OK OK OK...We got you an event at HESS BREWING

Hey Clubbers!

I was getting TONS of requests for an event at Hess Brewing.  We finally got you one set up there.  This time around though, it will be a little different.  Instead of doing our tradition tour and tasting, this event will give a little more freedom.  

Barry, our good friend, owner at Local Habit and part owner at Hess, will be giving us $1 off all pints and $1 off all flights.  In addition (and no extra cost), there will be a tour of the brewery available for those who want to check out how Hess comes to make the delicious liquid magic that everyone is ranting and raving about. 

So there are three options:

- You can come for the beer!

- You can come for a tour!

- Or you can come for both!

For those of you who don't know much about Hess...you are really missing out.  Hess is probably one of the more (if not most) popular up and coming breweries on the market.  I don't think I have heard a single negative comment about them in any way.  What started out as a brewery in an over sized garage quickly grew into two locations and tons of demand.  Check out their website below:

For those who are interested in the tour as well as the beer, the tour will start at 730.  

Cheers!

Karl

      The More Kevin's, the Better the Party! Just remember, you need to match up the right name with the right Face when you Vote for San Diego City Mayor! It was Kevin (I only play a Politician on TV) SWANSON as one of the 6 (yes - 6 out of 44 people at the Party were named Kevin

    Great event with great people at a Great Location!
    Karl - thank you for organizing this and arranging with Mike Hess and the other Owner of Mike Hess Brewing for the drink specials and the great food prices. We had the Urban BBQ Chicken Pizza - and there was plenty to go around.
    Great to meet 5 other Kevin "look alike" contestants!
    I was the one wearing the Panama Hat or Fedora - and the three name tags stating that I was the real Kevin Swanson with Syntropic Systems.
    That is Kevin Arthur Swanson - Not a Politician, seeking your vote of confidence and help in building "San Diego - Where Dreams Become Reality"
    Please tell your friends to look at my LinkedIn profile http://www.LinkedIn.com\syntrop...­ and spread the word about me.
    Your Vote can count for something. I am asking for a job for the next 3 years that I know will not be easy. However with your help, we can build a better future together.
    Best wishes,
    Kevin S for Swanson

    Is it OK for me, as someone collecting signatures to qualify for the Ballot position of San Diego Mayor, to attend? Or do I have to wait until I lose the election by default of NOT BEING A CAREER POLITICIAN with Name Recognition?
    I do not have a campaign website up yet - as I am not really "in the Race" until I collect 200 valid signatures and submit them with $500.
    My name is KEVIN ARTHUR SWANSON, and I want to be Mayor of "San Diego - Where Dreams Become Reality"
    it is NOT
    Kevin Faulconer, who wants to be Mayor of Scam Diego, America's Finest City.

    Can't do Wednesdays... but I'd definitely go if I could! I enjoyed the old Hess location, and I'm excited about the new one!

    Wednesday is Urbn Pizza Night." Hess is able to take orders for Urbn craft pizzas and have them delivered to the tasting room. You get to pay on one check and the prices are the same as the Urbn menu.

    Hey Karl, thanks! I was only there once, and it was hotter than hell inside. Don't think owners thought about the heat factor in Hillcrest. It was so hot I drank my beer (which was wonderful) and left! So I'm giving you your negative comment! I think that many of these places focus on their beer (probably good thing!) and not the comfort issue which restaurants deal with in their planning!

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
