St. Patty's Day Tasting - Durham/Chapel Hill, NC

Discussion in 'US - South-Atlantic' started by VncentLIFE, Feb 3, 2013.

  1. Hey BAs,

    Just wanted to throw out an invitation to anyone in the area. Me and Adam (bluecane) are having a tasting on our shared birthday (well its on the 14th, but who wants to have an epic tasting on a Thursday?--so were moving it to Sunday) at my apartment on the Durham/Chapel Hill line on St. Patty's Day (march 17). I know inflames77, RedNeckBeerz, OSUBeerStudent, apaisncsu (probable), flipdog0 (probable), and Bryanole (also a maybe) are coming. Of course, anyone is welcome to come join in the festivities! I have enough snifters and other assorted glassware to serve about 15 or so people.

    If you have any questions or anything, just let me know.

    Cheers

  3. I'm really going to try and make it guys, but it will be the first weekend in 4 straight weeks my girl and I will actually be home...so it will be hard to leave again.

    Brewvival, friend's wedding in Ft Lauderdale the next weekend, Hunahpu Day the next weekend.

  16. I tried hunting you guys down on the FB as well and could not find the page. We def gotta make sure Bryan attends so we can repay him for all of the CCB beers (especially Leon).

Will try to bring back some of Dat shyt for the B'day/St. Patty's throw down. May also be able to trade some fine NC brews for ????. I'll keep ya updated on my plans for Brewvival. Cheers !!

  22. If anyone on this thread can get me an extra bottle of Hunahpu (Ill gladly pay for it), thatd be great. I wanna have one on my actual birthday
     
  23. If everything goes as planned I might be able to take care of that.
     
  24. Should have some good Portlandia stuff, though I'll let it be a surprise. I'll bring my KH for sure and maybe we'll finally drink that 07 WWS I keep bringing.

  27. The KH will probably be the beer that gets me there:) Of course I'll have some CCB goodies, as well as a HF and some Lawsons.

    I'll only have the stuff that's available 2 days before the party.
     
  31. OK so after talking with Alex, John, and Steve last night, we came to a conclusion. In order to keep this thing within the realm of possibility, were capping it at 3 bombers or 6 12 oz bottles per person. We want to still be able to taste and enjoy every bottle.

    The preliminary list so far is:
    King Henry
    RR Damnation Batch 23
    BA Blackout
    Lavery Rye Stout
    Lavery Liopard Oir
    Im almost sure a Hunahpu will pop up with how close it is to the release AND the number of people going
    Some Hill Farmstead DIPA
     
  32. Good call on the cap...I need to make it to work on Monday:)
     
  33. Caps are for pussys .lol

  34. Can someone confirm a 2013 Hunahpu? Will we have one for sure?
     
  35. 22 oz 2012 Surly Darkness
    22 oz FFF Moloko
    22 oz 2012 BANE (for comparison to KH of course)
    12 oz 2013 Peruvian Morning (extra)

    ***extras are encouraged just as in trading, right!?***

  36. I'll bring some "extras" as well as they are smaller bottles and will give us a choice as to what we want to open.

    Well, the candidates are you and Daniel (danoeltico), who are going to Huna day, or Tim's friend who is supposed to try and ship him one before Sunday.
     
  39. add Black Note to this list
