    This was mentioned in the Central Waters party thread but I thought it deserved it's own thread in case people weren't reading the 14 pages of that thread.

    There is a beer event going on as a fundraiser for Mr. Crayne at the Sugar Maple Tavern in Milwaukee, WI on Saturday Feb 2 from 2-6. There will be lots of beers on tap including CW 15 and Bolt Cutter. There will also be a silent auction for some rare bottles of beer. More details located at the facebook page. Please try to attend and support a good beer guy.

    Is there any schedule for when CW 15 might be tapped?

    Not that I've heard. You could try calling the Sugar Maple Tavern to see if they know yet.

    I would be pretty interested in seeing the final settling price for the Rare, 1414 + Fifteen, or for the BCBVS + BCBCS. Especially when the money is for a great cause too, I figured bidding would get up pretty high. When I left a couple hours before the end, I think all of those were at least $100... :)

    I keep telling myself it was for charity

    The 5 sets of CBS/Bolt Cutter went for $75-85 each. 1414/15 went for $115. I lost out on the BCBVS & BCBCS and The Bruery 4-pack and my last bid for each was $90.
