    I recently moved up to Seattle for work. I'm planning to host a little gathering on Sunday(12/2) to just sort of hang out and drink/taste some beers. I live in a small apartment in Issaquah and since I already have some coworkers coming I don't want to get too big of a crowd, but I'd love to meet a few of the local BAs if anyone is available and interested in meeting up with some strangers. I'm not completely sure what to expect from the other guys coming as far as beer they're bringing. I plan on opening this years Black Tuesday and BA Speedway, further then that I'm really not sure, I just like prying caps and pulling corks. So, if you have time on Sunday afternoon and are interested in hanging out send me mail and I'll give you more info!

    I've put together, with Dan (Mages64) an absolutely amazing White Whale tasting. Alan Sprints from HotD, Matt Bonney and Matt Vandenberghe, as well as Gary from Beveridge Place and around 12 awesome BA's are attending. We have collectively put together an absolutely unforgettable tasting. I'm so very excited as its been a lot of work over the last 6 months to do so. We're starting at 2 pm and have no idea when it'll be over.

    Ill post pictures and a write up of the beers we taste after the event is over and my liver is healed.

    I'd love to come to a future tasting though OP. This one wont be possible for me to make unfortunately.

    Cheers,
    Ryan

    Ryan you should ask Alan if he'd be interested at all in having a bottle of Adam Batch 7. My friend has one he isn't interested in drinking. Maybe they could work something out.

    Also, are there going to be dregs sitting around at the end of this tasting too? Cause I'd love to sneak in and go all drunk ninja on those bottles.

    Also Also, I better see some epic whale boobie tassel pictures!

    Brian,

    Ill ask Alan but I'd guess he has some Adam batch 7.

    Dregs will most likely be gone but I'd imagine any leftovers will go to homebrewers.

    There will be epic Whale Boobie Tassle pics for sure!
