    Whoa, nice. I'll be down with a group on Thursday afternoon. We were already planning on stopping by the brewery, but this sounds even better. 7:30? Might see you guys with a few bottles.

    I don't know how some of you do it. Three straight days of tasting with (presumably) some heavy-hitting beers. That's some incredible endurance - cheers to all who go through such a feat. :)

    Sounds good... I have a batch coming out of the barrel tomorrow night that I was planning to have on tap Huna day at our homebrew club booth, however I think it needs to mellow for a few months... So I'm torn. I pulled a sample out last week and took it up to CCB and shared it with a couple of their brewers and they both agreed that it will impove (it's by no means bad, just super hot, it's almost 12% and there's no hiding it lol). I may still donate a couple gallons just for the sake of donating it, and then save the rest. This was intended to be a 10 gallon batch, obviously only 5 made it into the barrel and now I'm down to 3 gallons in a secondary fermenter, I think I might blend the two. If I decide it is worth sharing I'll bring some with me Thursday night if I can get it carbed up in time.

    Alright I will bring some homebrew in along with some other goodies. The girl with the short red hair is my wife and I will be close by. She's a brewer too and can bullshit and * just like one of the boys. See you Thursday night.

    I'm fairly new to BA and wanted to meet some other BA people in person. I will be making my first beer pilgrimage, coming from Atlanta (with some friends who enjoy beer, but aren't as into it as I am), and wanted to know about where to go Friday night. I hear everyone talking about "Pegs", but I can't tell if this is a full event or an event at all (informal meeting?). Also, how early should I line up at CCB to get my allotment of 3 Hunahpus? Like I said, this is my first time. You guys seem to know what's going on. One more thing...is it difficult to get the barrel-aged Hunahpus? I have read there are very very few. Thanks for helping a newbie (still in college and look forward to getting more involved in the BA community).

    Some Facebook info:

    Peg's Cantina & Brew PubFriday will run much like our previous barrel-aged days. CASH only, at the BAR. We're finalizing the taplist today; we'll post the tap list tomorrow. There will be at least 12 different barrel-aged beers tapped, & more Rare & RareR on tap than in the past. More info will come soon.

    Peg's Cantina & Brew PubNo growlers of Rare D.O.S. or RareR D.O.S., but out of this world things have been known to happen at Noon.
