    Duckworth's Grill & Taphouse invites you to join us for a bottleshare party to benefit somthing we all hold very near and dear. Our prostates!

    In coordination with North Carolina Craft Beer Week we are hosting all of our BeerAdvocate family for an amassment of beer geekdom. Bring in your best out of market/rare beers and share them with all your fellow Craft Beer Lovers.

    100% of proceeds from this bottle share will go towards Prostate Cancer research. Entry fee for this event is $10 per person. This allows you to bring in up to three (3!) out of market/rare beers. This ticket enters you and a friend in a contest to win a nine day European Beer Adventure! Check out the dream trip details here: http://www.beertrips.com/trips/pints-for-prostates.html

    Post what you plan to bring here. I'm heading to funky Buddha this weekend so there is sure to be some of that floating around.
    Starts at 1:00 pm on May 19th. Tickets(donations) will be available at the door.

    We’ll have a very, very limited supply of Founders KBS & Doom available for purchase too! Get here early – only 1 bottle per person.


    Join the Event here!!!

    I am in if I can get back to CLT in time. Will have to see what I have left in my beer cabinet. I am moving at the end of June and have been told they need to be drank by the time we move!

    All of those are very "exotic" to the area, look forward to meeting another new beer lover in the area.
    So unfortunately I came up short at funky Buddha, I'll be stuck with bringing the following

    2011 BA pt5
    2011 BA 4d
    Allagash FV-13
    2011 Black Tuesday

    Plus some others

    I am not from the area but I was wondering if this would be worth a 900+ mile drive? ;)

    Actually I will be in town for the all-star race Saturday :)

    Hi guys! I'm thinking about traveling back to upstate South Carolina to visit the parents and in-laws for about a week, starting tomorrow. If I do, I'm planning on attending the event with my father. I've got a couple questions about the event, though:

    I looked up Duckworth's in Charlotte, and it looks like there are two locations. Will this event be at the Park Road or Conlan Circle location?

    My dad doesn't trade/collect/hoard, so his selection would be limited. Would it be a faux pas for him to show up with underwhelming beers, that are likely in market? I could try to cover the rarity factor for him.

    I'm planning on bring a DD and wanted to see if she could attend for free or at a reduced rate, as she won't be participating in the bottle share, but will be there to ensure responsibility and safety.

    I don't have too much left in the cellar, but I could bring some of the following:

    Jackie O's 2010 Barrel Aged Dark App (first bottling)
    2012 SAVOR Terra Incognita
    2011 McKenzie Saison Vautour
    Boulevard Love Child #1
    Logsdon Seizoen
    New Glarus Raspberry Tart

    Thanks, and I'm hoping to attend and meet some Charlotte-area BAs!

    This event is at the park rd location. Thanks for keeping that in mind and being safe. Your wife and dad are more than welcome to come along. No need for the dd to pay. All proceeds goto pints for prostates! Look forward to seeing you all there!

    Looking forward to meeting the BA crew on Sunday. Sounds like we have some excellent bottles that will be shared.

    Everyone taking part will receive an entry into the Pints for Prostates European Beer Adventure drawing for a 9-night trip for two to Belgium, Holland and Germany!

    Alesmith Horny Devil or Alesmith Grand Cru
    Maybe some home-brewed Rye IPA if folks aren't scared.
