    The fine folks up at Chucks Hop Shop have planned a bottle share for March 13th

    http://chucks85th.com

    Anyone else planning on going? Should be an awesome time!

    We're ideally looking for around 24 people, and we'll split that between two tables (12 to a table) to ensure everyone gets a reasonable pour. Trying for beers outside our distro or vintage stuff. We have 10 RSVP so far, looking pretty fun.

    Is the plan to close early, or are people just gonna be staring at us drinking rare beers? haha

    We are going to reserve the tables in the front so that everyone walking in gets to look at us jealously. People will finally get the chance to drink Chuck's private stash ;)

    I'm sorry to hear that he's going out of business. ;)

    Quite the opposite, he's opening a second location on 20th and Union this year. I assume it's just going to be a glorified storage facility for his ever growing collection :p

    Really?! That's 2 blocks from my house. When will my new home away from home be opening?

    He owns the property now, he just needs to get things set up. He's hoping for April, but I'd say May or June is more likely. He seems to be trying for the same setup as the one in Greenwood with more taps

    That's good news! I really like the neighborhood vibe of his shop. The food trucks are fun too.

    I'm letting Jordan have the day off so he can go. Can't leave them understaffed on a Saturday

    I was going to bring BCBS, but I'm not entirely committed. I'm probably gonna bring a couple different things. I'll wait and see what we have an abundance of and try to mix things up.

    BTW I think chuck is going to drop a bomb on us. Better take the bus or a cab because this is promising to be a seriously drunken event.

    We're going to have to change the name of the event to "Chucks Liver Failure Promotion." People are really bringing out some heavy hitters. If this event is a success I think we will want to do it ever other month. I don't want it to be so frequent that the bottle quality starts to diminish. I'm going to coordinate with Streetzeria so they can check on us a few times for food orders. As always though we encourage people to bring outside snacks.

    They are the only beers I've ever had in my possession where she has become visibly upset when I suggest sharing them with other people. o_O

    We have our 24 spots filled up. Other emails will be put on a back up list in case one of the RSVPs opts out. Looking forward to the event, should be a blast!

    Please continue with the reports until you can no longer type. Some of us have to live vicariously.

    I can only assume that everyone who went to Chuck's bottle share died last night. They will be missed.

    Can't think of a much better way to go out. At least not one I can describe on a beer website.

    The event was very fun. Thanks to Chuck, Jordan, Asheen, and others for hosting.

    I've never had so many amazing beers in one night. The BCBS Cherry Rye was insane.
