    Who's going? And who's bringing what? Trying to figure out what to bring...

    I am going, but I have not decided what I am bringing yet. Maybe some more Jester King stuff or possibly some Logsdon or something along those lines. What time is everyone going? I dont know if I want to head there earlier than noon, but who knows.

    Will be there with bells on...minus the bells (I think I've used that before....).

    Haven't decided what to bring. Maybe some Logsdon or Stillwater?

    Will try to be there as a "guest" of a reserve member. Not sure what I'm bringing, but I've got a couple rarities.

    Will be there, probably around noon. Planning on bringing a couple of 32 oz growlers from a new brewer in Florida as of now

    I don't think I'll be dragging along anything too crazy. Maybe a '10 Czar and/or the AC Golden Apricot.

    Hmmm, I do have a '09 Czar not in the cellar...maybe a little side-by-side?

    I've got '08, and I'd really like to do '08-'11 or '12. People jump in here if you can help out with the '11.

    Also, I'm hoping to bring my Elder Brett I've been hanging on to since last year. The Pure Guava I popped at Zwanze Day was a big hit and delicious right now, so that plus Batch #2 of Elder Brett hitting makes me want to revisit this.

    Steve_0 Savant (320) Colorado Mar 14, 2012 Verified

    Guava was tasting nice? Wish I could have seen that one because I couldn't handle it when it first came out. I didnt know there was another Batch of Elder Brett coming out, either. This gets me excited.

    Damn, wish I was going Saturday. I've got some random Czar bottles from '05, '06, '07, '08 and '10 and I've been looking for a chance to share these.

    I have a '12 Czar!

    I was thinking a couple Cigar City's and I also have some LH Fade to Black Vol # 1 that I can bring. I could also bring a Bruery Smoking Wood (obvs not "rare")

    Will trade for 5 pounds of fresh bacon!
     
  19. Is that the current Rye version? I can bring a Bourbon for a side by side.

    Persica, please!

    rob2654 Aficionado (215) Colorado May 20, 2004

    Yes, current Rye version. I will bring it.

    Alright then. I'm bringing my Persica, Czar, and some less rare ones, maybe Boogoop and Poppaskull. See y'all at noon-ish.

  24. SO much cool stuff this weekend I'll be missing...BUT, I made a commitment to help out with bottle sorting for Vail BBBB. I'm sure a ticket to Vail will help ease the pain of missing this party.....

    I will miss you all. I have to hang out with my stupid 3 yr old, my lame newborn, and my dumb wife all day, and then go see jackass Louis CK with her and no kids tonight. Such a shitshow. So wish I could be with you all....

    In all seriousness, I WILL miss seeing everyone very much today. Have a great time, all! Give Chad a hug, Eli a kiss, Danny a reach around, and just punch Travis in the head for me.

    I was going to give Danny a reach around, but instead gave him $6. Totally worth it

    Damnit. I knew I should've brought notes. I gave all of your gifts to the wrong people. Eli sure had a smile on his face, though...
