The Zymurgeeks homebrew club met up with the Fungus Federation http://www.fungusfed.org/ for a memorial day of food and homebrew. We supplied six corny kegs of beer and they provided all of the food for a warm and relaxing day in Scotts Valley, which is in the hills just east of Santa Cruz.
From the fungus website:
"The Fungus Federation of Santa Cruz (FFSC) is an informal affiliation of friendly, fun-loving, sometimes frenzied fungophiles dedicated to the knowledge, pursuit and appreciation of wild mushrooms. We organize many activities during the mushroom season from September through May."
It was interesting to see how the brewers formed a seperate group, congregating around a picnic table, discussing their passion for beer.
I don't know. I wish I could write that this was an exciting event but the truth is, not a lot was going on. We ate, drank, conversed and played horse shoes and before you could say "magic mushroom", the day ended and I made the trek back down to Aptos with an empty keg of Saison. Not that there is anything wrong with that.
