    I dunno how many more Chicago goodies we could use, unless you're getting a Rare/Vanilla/Galactic Daisy.

    Those are probably acceptable as palate cleansers.

    Hey Guys,
    Was reading your post and was wondering if there was still room for 1 or 2 more?
    It looks like I met a few of you at the BASC, ORF, and/or the most recent SC release.
    If anyone saw the pic on Foothills twitter page from that morning that was our table.

    Anyways, let me know as me and my buddy would definitely like to swing by and say hi for a couple hrs and share some beers.
    I should have a box by then with some west coast goodies and we usually have a fair supply of RR.

    Cheers!

    I'd really like to come up from Charlotte for this. So many things I'm lusting after on this list, and it would be refreshing to surround myself with people who enjoy fine brews as much as I do.
    I took the day off work already with the intent to go to the Duckworth's Cask Festival, but I'd much prefer to attend this event! Unfortunately, most of my cellar beers are more recent acquisitions, I'd say the highlights would be the SN BA Bigfoot (x6 stored), Blend 1 (2011) Jolly Pumpkin La Roja, DFH 120 Minute IPA (bottled in May 2007), & Cigar City Ghost Stories (I am but a Padawan amongst Jedis here). I'm considering a trip up to Hardywood in the next couple days to grab some Bourbon Sidamo as well.

    Well, I've been a beer nerd for a long time, but I stopped drinking entirely for a few years, and just got back into things within the past year. So much has changed!

    We made it a private event on FB. It says 1230 on there, and I think that sounds good. Disclizard, message me or OP for more info!

    What would you guys like me to bring out of what I've listed?? I was thinking BA Bigfoot, and CCB Ghost Stories, but the third bomber is a wildcard at this point... I'll defer to you guys as to what you'd like me to bring... The 2007 120 Minute IPA is begging to get opened and is likely as boozy at this point as anything we'd be tasting. If it followed the trend of the 2007 Burton Baton I recently had, then it will be a big Barleywine flavor by now.

    Edit to add bottles: 2013 Sexual Chocolate, 2013 La Folie, 2010 Burton Baton, 2012 Bigfoot, Great Lakes BA Siren Noire, & Mikkeller Beer Geek Breakfast. Additionally, I can get growlers of NoDa, Triple C, or Birdsong beers as requested. Unfortunately I don't think BA Up All Night has been released yet.
    None of my bottles are off limits, let me know what you guys would prefer.

    Okay gentleman after a good night drinking over the weekend and some careful persuasion from myself and apaisncsu I think we finally convinced my girl that there could be absolutely nothing more important than going to a Sunday bottle share/birthday celebration. That is assuming there is still room? If so hit me up with the list so I can see what I should bring.

    OK I think Im capping the event at the current set of people. Its getting almost too big, but you can never have too many walez right?

    A couple things to think about as were inching closer:

    1) I have alot of glassware to use, but I wouldnt mind if you brought your own.
    2) There are too many people for every person to have every beer on the list. I know Im passing on things like Black Note and BB4D so that people who havent had it can enjoy it. I know everyone will want pours of things like the Huna vertical and KH, so well just kind of see how that goes when the time comes.
    3) If you bring a bottle, theres a really good chance its getting drank.

    And lastly, I know Adam (bluecane) will bring Wheat Thins for himself, but I dont have a ton of food. Last time we had to order pizza, so well have to arrange some kind of food!

    I set the time for 1230 so everyone has a slightly higher chance of making it to work Monday morning!

    Let me know if you need help getting directions to my place. The address is on the facebook event, but if you havent added in to that yet its 5639 Old Chapel Hill Rd Apt 408 Durham, NC 27707.

    Also my phone number is 419 561 0692, just call or text if you need help.

    Cant wait to see yall sunday! Cheers, mates.

    Anyone have a spare pitcher for water? Might be a good idea to have one...or two, rather than having everyone try to cross to the sink/bring water bottles.
