    Stoked! Always excited about Freetail events. I'll have some great pals in tow, plus some fantastical beers of my own devices, and from other great minds as well. Viva los amigos del Freetail!

    I am now getting worried about losing my ability to get a ticket to mules. How stressful you people are!

    I just poured out most of a Strawberry Shorts Cake on Sunday... I wish I saved it for the tasting now that I see you list. Plus the Scorpion would have helped rinse the taste from my mouth. Lol

    Who said anything about mules? The friends I am bringing along are the geekiest of all the beer nerds. At any rate, still excited to share some awesome beer with you kind folks.
  14. LadyOfMuchBeer

    LadyOfMuchBeer Savant (380) Texas Apr 30, 2011

    Sorry, a few other people had mentioned bringing friends so they can get more bottles and I just projected that. I am doing all I can to try to get there and get something I really want to try, but I have no choice but to drive down morning of. I am getting very nervous.

    Anyone know where we should stay hotel-wise? We're bringing a small dog, which complicates things a bit in terms of hotel stay. I've got it covered as far as a place for him to stay during the bottle share.

    I'll be wearing some TCU garb and my +1 has very long curly black hair.

    What glasses should I bring? I really don't have any nice taster glasses and I think my teku glasses might be a little overkill ;)

    starkmarvelo Advocate (500) Texas Jan 20, 2010

    If I am in the first 60, I'm willing to buy a bottle for some one else who isn't as fortunate. Just let me know.

    I'm gonna be there early, but the only bottle I have that would be out of the ordinary would be Tenaya Creek's Imperial Stout. If anyone is interested, I'll bring it. If not I'll just leave it at home.

    I have no idea whats going on anymore on this thread but for one thing albinos are not their own race, they are just like you and I with an absence of melanin. They are very nice and also deep thinkers. Getting back to tomorrow. Heading down to SA to stay in a cheap hotel and getting to Freetail around 720. First bottle will be a good one for you tickers.

    Damn you Josh! I have to close tonight, so I don't really see myself being there before 10 tomorrow. :(

    Scratch my previous additions to the bottle list. I'll be bringing
    Miller light for the albinos... Ank You.

    Well, looks like I'm not going to make this. Damn it. If anyone from the Austin area is only planning on buying only 1 bottle of the Roja and wants to pick up a second for me, I'll trade ya something really nice for it. Just throwing it out there. :eek:

    He won't make it this go around, because he is sick. He would love you forever if you brought malt liquor, Lone Star, or Ghost Face Killer.

    People planning on gathering at 8? Coming from North Austin so still trying to decide if we can make it in time for the tasting.
  32. xpimptastikx

    xpimptastikx Initiate (0) Texas Oct 8, 2008

    I'm coming from North Austin and leaving around 8. I also don't really care about getting Fortuna.

    Ahaley Aficionado (120) Texas Dec 24, 2009

    Cool. Good to know. Just never been to a FT tasting so I wasn't quite sure about the plan of action. Thanks.

    Gonna head up there to watch the 2nd half of the Cascadia cup hopefully. I'm sure all the festivities will be done pretty soon, but I'll be wearing an orange Dynamos hat! Didn't think of bringing my Pumpkinator so I have no beer for the tasting (which I already probably am late for).

    I had a blast as well. It's good to put faces with the forum handles. Thanks everyone for all the great beers, especially the White Chocolate and the Figaro. Truely excellent. And to #61, I hope you enjoy the Fortuna, I was probably just going to trade it anyway. Looking forward to Dia de la Muerta.

    The best part was giving jl28r1 a spring board Doomsday Device off the guard rail. What a rush!

    Double down on the awesome time. I'm still a bit speechless at the generosity everyone showed, awesome rare bottles and great home brews. Can't wait for the next event, thanks so much everyone
