    Hello friends:

    A group of my beer loving friends and I are looking to start a regular quarterly bottle share in the Fox Valley area. We are happy to host in Neenah.

    Thinking we will make each share about a particular style or region so we can compare and contrast.

    If you have any interest, shoot me a pm:slight_smile:

    Cheers and happy holidays,

    Liza

    I love when new, random tasting groups pop up; fun way to meet like minded beer people.

    Alas, little too far for me (Milwaukee) but good luck to getting a good group of beer people together!

    Cheers!

    Possibly interested, myself +1. We're in West Bend, but a quarterly basis might be manageable.

    The Fox River goes through the western Chicago suburbs, and we call this area the Fox Valley as well. We even have a Fox Valley mall! I'm bummed we cannot make it to your share, but let us know how it goes. Cheers!

    Funny... I had no idea! We make it to IL quite frequently, so if ever a share pops up, shoot me a message.

    I will let you know the first date. It will probably be early March after I return from a work trip to MA and everyone recovers from the holidays...

    If you're ever down in the Milwaukee area always up for trying to throw together an impromptu share or just meeting up at one of the many fine craft beer bars around the city.

    I'll admit that I make up excuses to visit just to chill at the Palm, Draft & Vessel and Burnhearts.

    Never been to D&V but definitely have spent my fair share of time at Palm and Burnhearts; and Sugar Maple.

    I am down. I live in Appleton and would love to do a bottle share sometime. Got plenty to offer up that I don't want to drink by myself lol.

    I have family in Suamico and Depere, so I am in town from Indiana fairly often but never could find a craft beer community there. I guess you can envy me for being 30 minutes from FFF, but you guys get a lot of good stuff up there. Rock on!

    I know a place that would be on board for hosting it. IE the manager. They could set food and tables for it as well. In the neenah area as well. That way all the difficulty of cleaning up is removed. As long as food was purchased they'd probably be cool with it.

    I am interested. I don't have the best to offer at a bottle share, but I've got a couple KBS, BSBS and barrel-aged Central Waters beers....

    We do a bottle share in the Fox Valley (of Illinois) every wednesday. Check the Niche Bottleshare thread in this forum if you thought this was about Geneva/St. Charles/Batavia IL.

    Good news! Think I found a public venue to host us:slight_smile: I am thinking the middle of February or March for our first meet up.

    I just put a FB group together to discuss beer, email me if you want me to add you. This would be an easier avenue to touch base.

    Cheers,

    Liza

    Sorry to get off topic, but I'm always down to grab some beers in Milwaukee! Live on the east side, often visit D&V in Shorewood and Rays in Tosa.
