4.1.13 @ Grape & Grain and monthly bottle share info (3.17.13)

Discussion in 'US - Pacific' started by AdamSimpson, Mar 1, 2013.

  1. Hey guys,

    Just wanted to give you all a heads up that we just put our keg of 4.1.13 online and its tastin good. It should be up for about a week tops, so get it while its fresh.

    Now that the holidays and beer week have mellowed out, lets get back on track with these bottle shares. I am confirming 100% that we will have our monthly share on 3.17.13. As always, anyone is invited, tentative RSVP is encouraged.

    Adam

    Woot! I'll be there, hopefully with new HF goodies if my box gets here in time.

    I should be there. May bring some home brew in addition to a few interesting cellar eccentricities (maybe some more Kuhnhenn?).

    Awesome! Unfortunately my Sunday band practice is back in full swing so I won't know until the week prior if I'm open. Any chance of Saturday shares?
     
  5. Does anyone have a Shmaltz Jewbelation 12? I have 10-15 execpt 12. I am more than willing to bring that vertical, no drama.
     
  6. Of course, I'm in. Requests?

    I should definitely be in for this and will probably bring at least one more non-BA buddy. Also have a box of HF stuff arriving next week, so will most likely bring a bottle or two from that.

    I should be able to make it. No idea what I'll bring yet. Probably Bruery+.
     
  11. I'll be there with some FFF and others.
     
  12. What time? Bday party is day before...hoping I'm up for it the day after :)

    This is coming up soon. What are people planning to bring? It will be St. Patrick's Day, so if anyone has a Fantome Magic Ghost squirreled away, there's never a better time for it...

    My brett homebrew isn't quite ready yet, but I will bring my tripel, which is tasting really well now. Approach with caution, though. I'm pretty sure it's between 10 and 11%. Kind of more a blonde quad at this point.

    Also planning to bring some Kuhnhenn Winter Solstice beers I doubt anyone else has tried before. Some great, some tragic!
     
  14. Happy to bring Cascade. Wish my BWXIV shipment was here as I'd bring that. Also have a KRE shipment I'll bring next time. :)

    I should be able to make this one. Not sure what I'll bring yet. Maybe beers with green labels?

    LIMEARITA!
     
  19. I'll bring the green dye for the Loons...sure everyone would love that (j/k of course). ^_-
    Armand & Tommy has green labels...or Green Wax on 2010 Dark Lord, Rittenhouse Rye Eclipse, Upland Kiwi...noticing not a whole lot of beer with Green Labels...
    Adam, anything you're dying to try or a type of beer you prefer?
     
  20. Upland Kiwi sounds rad. I have only had a couple Uplands, would def like to discover more.

    I will search for something Green themed, but unlikely to come up with something.

    Just to confirm so everybody knows, tasting will be at 1pm.
     
  21. Looks like my wife will be back home in time for me to drive up. I am in a cellar clearing mood... so I will probably just double up and bring equal numbers of yellow and blue labels.

    I'll be making the trip up again with a buddy. Bringing HF Norma, a Sebago BBA Barleywine, and probably something else. Think my buddy is bringing CFH '13 + something else.

    holy crap sounds like an incredible line up. sucks i missed it. i was way to hungover to go after saturday tho :/

    how was 13 churchhill?
     
  28. Damn...two top wants I missed (Funkwerks Tropic King and Juicy)....shouldn't have stopped for Eggettes ;-p

    Thanks to everyone for their contributions and making for great drinking friends. A special thank you to Adam for hosting our drunk asses again. You the man!!! :)

    BM me or post to the Peach Party thread if you're coming as I won't be posting my address publicly:
    http://beeradvocate.com/community/t...-can-eat-a-peach-for-hours.70425/#post-990156
    Need to bring a decent beer (automatically accepted: Fou Foune, Peche N Brett, Persica, Cascade Apricot or Noyeaux, Fantasia, and other Epic peaches...no shelf beer). If you don't have any of the nice peach ones, bring something equivalent (if you don't know what is equivalent, ask me or your peers as we'll gladly help you select an "appropriate" beer from your cellar).
    In addition to a beer (or 2 or 20), you should bring a dish made with peaches/apricots/nectarines, etc. (or steaks or something that adds to the party...ex: someone may not have enough meat for their dish, so bringing extra meat is appreciated). We have a stove with 4 burners, microwave, oven with at least 2 racks, and a regular BBQ (open to someone bringing an extra).

    See you all in a month or so. :)
     
  29. Thanks Adam for hosting!!!
