Dedicated to the advancement of beer enjoyment
Greetings beer fans!
Our very first attempt at this new thing dubbed “Erie Beer Society” took place on December 17, 2009 at
The Sandbar on West 8th Street. If I recall, about 35 people showed up, which far exceeded the whopping 13 that RSVP’d. We knew we were on to something the next month when we literally packed U Pick 6 on upper Peach Street.
Erie Beer Society has featured 54 meetings in total (counting this month’s at Calamari’s) and a handful of other events taking place at Seawolves games, Otters games and even some American Craft Beer Week sampling events. As of today, there are 2,343 “beerthusiasts” signed up on eriebeersociety.com, a testament to the popularity of craft beer in this region.
So now what?
Well, we need a little bit of your help. Don’t worry; it’s not much at all. A membership fee will be $12.00 per year, that’s only $1.00 per month so you can keep coming to each meeting and trying the different beers each time. $12.00 a year. That’s it.
June’s meeting will be like it’s been for the past 4+ years, but starting with July’s meeting at a location TBD, we’d like your help to keep trying new and different beers. More information on signing up will be available soon!
May the beer be with you,
