very nice head retention, And the clarity !! There is nothing aggressive about it and I think that is what is the most appealing part for my taste. This beer represents all of my favorite beer characteristics in one so I’ll definitely be back for more, hopefully before the season of dark lagers passes. Cheers!”
