    Just gauging interest at this point but am wanting to host a bottle share/tasting at our place in Old Town. I don't have anything incredibly rare but will need help making all of this beer disappear. Anyone up for that?

    At most I would like people to bring 1 bottle, seeing as the purpose of this is to deplete the beer I have on hand. I can also post a list of bottles I have, if there is interest.

    Good to see some interest. Any particular likes or dislikes so I can start pulling stuff and preparing?

    I could probably swing this, depending on when you're talking about. If I do come I'd like to bring more than 1 bottle...

    Not necessary, but if you'd like to bring more you can. I'm thinking 6-9 PM or something similar on either a Friday or Saturday. I work evenings just about every other day. Definitely wiggle room depending on people's schedule conflicts.

    I'll compile a list of what I have, and post it.

    I can't do this Sat, but don't let that stop you if it works best for the rest of the folks.

    I am also into sours and stouts. Any Saturday night would work well for me.

    The 15th could work. I do work the next day (work once every 2 months on a weekend) but I'm sure I could pull it off

    Dec. 15th from 6PM-9PM

    The lady said she is up for making some snack type things now that she finished up her vet boards.

    Bring whatever beer you'd like and/or food, up to you guys.

    I'll start a conversation with all that are interested.

    Damn it I missed this thread. To whomever if you can get me on some sort of list for the next bottle share... I have a regular Alpine trader I deal with, I can always bring that to the table! I just moved here from Texas and left all my beer tasting buddies behind, I need new ones!

    Great keep me posted, I can give you an email too if you have a list to send out. As I said before I have a damn good Alpine connection and hookups back in TX as well.
