    The event is pending approval right now, I'll put up a link when it is done. Here's the jist of it though:



    Craft & Growler - 3601 Parry Ave Dallas, Tx 75226

    This is for BeerAdvocate Members only. Please do not advertise on facebook or other avenues. Also, please RSVP, it's very important if we want to continue doing these.

    2 large format bottles or 44oz MAXIMUM, of beer that is either not distributed in the DFW area (Freetail, out of state, etc.) or is a vintage of 2+ years.

    BYO Glassware

    Parking/Dart Rail - There is a sizable parking lot behind C&G. Dart Rail is highly encouraged, use the Dart Rail Green Line - Fair Park Station. It is literally right across the street from C&G.

    Please take a look at their incredible growler selection and purchase something. They easily have the best selection of growlers in DFW and quite possibly Texas. They also sell pints up at their bar, maybe there will be something up there you haven't had.

    C&G opens at noon so if you get there early please be patient. I'd imagine bottles will begin to be opened around 12:15.




    Craft & Growler is allowing us to have our bottle share from 12 to 3pm. At 3pm all bottles will need to be put away or taken out to vehicles. Last time CFH64's wife started a tip jar for the C&G staff, brilliant idea! We will do this again and tipping is suggested if you are unable to make a purchase of a growler or growler fill.

    Also this is a Sunday, there will be a Saturday bottle share either late September or early October from 12 to 2pm.


    List you bottles when you know what you are bringing! Question, comments, concerns can reply below.


    Cheers & Beers,
    -Matt

    Count me in - plus IMO start up a Google doc listing the bottles so it'll be a easier to access all at once.

    Were you going to take care of all the edits by yourself, or can we make edits?

    Mine can change, but as of now:
    2012 Freetail La Muerta
    2009 Gouden Carolus Cuvee Van De Keizer Blauw

    You can add them yourself. I'm pretty sure I made it public, if not I will later.

    *EDIT* It's able to be edited by anyone now.

    Since it looks like I will be in town from Austin that Saturday/Sunday, I will plan on bringing up some bombers to share.

    I still have some from a stash from Michigan/New Hampshire and I may throw in 2 cans of ABW Heavy Machinery (1/2 IPA/Double IPA)

    Basically neither Hell nor high water (and a job I suppose) will keep me from this. Any of y'all who didn't attend the last share are in for something pretty awesome. As always I can provide beer for any participant who lacks the beer for such a tasting. Just BM me and we can figure out something

    Since I will be in town, I will swing by. Doubt I stay the whole time as I will have to drive back to Austin at some point in the evening.

    Dallas peeps, is anyone coming from Richardson or north of Richardson to the bottle share that may be able to scoop me on the way down?

    BTW if you can get someone to bring you to a DART station, the train ride is super easy. Craft & Growler is right next to Fair Park station.

    I'm thinking of making this my first BA bottleshare I attend. I've got a few things in mind but I don't want to be the newbie that brings something lame... Is anybody that is attending interested in trying Alesmith's Speedway Stout? Maybe Brewdog's Cocoa Psycho?

    I'm also new to BA bottleshares. 2009 O'dell Woodcut No. 3 and possibly a Hoppin' Frog Mean Manalishi or a Schlafly BBA Imperial Stout? I'm waiting on some stuff in the mail, so something may change.

    Since I plan on being there on Sunday, does anyone need anything from the Austin area that you can't get up there?

    I'd be happy to swing by a store and get what I can.
