    Josh, if any of the other offers fall through, I could swing by and pick you up as well since I'll by heading south from Crooked Stave shortly.

    After the tasting I'll be going south back to the Springs though, so the return would be more tricky....

    I think I will make it for a bit at least! Here's what I can bring:

    Captain lawrence Smoked Porter
    Captain Lawrence Xtra Gold
    Midnight Sun TREAT
    Southampton Grand Cru

    I should be there around 6:30. Just ask for the beer tasting area I assume?

    Some amazing beers at Slats last night. Thanks again Kolby! Anyone happen to have a comprehensive list of all the beers there or know the best way to start a list?

    Thanks everyone for a great night! I am always blown away by the generousity and friendliness of the Denver beer community, last night was an excellent example of this. We really will have to do this again.

    Cheers,

    Maybe someone with photos could post them and we could do some detective work. That line up was unreal.

    Big thanks to Kolby for making this happen. I had a blast and appreciate everyone's generosity. We should definitely do this again.

    I forgot that there were also some Tyranena beers there, such as The Devil Made Me Do It, but I'm not sure if that one got opened or if it was a different one from them.
     
  21. skycracksopen

    skycracksopen Jul 12, 2012 Colorado

    I liked it quite a bit, and I would definitely drink it again, but with so much great stuff there, it wasn't one of my favorites of the night.

    If anyone's got a pic or two of most of what was provided, I wouldn't mind seeing them...Dave?

    skycracksopen Jul 12, 2012 Colorado

    Sure, no problem. It looks like some of the bottles were already gone by the time I took these, and a lot of the labels weren't facing the camera, but it's the best I've got!

    Looks like there was also some Jolly Pumpkin La Roja, I had accidentally left that off my list because I've had it before.

    I mentioned having a growler from Trve and was asked by someone if I wanted to get rid of it but can't remember who it was. BM me if you know what I'm talking about.
