    Just wanted to condense the thread and make it understandable for everyone.

    Here are the details.

    Friday, March 29th, from 7 PM - 12am at the Beaumont Inn Conference Room in Walker, MI (2151 Holton Ct.), we will be having a bottle share. Please Bring a few beers to share and possibly snacks.

    Please Update the Spreadsheet so we don't overlap too much and so we can maybe get a vertical of a few beers as well. Also put what snacks you may bring on the spreadsheet

    Snacks are not mandatory but BEER is!!!

    "SAEMICK" and "TastyDeliciousness" reserved the 100$ conference room for us so please bring $5 to pitch in for the room.

    Also bring a tasting glass as cups/glasses will NOT be provided.

    Here is the Link to the spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AvcynnOnb8crdFF5Qk5ncFNtS0tFWHZWNmhSSWN6VWc&usp=sharing

    I look forward to a great time. I am glad i asked about this as it is 70% the reason i have went to KBS day the last 2 years(for bottle share) and super glad some people(mentioned above) took initiative and set this thing in motion. Should be a great time and some GREAT beer!

    As mentioned in the other thread, I'm in. Heading to California next week and hoping to score some goodies out there that I can bring to the bottle share. I'll add to the spreadsheet after the trip.

    Thanks again for putting this together, guys.

    I have never done a bottle share before but my Biggest Loser contest ends the Wed before and I'll be looking to celebrate. Since somebody is bringing a 2010 Abyss I'll bring my 2012.

    Unfortunately I am not going to be able to make the trip down for KBS day. Just won't work out with my schedule, and I'm afraid I've partied enough this winter. Have fun everyone!

    Updated the spreadsheet with a couple of the bottles I'll be bringing. I'll be adding more as it gets closer/ I look through what I have.

    Can't wait!!!

    tempting...
  12. Post moved on me.....:(

    As mentioned in the prior thread, I am willing to pick up beers from different breweries that some might not be able to obtain where they live. Revoultion, Pipeweoks, Spitful are all good local brews. Let me know what I can pickup for ya and maybe we can do a trade! The above all make bombers $7-$10 a piece. Just hit me up and we can discuss.

    Look forward to meet all of you and drink some goodness!

    saemick Aficionado (195) Illinois Jan 16, 2010

    Was actually going to mention the same thing myself. Between TastyDelicousness & I, we'll gladly bring up extra local brews from Chicagoland that you're not able to obtain. Feel free to BM either/both of us; we're both friendly folk ;)

    Can't wait till the 29th!!!

    I was unable to get a KBS ticket but feel like this would be worth the trip from Cleveland!

    Is that appropriate?
  15. MSEGUIN

    MSEGUIN Savant (375) Michigan Apr 6, 2011

    Yes, because there is nothing stopping you from double fisting snifters of KBS all day Saturday. Plus Im sure you will be able to trade some people for some KBS while in town.

    So you can get in just can't buy a 12pk? I think I could bring some very tradable beers from Cleveland and come back with a great haul...

    Absolutely. You can come for the bottle share, stay for the KBS day and drink KBS off tap till you can't see anymore!

    RayOhioFelton Savant (490) Ohio May 24, 2011

    So drink 3 KBS...nice! Sounds like a great opportunity to make new friends then immediately offend them all beyond repair! I'm going to try to get a buddy of mine in on this...

    Exactly my man. The party is open to all no ticket needed. I personally will be double fisting snifters of KBS alongside my dad (yes my dad, awesome BA not on BA) till we decide to crawl home.

  21. Now this sounds like a guy I could party with! Tells you upfront he is going to offend you. Don't mind that as long as you take some offending in return.
  22. I updated my list. Bringing some goodies from Florida.

    I have no cool friends willing to take this trip with me but still considering i...start a new job Monday and not sure of the schedule for my training...I might make the trip solo with just me, some fun food and a few bottles of my closest buddies! If I don't make it I hope everyone has fun that weekend!
  29. Guess this means I need to make another batch of crack pretzels? Good thing I get off work early that day. :p

    What happened to the talks of a line bottle share Saturday morning at Founders? Do I need to start its own thread? ;)

  32. I see things are coming together nicely. 29th is going to be a great time.

    Just a friendly reminder to all. Please update the sheet with beers you are bringing. I ask that if you are bringing a friend or drinker with you, I ask you have them bring their fair share as well. We want to make sure there are enough beers for all to try. I think we had an unwritten rule(or so it appears) that we would bring approx 2-3 bombers or there the equivalent of. I myself will probably bring an extra bomber or two....

    Also, if there is anything local from Chi-Town that I can bring, let me know. Some good locals around here.

    Cheers!
