    I'm game! If it weren't for the dogs, I'd offer up my house for it. Twizzard, are you in? There's gotta be more of us here...

    Nope. No bottle shares in Albany, NY. This definitely didn't happen this weekend.

    I'll admit this was a little crazier than usual and only a handful of the people in attendance were active BAs. Wouldn't mind getting together with some of you guys for a little more low key tasting. Don't mind hosting, either.

    The brats were epic. The trying to shotgun a Heady directly after a couple, now that was a terrible idea.

    I'll put a BM together. No need to spam the Mid-Atlantic forum if this becomes a regular thing.

    On a side note, I'm a couple hours north of Albany, but I'd love to be a part of one of these.

    I just moved to Syracuse and would love to be part of this, especially with the sting if missing the NYC bottle share tomorrow.

    Syracuse is about the half way point to buffalo from Albany. Utica should be like an hour to an hour and a half from Albany. But damn people will sure travel for good beer

    Used to like Troy Pork Store when they were open. Awesome, awesome set-up of beer and food. Is Rolfs in a crappy neighborhood, I might have been there once (and all their beef is gluten free!).

    I'd be up for a bottle share and with enough notice I'd be cool with volunteering my place but I'm in Mechanicville so it's a bit of a drive for those in Albany proper.
