    I don't have much in the way of extras for a local. But bring a glass, I've got a Yo So Un Berliner we can pop and drink outside

    Nice meet up. Great to meet some new BAs for sure. Nice little impromptu bottle share also. Denton open container laws are nice. Had a small bottle share in the parking lot. Hope you got the funk and buddhas also!

    Das and Buddha left. Funk gone.

    And holy shit BC is awesome. Was glad to try this close in time to the Bishops Barrel. It showed me better what peoples expectations are for this style beer and why BB was considered a little thin, but also IMO it shows just how close Bishops is to a standard bearer in the category. Obviously the boutique brewers of this style and the variations of BC go steps beyond the base Bourbon County but it was a treat to try and I can't thank you enough for the opportunity to try it and the Kriek.

    Hopefully we get a chance to pop more bottles sooner rather than later.

    FW Peeps:

    Cask of Rahr Angry Santa at Brewed tonight. (I'll be there for a pint or two)

    Tommorow night is FW Saucer's Vertical Epic night. I think 3.3.3 and 6.6.6 - 12.12.12 with a couple other fun Stone taps. Serving everything in 10oz pours is what I'm told (no flights), no word on prices though. (I'll be there for a couple pints as well) + Funk Metal landed there so it should be headed to all stores today.

    Possibly. I was a somewhat tall guy with a couple other guys...around noon. I was picking up some six packs to take home to MS this weekend for sharing with the family. What'd you end up buying? I'm gonna open the Gangis Pecan in MS, too.

    Just thought I would pass along, I saw JK Funk Metal at Spec's Dallas, they still had plenty of Gotlandsdricka as well. They also had many of the new Clown Shoes beers as well. Didn't see Funk Metal at Total Wine Dallas.

    It almost has to be on a Sunday or Tuesday because those are the slowest days for bars. Addison saucer hosted in the past on a Sunday and we started at 11am. The Bottle Shop was thrown out as a spot but it's too small to have 30+ people which is what we had last time. I am working on a new place this time and I should have an answer by Wednesday. I'll post a new thread when I know something for sure.

    Ops at CM Fort Worth + 2+ cases of Funk on the floor. I was a good boy and only bought one...if only because they are over $20 a piece.
