Where are you located? DOZE is based in California’s central Contra Costa county area, but our members hail from all over Contra Costa, Alameda, and Solano counties, and sometimes further afield. Our monthly meetings are held at the downstairs meeting room at Lindsay Wildlife Experience, in Walnut Creek.
When does DOZE meet? Our regular monthly meetings are held on the last Monday of the month, at the downstairs meeting room at Lindsay Wildlife Experience, in Walnut Creek. Holidays and special events can alter this schedule from time to time, so it is best to check the website, Facebook, or Slack, for any announced changes.
What’s required to Join? Officially joining DOZE is possible through paying yearly club dues ($40 January to January). Dues are applied toward meeting facility rental, discounted club events, and discounted club apparel. We are a non-profit club and adjust yearly dues as necessary to balance yearly income and expenses. Membership has it’s rewards, including a 5% discount at Morebeer (showroom purchases only) and pint discounts at various East Bay taprooms.
Can I join if I brew cider/mead/perry? Yes!
Does DOZE have an online discussion forum? Many of our club events and other topics are announced and discussed openly on DOZE’s Facebook page. DOZE also has a workspace on the Slack app which serves as our internal club forum.
What about the website accounts? Website accounts were, at one time, intended to give club members access to a members-only forum. However, that part of the website has not been utilized by the club in several years. We are no longer accepting website memberships.
