    People have been coming into the store a lot lately with a fair amount of anxiety over not having good enough beer to bring. I tell them to relax and have fun. Bring things that 1) they enjoy and 2) people from out of town might be interested in trying. I also say that if people tell them the beer they brought isn't good enough to join they're PUBLIC SHARE then they most likely don't want to hang around with those people anyway.

    It's about having a good time. Plus with the guest taps as crazy as they are going to be, there's already more great beer than one person could get to try anyway.

    My two cents.

    I'm excited to start measuring up the Bruery Reserve Society growler cooler and see what all I can fit in there tonight. Time to set the bottles aside and be done with it before I keep reading these threads and try to bring half my damn cellar.
