    Not sure how/why I missed this thread. Probably can't make it, but I'll hope everyone has fun!

    It might be a little late to be mentioning this, but I'd love to try Sexual Chocolate.

    Am I too late for this? Plans changed and I should be able to attend if there's still space.

    Do we have a list of what people are bringing? I don't want to duplicate what people are bringing.

    Yeah, neither do I. Here's my final list. If a bunch of people have already had a certain beer or two, I can switch them out with something else:

    Brooklyn Black Ops
    Flossmoor Hi-Fi Rye (not the barrel aged version, unfortunately)
    Voodoo Big Black Voodoo Daddy
    Weyerbacher Riserva
    Captain Lawrence Barrel Select #1

    I doubt that there's an exact limit for attendees. It sounds like it's just however many we can fit in the room, and one more person doesn't take up much space, so I'm sure it's fine.

    But correct me if I'm wrong, Kolby.

    Cellar noob bringing noob beers:

    CCB Moat Water
    CCB Batch 69
    BCBS or BCBCS 12 (if enough attendees haven't had either and are still craving)
    Nightstalker if anyone's feeling like taking a chance on an infected bottle that I haven't confirmed one way or another

    Not wrong at all. The area I have set aside is right about 25 people (based on BM's and the thread I'm guessing +/-20ppl). Planning on more standing room than sitting so one more is no issue at all Drumrboy22. The only thing I ask is that we collectively take care of the server who will be taking care of the group. My guess is that they will be doing mostly water refills and cleaning up after us so kicking them a few bucks would go a long way. I am at Slattery's all day and being a relatively slow shift I can answer any questions quickly via BM or the thread today.
    The address is:

    Slattery's Irish Pub
    5364 Greenwood Plaza Blvd
    Greenwood Village CO 80111
    303.741.2115

    We are just southwest of the intersection of I-25 and Belleview in the Landmark Development. I'm really looking forward to seeing everyone tonight!

    All the best,
    Kolby

    I'm assuming since it's a bar the glassware is taken care of?

    Thought I would also bring
    CCB Cucumber Saison
    Weyerbacher Rapture
    Captain Lawrence Barrel Select Mother Barrel
    Plus something else just need to look

    These are all solid beers, and the only one I've tried is the standard BCBS, so I wouldn't call them noob beers at all :)

    I second the noobness, bringing Allagash Confluence, Dark Lord and Surly Darkness. Hopefully not everyone has had those, can't imagine they were unenjoyable though if ya did :D

    I'm planning to come with drumrboy22, I'll raid the cellar in a bit for some beers to bring, I am thinking I will bring a bottle of Bristols Venetucci Pumpkin and a few other rare CO beers or non CO beers.

    I'll either bring a Midnight Sun Beserker or The Bruery White Chocolate as my other bottle. Any preference?

    With all the delicious beers I've tried over the years, I've never gotten the opportunity to have Dark Lord or Darkness. Sounds like this will be an excellent tasting.

    I'm thinking I'll give a go at attending. Would these qualify me?

    Anchorage Love Buzz Batch 1 & Batch 2 (Batch 2 had primary fermentation in oak, so good side-by-side)
    Clown Shoes Blaecorn Unidragon Imperial Stout 2/2012
    ...and how about some Uncle Jacob's? I could also sub in a 3-year vertical of Czar ('08, '09, '10) and if anyone has the '11 and '12 we could bump it to 5 years.

    Alright, per requests I'll bring Sexual Chocolate and a 2010 Ivan the Terrible. I'll also bring along Belgian Red in case we get sick of stouts.

    I've got Barrel Aged Sexy Chocolate from this year and could do that, also. I'm also in the market for a ride down from anyone near downtown or coming from the north end.

    Yeah, I mapped it out already, but I'm looking at an hour and a half both ways by bus/light rail. Definitely not ideal. Anybody with a spacious trunk?

    Also coming down from Boulder, but I think we have a full car. Right now our list is something along the lines of:

    Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout '10
    Short's Woodmaster
    Schlafly Pumpkin
    Jolly Pumpkin La Roja
    Victory Dark Intrigue
    Avery Odio Equum

    and probably a couple more (haven't heard from a couple people yet).

    Looks like I have a couple options for getting down there, but nothing coming back. I'm halfway there. Might just cab it then.
