    is there any idea how many people are looking to attend this?

    From past attendance, I would guess 12-20 people. Some are bringing more friends this time around, so it'll probably be closer to 20. All are welcome, but there's one rule: bring craft beer to share.

    Just curious as to how big this pool is going to get to. I planned on bringing around 12-15 bottles and a growler of suge knight to make up for the friend and the lady.

    Unfortunately the wife and I are leaving really early (5am) the next morning but we (or at least I) would like to stop by for a couple hours as this sounds amazing.

    Don't have as much crazy stuff as you guys but I do have some NC beers due to a recent trip to Asheville and 2010 Darkness, Greenbush Rage, Weyerbacher (14 and Blasphemy) and maybe the two versions of the Pumpkin imperial stout from St. Arnold if I can convince a friend to come (he got them for me and I've promised to share them with him - Pumpkinator / Reserve 9).

    NC beers - Foothills Seeing Double IPA, Blue Mountain Local Species, Blue Mountain Dark Hollow, Olde Hickory Lindley Park.

    Wow I might have to ditch the party I am throwing at my house and come to this event....

    So the St. Arnold Pumpkinator / Divine Reserve #9 is definitely in.

    I'd like to try this year's Darkness (since Chicago didn't get any) so I'd bring the 2010 vintage if whomever posted about bringing the 2012 vintage did so too so we could do a side by side.
  14. My buddy is bringing one.

    I posted the beers I am bringing in the Chicago Beer Lover's thread, but I'll put them here too since not everyone seems to be posting there and I used a different user name. It's not as much as some people plan to bring, but hopefully the quality should make up for some of that :) In any case, I'll be bringing Abraxas (Perennial 2012), Barrel aged Yeti (2011), Eclipse Elijah Craig 20yr (2011), King Henry, Cognac Moloko, and I think probably a Love Child #2. The girlfriend may be coming after the party has started, but before the world ends... I hope!

    Really looking forward to this!

    Thats a lie and you know it. Plus, someone BM'd me this morning, so just clarifying that its not me that you need to message about Darkness

    Thanks Fitz for hosting us all - had a fantastic time. Sad that we had to head out as early as we did but still ...
  23. Great times last night, looking forward to the next one. Also, if someone is missing a Darkness snifter let me know. One ended up in my box. I was looking for my Dark Lord taster before I left and someone must have thought I said darkness
