    After the smashing success of the Sonoma County Brewpub Run and the Rincon Brew Crew-se, Activities Director George Mahoney is putting together another spectacular trip to the GABF medal winning breweries of San Diego County. (Pics from our last trip and on a smaller bus!)

Opening their doors to us will be: Stone Brewing, at their new brewery; Ballast Point Brewing, at their new production brewery; Alesmith, celebrating their 10th Anniversary; and Pizza Port Brewing, Carlsbad, home of Jeff Bagby and the many Pizza Port beer festivals

    The bus will be departing from outside the Home Beer Wine Cheesemaking Shop in Woodland Hills at 8AM sharp! On the bus, we'll have raffles, prizes and of course.. beer! Remember, this trip, we're collecting money up front so that you don't have to worry about money the rest of the day. (Unless you're taking home beer and shirts, etc)

    The bus has been secured! The route has been planned! The party planning has commenced! People have been lining up beer samples for the bus! It's going to be a party people and you don't want to miss it! If you like good beer and live in Los Angeles, contact George Mahoney at publicity@maltosefalcons.com and get on the bus!

Note from the Organizers
We gladly invite everyone, of legal drinking age, to join us on our trip. Be you Falcon, PGer, Strander, Crowner, Lupulin or just plain Joe or Jane with a love of beer, come on down and join us for a few pints!

Please note that money for the bus trip will not be refunded after the RSVP date of March 25th. Before the RSVP due date, the organizers may grumble, but we understand and we'll shake the money loose from the treasurer's hands.

We also ask that you remember to take care and pace yourself while enjoying the fine beverages being offered to you. The brewers have worked hard to give you a fine product, give them and your fellow riders some fine treatment.

We'll try to keep an eye out for everybody, but please remember the buddy system and keep an eye out for your buddy! (See that grade school field trip to the science center was useful!)
