    I dropped the ball on that one. I thought @TastyDelicousness was the one who had not had Wulver.

    Thanks guys for visiting our great city and sharing some great beers! I had a blast and can't wait for next years fun! Great to meet all of you, everyone was friendly even though your choice in hockey teams to cheer for could be better :stuck_out_tongue:

    Connecting rooms at a Motel 6. Think of the possibilities.

    Also...who was the person that had the awesome opener connected to a lanyard around their neck that I kept gushing about?
    I remember seeing Moda on the opener but can't find that thing online anywhere

    Thanks for posting the pics. Looks like a great time was had by all. Nice to see MM representing for the locals with both Griffins and Red Wings gear.

    Really hope I can make the 2016 event.

    Hey, if we all chipped in and rented out the Centennial Room at Founders, I wonder if they'd let us just camp out there with sleeping bags overnight? :grinning:

    I couldn't go last year because I got sick at the last minute. I added one more to my Bug Hugs vert. I'll bring that.

    Pretty sure I have more Wulver. I'll make sure to bring some and open it at 7:05 again.

    Is this share going down again? Same place? I'll be sure to wear a Black Hawks shirt this time. Can't be the only FIB not representing.

    I don't see why the share wouldn't be happening again. But would need to discuss further details with the other gentleman as well. Stay tuned!

    Afternoon guys -

    We're planning to do something, but it's still in the works. Last year ended up being much bigger than we anticipated and we need to figure out the best way for us to still have something, but keep it manageable & enjoyable.

    Long story short; I'll be in contact with you guys shortly with updates/details.

    Oh, and a few of us got tix, so we'll be up there regardless!

    Cheers,
    Mick

    Got mine. Booked a room at the H.I. Express so hopefully 2016 will be going down in the same area as last year.

    Will be attending this KBS release this year - hotel booked Fri-Sun - could come or stay one more day, if necessary, and if the invite is open. Cheers.

    I'm interested. Going out Friday this year and have Saturday tickets, so Friday night would be ideal for me...not that anyone cares.

    That is one sick cellar! I'll gladly pony up a bunch of good bottles (limited release/BA Nickel Brook, GLB, Bellwood's, etc). Going to be staying at the Riverfront Hotel, but open to meeting up anywhere in the downtown-ish area. ANy preferences for night? Will be in GR Fri-Sun, but cold also manage Thurs, Fri, Sat, or Sun eve get-together.

    My friend brought me a bottle of the Nickel Brook Cuvee 2015. Not sure if that's one I should break open now or save for a special occasion, I'm leaning toward the latter...

    darcyk Initiate (83) Jul 15, 2014 Canada

    My experience with Nickel Brook barrel-aged beers (since 2013)... is that they're balanced and integrated after about a year, post release. Only exception to this would be this year's Kentucky Bastard (regular & coffee versions) that are 12% (versus 10% last year) and noticeably caramelized & reductive/oxidized tasting already. That Cuvee 2015 should be delicious and balanced around next Thanksgiving or Christmas. That's my $0.02. :slight_smile:

    Anyone interested in an informal bottle share? Or a pub crawl Friday or Saturday night?
