    headed to a beer release this Friday nice and early to get in line, what is the verdict on bottle shares, how do you promote them, i have participated in a few by accident but never really started one of my own. let me know what your thoughts are does it depend on the beer being released, do you stick with like styles etc.

    You bring a bottle and share. Others follow suit. Drunkenness to ensue.

    Make sure to ask the brewery for permission. Most are totally cool with it but it should only happen with their blessings. After that just post that you want to start a share.

    Have fun!!

    have you ever been scared to mention the share in fear that more people will know about the release especially if it is a super limited release?

    Like others have said. Ask the brewery 1st. They might not allow it or have the license for it.
    However, if they do. Post on FB, BA, RB, Twitter & Instagram and then untappd it. People will bring beer and share it. Make sure to bring a glass. No red solo cups!

    Cheers!
