    Gonna have to choose between this and the Jester King Anniversary. Maybe I'll drink sours or maybe I'll drink stouts.

    Wow. I sure hope to be able to make this one again. It's been way to long since I've been to a tasting. If I can make it, I will definitely have to bring some of the Gentlemen's Chocolate Covered Bacon.

    Hmm Chocolate covered bacon, now if somebody will wear a pair of salmon colored Khaki pants this tasting will officially have Old School Karma. Thats how you do it.

    To drink amazing beers or to drink amazing beers? That is the question.

    With the surprise kegs of Jester King, that may be the deciding factor for me, had this been my decision to make. ;)

    I won't be making this one after all. I think I will keep Kevin's birthday bottle share as my one for the month. I plan on bringing a lot out for him, so I guess I will see everyone who makes it out to Petrol that day.

    If any BA member is coming from Sugar Land/Rosenberg/Richmond, I'd love to catch a ride. Split the gas. Or hell, even offer you a bottle for your gracious transportation.

    I'll be there for sure. But no longer bringing Moloko with me. I decided to turn it into a stout-infused chocolate sauce to drizzle over ice cream. WORTH IT. I'll find something equally interesting to bring in it's place.[​IMG]
     
  31. Ill be there... bringing a 2012 Mother of all Storms and a BBA Ol Raspy XV

    Really, don't worry about that. Bring something you enjoy, that the bar does not have. While I very much enjoy our tastings, they to often become who has the bigger you know what, err in the form of WALZES. Which was never the intent, just how things evolved. In reality we always have to much to drink, so if you want to bring some snacks or buy some snacks from the Saucer to share with everyone that is perfectly fine as well.
