    The date I am thinking is March 22nd, my place. Where are you holders of rare beer, looking for Walt, Mike, Rubio and all you Dallas and Houston bad asses. Lets do this.

    If I lived in Austin, I would bring out some goodies, too far for a drinking day trip....

    Wish we could Josh but won't be in Austin for awhile, trying to work as much OT as possible for an upcoming trip to San Fran. One of these days...we'll have another tasting/pub crawl/cellar raid.

    All of you out of towners can crash at my place. Don't let distance scare you.

    now I may be interested again, lol.
    I always feel weird crashing on the floor or a couch at someone's place though...

    I'm sure he'll let you sleep in bed with him but you have to be the little spoon. :)

    He will not, but he does have a spare bedroom and big ass couch. If this is not beer advocacy I don't know what is

    Don't worry, Josh is an excellent host with interesting neighbors. I've crashed at his place so the bed is nice and broken in. There may or may not have been spooning. Just be sure to request he takes you to Common Interest on a weekend, can't go wrong.
  14. I'll bring the Bud Light Platinum ^_^

    Is 2009 Abyss rare enough to attend? Houston wants to represent.
  19. atxdelivery

    atxdelivery Aficionado (245) Texas Aug 28, 2010

    Houston does not want to represent with 09 Abyss. Houston should represent with a Wooden Hell or an 08 Perfect Storm. I know Clear Lake would!

    I'm interested and have sweet rarity laying around in my cellar. But, I'm with Rubio, Saturdays will work best for me, Im not off until 9 on weekdays.
  21. Blah. Saturday is the one day I couldn't go unless it started at like 8:30/9:00pm. Friday or Sunday would be fine though o_O

    atxdelivery Aficionado (245) Texas Aug 28, 2010

    Saturday it is fellows, Jason take that day off.
  23. Lol. I told you, they won't let us take weekend days off. There is a blackout. But I can still make it in the evening o_O

    I have a Black Xantus I've been dying to pop...
  30. atxdelivery

    atxdelivery Aficionado (245) Texas Aug 28, 2010

    The olive branch is extended to all but here is what I have so far from peeps. In an effort to lead by example Ill bust out a BA Rum Hunahphu, Dark Horizon 1st edition, Bells Batch 7000 and New Glarus Iced Barley Wine. My boy Ryan whose place this will be held has a Rare, this guy Rubio has some nice Cantillon and this other dude Jason has a CBS and some other nice stuff, plus whatever anyone else wants to bring. The date is not this Sat but next Saturday and Black Xantus would be a great addition.

    Next Saturday March 24th? I have some pretty sweet juice that needs to get drank before I move to Dallas
  32. What time are you starting? Can't get off work that day so I'm trapped till 8. So I dunno if I'll make it.

    Man if I didn't just have a week and a half off for seminars even not knowing you guys I would be there. Just got 12/12 Pliney and Blind Pig and have some great old Barley Wines and a few Founders and Aggressive Ales. Let me know if there is ever one of these in Houston, or at a later date. I will come up with some stuff for sure.

    The 24th. Sam no need to take those to Dallas.
  37. atxdelivery

    atxdelivery Aficionado (245) Texas Aug 28, 2010

    I may possibly have to substitute something in my offering because of a possible trade with another nice replacement. Should be a good time, good beer and good food.
  38. BgThang

    atxdelivery Aficionado (245) Texas Aug 28, 2010

    Not 100% sure I was thinking about 6ish. Probably going to be at my place or club house unless someone has better set up for a tasting, open to ideas for this. Might trade the BA Hunahphu, if I do ill substitute an 05-09 Bourbon County vert.
  40. lol what are you trading the BA Hunahpu for? cause I wants it >_<
