• Screen Print Merch for PRIDE

    Rebecca and Emma's House

    At QMB we print our own merch by hand! I'm going to burn some new screens for merch this week. We'll be printing shirts to be made available at our tent before Dyke March. Screen printing is fun! A couple people will be printing, one will be hanging wet shirts, and another will be using an iron to set ink. WEAR CLOTHES THAT PAINT CAN GET ON. The ink is easy to wash out when wet, but still. To find us: Go through the gate on the side, up the stairs to your left, and knock on the back door of the house. I will a sign on the front door explaining this. Knocks on the front door are hard to hear.

  • Dyke March in Dolores Park

    Mission Dolores Park

    Each year we gather under our tent(s) and drink in merriment while surrounded by the queers. We'll have kegs of our beer and great company... and new merch! This year we are planning to have a "water bar" with fruit-infused still and sparkling waters in kegs. Setting up and breaking down are the big tasks. We'll need people. We will need a crew to drive all of our wonderful things to the park and set up around 10am. Putting it all back in the car will happen after the march itself begins. It's hot at Dolores Park. We will have water so everyone can stay hydrated. We ask that you limit your beer consumption to a responsible amount while at the tent and pitch in some $$ for the beers your drink. Please let me know if you have a vehicle and can help us get everything there! We also need people to help out at the tent during the day. Those who help are welcome to some free beer, please just keep it reasonable. Meet at Rebecca's House 8:30am to load up vehicles. Meet at Dolores Park at 10am to unload and get a sweet tent site. Pack up at 3pm

  • Road Trip to visit Kate and QMB Bend, OR

    We're planning a road trip to visit Bend, Oregon! Co-Founder Kate Summerill has recently moved to Bend and started a new chapter of QMB. We'll go visit and sample the many amazing beers in and around Bend. Maybe even brew a beer?! The date is somewhat tentative. We discussed "late July" and Kate has confirmed that July 19-21 works. The drive from Berkeley is about 8 hours. Let's discuss details, and make plans. Please feel free to comment about: * dates that work for you * departure time * if you have a vehicle/can offer rides * return time

  • Beginner Brew Day

    Oak Barrel Winecraft

    $10.00

    Have you been wondering what magic conjuring the lead brewers are doing every brew day? Maybe you want to brush up your brew skills in anticipation of the club brew comp. Or maybe you just want to get comfortable brewing so you can brew on your own. Enter the Beginner Brew Day. Brew a beer with a small group and learn the whole process from recipe selection to packaging. Walk away with a 6-pack of finished beer to call your own We will: • meet up at the Brew store (Oak Barrel Winecraft) • pick a recipe together and grab ingredients • go back to Emily's, clean, and sanitize • Brew!! • clean up afterwards Three weeks after the brew day, we will meet back up to package the beer into bottles and/or kegs. THE FINE PRINT This is a two-part event. We will schedule the second part to work for everyone, but please only sign up if you are committed to both parts. So that everyone will be able to get active brew time, I limit this event to 5 people. Cost is $10 towards ingredients and supplies (propane, ice, etc.). Because of the small size and popularity of these events, I will ask for confirmation and payment via paypal/venmo before moving people from "waitlist" to "going." Please make sure you include your email when you sign up. Refunds will be given for anyone cancelling at least a week in advance. There will be some minimal homework. Everyone will also be expected to be an active participant in a successful brew day and take part in the whole day from 10:00am to approximately 6pm. (Rebecca always makes it look real easy, but all that prep and clean up she does takes awhile!)
