    If the Herm ever did a reuben 'dilla, it'd be game over for the food at Chinatown.

    I, too, just signed up for this glorious membership! I'm not a huge fan of sours though. Prior members, possible to just end up with their stouts for the 6 releases?

    The releases are chosen by them. It's usually a mix of both, but there are a lot more releases than the included bottles and there were definitely more stouts last year than in the past.

    BA Late Night? Just had my last bottle the other night and it was fine. Not super carbed, but on par with most pastries these days.

    What difference does it make? We're going to drink up all the hyped stuff before you show up anyway, just like last year. :wink:

    That wasn’t even the same event, you fool. My parents and I were first in line for the brunch event.

    Fool!

    Oh so no one told you about the "Anna Karina-NOT" share we had in the parking lot across the street right before? It was epic. All your faves.

    Was this the same or different from the ANNA KARI-DON'T share, which was entirely 3C and Horus bottles?

    I assume you have to be a member to be invited to the brunch event? If so, are you able to bring guests? What month did the event occur last year?

    Thanks for the input!
     
  24. annakarina

    annakarina Initiate (181) Jul 29, 2016 California

    Yeah, it's members only but members have the ability to buy one extra ticket.

    Last year I think it was on February 10th. This year it's tomorrow (1/18).

    I haven't gotten a response yet, but I assume there will be vegan options at least. At the anniversary event there was, I couldn't make the brunch last year so dunno what was there. Could always just drink lots and lots of trysterocoffee.

    You were supposed to email them with vegetarian/vegan request. May not be too late.

    Yes, thats what I was referring to about not having gotten a response to, last events they've always sent an OK or whatever email back. Erik slacking

    So who's bringing beers for the share and who's not? Can't decide if I should bring anything or nah.
     
  32. annakarina

    annakarina Initiate (181) Jul 29, 2016 California

    I'm not but also I don't really have anything to bring in the first place.

    sysrq Initiate (10) Nov 9, 2006 California

    With that tap list, I don't think I'm going to be bringing anything. Gonna be way too much as it is.

    After learning from last years brunch. Bottles brought wasn't worth it. There was so much on tap to drink you won't bother with shares unless it's someone hyping to rid of it.

    Thinking the same thing. I had planned to bring a few bottles but seems like a waste with all you can drink on a killer taplist. We'll see how I feel when I wake up tomorrow but likely going to indulge from the house and guest tap list.

    Yeah that was definitely my favorite of the day. BA Griffith CCCC was a close, close second. Best IPA I had all day was Confirmed Goodness. And no, I'm not a HPB homer; those were legit the best beers. Food was delicious, too, btw.

    I guess this makes me a true millennial but I was craving more avocado toast for most of yesterday. The topping was good, but the bread was amazing.
