Ok, this has been long overdue. Official thread for the upcoming tasting at From the Vine. So far the main detail to work out is the time. I still vote for something earlier in the day (1pm or so start time) but one or two people have expressed interest in something in the evening. Jaimie said she's fine with us staying until closing if necessary, so we can work something later in the day if that is preferable for the majority. A compromise might be to start around 3ish - that way it isn't so late in the day but will run late enough that someone arriving at 5 would still be welcome to join in the fun. To make it simple I added a poll, and you can select multiple options if your availability is wide open. We'll then choose one of the top ranking times to start. I didn't include anything after 5 because frankly the tastings tend to run 3-4 hours easy (if not longer) anyways. ______________________________________ Other Details No format, bring what you want! Feel free to post what you're bringing if you would prefer to avoid duplicates. Homebrew is not only welcome, but encouraged! Please be courteous while in attendance, this is a working business so we want to be mindful of the store property as well as the customers that come in and out. Bring your own glassware, no guarantee that there will be available glasses if you don't. Bring a snack if you plan on staying the whole time - you don't have to bring enough to share if you don't want to, but that would be appreciated. When you leave make sure your mess is cleaned up. Bring a cooler if you like, but one of the nice things about doing this in a bottle shop is that we will be able to use the in-store cooler in the back to keep our beer cold. Things needed: Tables. I can provide a single long card table, but one or two more would be needed to accommodate everyone. (Jaimie's normal tables will not be in the store that day.) Chairs. I can also provide approx. 4 chairs, but we'll need another 8-12 depending how many express intent to show. ______________________ That's about it. These things are generally fairly laid back and informal, so come and go as you please. Bring whatever is available - homebrew, off-the-shelf locals, or your recent trade rarities. It would be polite if everyone made a purchase while we were there to support/thank the business that let us use their space, but this isn't required. Main thing, again, is to keep everything clean and in order when we depart. If you have questions feel free to post/msg me or also Jaimie at From the Vine (cabgoddess).
