Beer tasting, Saturday, 15 November

Dear Members and Guests

Did you know that beer dates back to the beginning of recorded time? They have found Sumerian hymns to beer and the Code of Hammurabi had laws about the making of beer already in 1754 BC. From the Great Wall of China to the slopes of the Andes, you will find a local brewery making this delectable nectar.

Here in Germany alone, there are over 1,300 breweries producing over 5,000 brands of beer.
On November 15, we are going to taste some of these beers. So please join us for our

Beer tasting at the "Auld Rogue" Irish Pub in Stuttgart-Vaihingen.

Five fabulous beers will be served, covering a whole gamut of flavours and styles from Germany and the Czech Republic. A brief introduction will be given to each of the beers and the best way to enjoy them. The rest is up to your palate!

Date: Saturday, November 15, 2014
Location: the Irish Pub "The Auld Rogue" in 70563 Stuttgart-Vaihingen, Hauptstr. 57
Time frame: 13:00 - 17:00
Cost: 20 € per person - upon reservation you'll receive upfront payment information.
Includes: five special beers (about 0,25 l per person per beer) and 3 courses of finger food. There will be pitchers of tap water on the tables. All other drinks (apart from the beers served for tasting and the tap water) and different kinds of food than the finger food provided during the tasting, are not included in the 20 € and will cost extra.
By courtesy of the Pub we will be able to raffle off some great prizes during the tasting.
The tasting will officially be over by 17:00, but you are welcome to stay and further enjoy the Pub. We are limited to 50 people, first come first serve.



Welcome to the Stuttgarter Saloniker

Dear Members and Guests

We have an additional Veterans Day treat for you this month! In addition to the beer tasting on Saturday, 15 November, we have the special opportunity to attend a unique concert presented by the

Stuttgarter Saloniker

Tuesday, 11 November, 2014 at 19.00,

at the Rohracker Wine Cooperative Kelter,

Sillenbucher Strasse 10, 70329 Stuttgart-Rohracker.

The Stuttgarter Saloniker are a salon orchestra well known in the Stuttgart area. They present music from the roaring twenties through the swing and big band eras, from classic to jazz. Their trademark is great musical entertainment presented with skill and a fine touch of humor. Presented in the Wine Kelter of the Rohracker Vintners, this special concert is a salute to fine music and fine wine. The program description (translated from www.saloniker.de) says: With "Wine, Women and Song" from Johann Strauss and "Herbstweisen" from Emile Waldteufel, orchestra director Patrick Siben has developed a rousing program that fits perfectly in the heady atmosphere of a Württemberg wine kelter. In that magical place where earlier grapes were pressed with the feet and the fresh, aromatic fermenting juice was produced, where happy festivals celebrating rich harvests took place, and where tears were shed over failed years, the Saloniker rise to new heights and take the audience with them in a fine evening of music, wine and song.

We will meet at the Kelter entrance at 18.30.
We have 25 tickerts reserved, first come, first served. We will pay individually at the door. Cost: € 18.
We have seats reserved for our group inside the Kelter. The concert will be in two parts, and lasts about two hours. During the intermission "New Wine" and Onion pastry (Zwiebelkuchen) will be available.

We hope we have aroused your interest! Come join us for a lively, entertaining and memorable musical evening.
