    If we can bring in food there might be a number of places from FW I can bring grub from. Hot Damn Tamales comes to mind

    They do. Four or five local places. Can't remember which ones exactly off the top of my head, but they offered a fairly decent variety.

    I'm in. Will need a study break.

    Bringing Pipeworks Blood of the Unicorn and Goose Island Night Stalker. Depending on how frisky I'm feeling, I may bring one more. *oOoOhHh suspense!*

    Adding a Riserva '10...kind of a standard sour but I expect at least a few people haven't had it yet.

    I am thinking Goose Island Big John and the Bruery Oude Tart. It looks like there will be some great stuff there can't wait.

    Blood of the Unicorn is a freaking awesome beer! On of the best (if not the best) Imperial Reds I've ever had.

    Damn, I was going to bring Oude Tart. For now I'll be bringing Berserker, Twilight of the Idols, and... The Covey C&C Jacks Barleywine (I figure what a better way to share it than will DFW folk). I'll add more once I figure it out.

    You happen to be going to Community's tour the day before?

    Hey everybody! I'm new to beer advocate, but I've got some things from a recent trip to Indiana that I've been wanting to share with people who'd appreciate it! A co-worker told me about the tasting, and I'm really looking forward to it. Got some Founder's Breakfast Stout and Bourbon County!

    I wish I had the chance to try the '10 fresh, As I understand its tartness has decreased quite a bit over the past few years. I drank a '09 recently that had tons of funk but a little cardboard flavor....not sure the '10's are going to hold up much longer (save for the higher than normal acid levels) but the singularity of the raspberry tartness while lacking depth is very nice

    Adding Fantome Pissenlit in place of the Oude Tart.

    I'm going to add a nice stout on top of whatever else I am bringing. Does anyone have an order of preference of these 3.
    Oil of Aphrodite
    Event Horizon
    BA Blackout

    1-Oil
    2-BA Blackout
    3-EH

    Never had any of them but first glance of reviews the Oil sounds delish

    jsboots21 Jan 19, 2009 Tennessee

    Oil for me, too. Been really wanting to try Jackie O's!

    Food options for Sunday...

    Meridian Room - http://www.themeridianroom.com/menu.html Literally walking distance, they share a corner of the building with Craft & Growler

    Pizza Lounge - http://www.pizzaloungedallas.com/ Also walking distance, right around the corner.

    Scooter Boogie - http://scooterboogie.com/ Will deliver to Craft & Growler for a $5 fee from several restaurants in the area. One of my favorites from them that they apparently deliver for free right now is Deep Sushi. I have never used this service so you may want to call for more details.




    Depending on how things go I may drive 3 miles north to http://dalatdallas.com/Menu.html . Their Pho and Spring Rolls are really great. Let me know if that interests anyone, perfect after drinking food in my opinion.

    I vote for Bligh's as well. But they would be real nice to do side by side ha. Matt is loco, does this place know what is going to happen on the 20th, I mean do they have any idea what sort of storm is coming their way???

    I told them about an hour ago it's going to be 30ish beer nerds nerding their place up. They seemed excited... I forgot to mention a crazy Rouge Dead Guy drinkin' Austinite, by the way of Houston, was joining the fray though. Oops.

    Man, you guys have me wanting to go up there. Unfortunately I have a long lost friend in town.

    Sounds like a blast!

    Due to the nature of how they do business, I doubt they have any crazy shit though. They mainly rotate around local/in-state seasonals and sessionable stuff for growlering. Unless they have like Lagunitas Sucks, then bring it on.

    Maybe heavily leaning towards yes for me now. Turns out I do have MLK off but just seeing if there's any conflict with other plans and if someone would give me a ride.

    This year's 120 Min is supposed to be good so I'll throw that into the mix. I can't handle drinking more than an oz of the stuff anyway, so I'm sure there's enough for people to share.

    I would, but he's already travelling from Austin and is only a casual beer guy.

    I'm starting to get really excited about this. There is already like 40 unique beers mentioned in this thread, and 21 local(ish) BAs expected to be in attendance.

    I'll have some Terrapin Oaked Big Hoppy Monster to add to the others I'm planning on bringing.
