    Y'all will probably recognize me....since I'm in my avatar over to the left. And usually there aren't a ton of chicks at these things. Don't really have anything to share right now, but I might take a trip this weekend so that I can pick up something.

    This is a great idea, I have always wondered who the hell are the people with weird avatars. On a side note I just got back from Wisconsin with some brews. If anyone wants to knock off any New Glarus or other beers we dont get hit me up.

    These things usually have way to much beer. It is always great if in the early morning before, Freetail opens, that there is good grub. People have brought meat and cheese plates or breakfast tacos. Hell nobody will castrate you for not bringing beer:) Personally, for me, I am at the point were I want to try the Freetail stuff more than what is brought to the tastings.

    Everyone seems to come up to me and tell me who I am rather than to ask me who I am. It's kinda starting to make me paranoid. :p

    I'd vote for the TREAT or the Olde Hickory. I'll add a GI Night Stalker to my list.

    Will do. Unfortunately I drank a few of the ones I acquired for the tasting that never was. This is probably my last hurrah of the year(work), but I may be in Austin early December for my bday.

    @mikezomibe- easy, bring the riserva. This is after all a sour release.

    Differs for every release. Before 11:00, though.

    miikezombie Savant (345) Texas Aug 13, 2010

    Don't know who this mike zombie character is, but I will bring the Riserva plus another sour.

    I meant before 11pm, because they start to shut down for the night.

    I bet its gone in 2 min. Gimmick beers have an odd curiosity factor. Plus I don't want a pink bottle in my closet, it looks weird.

    A big tasting like this is the perfect place to off a bottle of that shizzzzz.

    I will save some for those who haven't tried it yet(not just because I have had it and never, ever want to drink it again!)

    I think I'm going to drive in from Fort Worth that AM...and I'm getting that at 5am in spite of everyone else and I'm bringing 60 sherpa's ;)

    While the first part is true (driving down that am) the rest is bullshit...I mean in the best case I could only scrounge up like 10 Sherpas on this short notice. What I lack in pre party brews I hope to make up for in kolaches from West.

    Is it that bad, never had it, maybe I should trade it out with 09 Bourbon County bomber. I mean I like bacon and I like doughnuts.

    I don't think it's that bad so long as it's not too cold when you drink it. The smoke character is nice. The maple and bacon are there and it's kinda weird, but not necessarily off-putting imo. Would I pay $13 for it again? Hell no. Would I pay $6-$8 for it? Quite possibly.
     
  36. LadyOfMuchBeer

    LadyOfMuchBeer Savant (380) Texas Apr 30, 2011

    I say bring it, if nothing else, its a great conversation starter. I didn't think it was that bad, and its a must for tickers to tick....I'm just not a fan of bacon grease. I like my bacon crunchy.

    It seems to be pretty hit or miss depending on the person. I've heard some call it the worst beer ever and others have absolutely loved it. A couple people each brought one to a bottle share I went to a while back and there was a group of guys that flocked to it each time one was opened. I think its OK in small doses, but I wouldn't want much more than a few ounces.

    Grendle Aficionado (220) Texas Apr 11, 2012

    A 3 ounce pour was enough for me but my wife loved. She killed the bomber to avoid a drain pour. I wasn't impressed but the aroma was beautiful.
