    I'm definitely in and definitely bringing a couple friends. Definitely going to bring a couple growlers up from Sante Adairius Rustic Ales, then probably a bottle or two out of the cellar as well, which I will determine later when I get home.

  3. I think I'm going to make it. Might be flying solo, might bring the wife if her meeting is done early enough.

    Going to bring a bottle or two as well.

    Like I said, I'm excited it's on a Saturday. And with the gf coming, it's an excuse to bring more than I normally would :).

  5. Can I join you guys on the 19th? I happen to be in the area this week and would like to bring some rare brews, maybe a whale.

  6. Hope you guys still have extra spots- I can bring a surly and some other 12oz...

    If there are any bottles of that Two Pilots still around, can you mule me a couple?

    Jesus this is turning into a shitshow of epic proportions. What a great way to prepare for Beer Week 2013!

  10. Sounds good. If you have multiples of the 12oz, or large formats, it sounds like this share is getting pretty big.

    Yeah, not a problem. Actually headed there in an hour or so, so I will gran them then assuming they still have them (which they did yesterday).

    And I will bring a growler of Brewer's Beard too.

    Sorry Adam, all gone. I'm meeting Tim in the morning to fill my growlers, so I'll see if he has any hiding in the back.
  13. I'm in, (Caltrain!) looks like I'll be solo for the first hour or so, then my wife will be joining in later.

    One bottle I'm bringing is from 08, the other is REALLY fresh.

    I'm going to try to join you all tomorrow. Never been to one of these before--looking forward to meeting everyone.
  15. This grew into something a little bigger than I anticipated. It required some serious begging and pleading, and a few favors called in, but I am able to drop the kids off at a friends for a couple hours. Hopefully I will remember to pick them up on time...

    Probably looking at a Crooked Stave WWBY... and something else too.

  16. WTF? My younger daughter woke up this morning with a fever... and just like that I can't drop them off and I am out again. This is like some kind of conspiracy, probably orchestrated by my wife somehow! I have a feeling I am going to tear up a little when I see the bottle list posted...

    2007 upland strawberry was my favorite, dammit was it tasty

    Turned into a great time, was cool seeing and meeting you guys!

    Btw chez monieux was the nastiest beer I've ever smelled. Stinky foot fungus or something, it made idiots drool drinkable
