    Since you are representing Austin, and ya'll seem to have some pretty fancy tastings, I don't want to disappoint. I'll bring both.

    We have bottle shares about once a week, up here in Denton. We just dont publicizes because we dont want you Dallasites and Fort Worthians corrupting our simple little town with your fancy beer ideas. Ha!
    Wish I could make it out, but the only bottles I could have contributed (Mission Imperial Stout and Double IPA) are already empty. Keep up the craft beer learning!!

    Hi all! Im brand new to this site and I heard about this event at halls. After reading this, I have to come down and check it out. I'm really excited to be on here and met people who are as enthusiastic about beer as I am. I was thinkin of bringing a vertical of fullers vintage- 08. 09, 10, and 12, 2 of each (sorry no '11) and then maybe 1 more random bottle. How does that stike yah? Most of my stuff is only from in state, sorry.

    If there are any lurkers out there that want to join the tasting but don't want to show up because they feel they don't have anything "worthy" then BM me and I'll meet up with and GIVE you something to bring. It will stay between us :)

    Again, IMO if you don't have anything out of state or whatever than just bring a good beer available in TX that they don't serve at Craft and Growler but if you really feel that bad about not having something let me know, I don't want anyone to be/feel excluded due to something like that.

    'Preciate the kind words but I think 99% of the BA's on here are genuinely good peeps, we all just have different ways of showing it. Even though alot of us bitch, moan and debate with each other it doesn't mean we woudn't buy or share beer with each other, at least I hope not.

    BTW, I'm offended that you mentioned me in the same "classification" as Matt. Notice there is no wink after that :)

    I can't hear you, there's too much air flying by my ears from your Forrest Gump waves.

    In all fairness I am not even in the same league as guys like Brad, Seth, Chad, Dave, Justin and the countless other BA's who helped me get into this wonderful community. Pay it forward.

    Everybody should be thanked equally - it ain't always easy to move into a new beer market and find people like these. This will be a great event.

    Well that sounds an awful lot like a tasters choice to me.

    Anyone uninitiated to a share I figure I'd suggest running by a World Market and buying a mini snifter as a tasting glass, although the smaller globes like DEBC's work just as well (any of you folk sitting on a bunch of these please remember to bring some extra for those who forget). And please patronize C&G'S with growler fills...our gracious hosts are providing something few businesses will

    Dude! There's no need for any "upping" when Anna's involved...:)

    *Seriously, though... I've had all 3, and I actually preferred Anna. I'm willing to bet no one will be disappointed with ANY of those three.

    I have yet to be disappointed with a HF beer. Thought both Anna and Vera Mae were great. Haven't had Art....

    Art wins. Praying master Zhukov can Marshal our party but a beer in hand is worth 2 in the bush so CCB goodies might have to wait til later

    This is exactly true. Most of us are in this for not only great beer, but also great people. There is a reason we like to say Beer people are good people.

    I, like cfh64 also help people with beers to bring to bottle shares. It lets more good people attend plus it just means more beers to drink*. ;)

    *I can't ever seem to make my cellar shrink even doing this.

    Looks like I will be able to make it for a little while, my Niners play at 2 so I won't be there the whole time, but want to meet some fellow BAs! I'll be representing my 49ers, so I should be fairly spottable.

    Got name tags and a sharpie. The lady is coming and bringing her bottle of Prairie Noir (I know a majority of people haven't had a chance to try this so having multiple bottles will be great)

    Pumped for this
