Heck yeah! If your in Texas or even close to the state you won’t want to miss this one. Texas is having their official annual meet up this year at CATS Fest V in Bulvetde, TX (that’s basically San Antonio). Will be kicking things off Friday May 26th in the evening at the CATS pre-party and of course we’ll really be getting things going on Saturday May 27th at the event.
As usual the La Quinta is home base for everything and where the majority of us will be staying. Information on tickets and booking a hotel are available at the CATS Fest website: Catsfestival.com
For specific information contact your chapter officers and they will give you all the details on when and where we will all be meeting. Hope to see a ton of us out there this year!
Mark your calendars everybody because it’s almost that time of year again. The time for the DR crawfish boil. This year its happening on April 29th at DR HQ S&M Smoke Shop in Fort Pierce. It starts at 5:00 and goes until we feel like stopping. As usual we’ll be supplying the food you bring the booze!
This year we are happy to have Moya Ruiz to be the cigar sponsor for this event and Nelson himself just might be stopping by to party with us. As always there will be great cigar giveaways, raffles and discounts on products. Last year was a great event and we are hoping to make this event even better. Look forward to seeing you all there again.
As always there is a ton of space at Steve and Missy’s and the humidor is always stocked for us!
Here’s the address and phone number for the event:
1001 S US Highway 1
Fort Pierce, FL — 34950
Debuting back in 1988 that sexy goose of a logo made its way to its home town of Chicago bringing more then just an idea. Inspired by the European craft market john hall, C.E.O of Goose Island felt Americans deserved at least a little of what Europe had to offer.
John hall opened a small brewery and began to create magic, allowing his consumers to get a behind the scenes look of every step in the process. The fascination of brewing a craft beer like no other was propelled by the demand of beer loving pallets. 1995 was the year john pretty much out grew his humble facility and decided a larger brewery was the next move. That same year john opened a bottling plant and by 1999 a brewpub was already established.
The Goose Island IPA smells of lemonade and orange peels a bold citrus aroma with color resembling the golden gates of heaven what more could you ask from a proper brewed IPA? It’s one of those “grab a couple with some buds at a BBQ” beer. Carbonation is on the medium, almost light side but then again we’re talking about an IPA so its deﬁnitely hop driven with a bitter after taste. For those of you who’ve never given the goose a try I’d recommend requesting it at your local bar because something about this brew on draft takes it to a whole different level.
