    Won't be able to make it because we will be visiting the Russian River Brewery to grab 2L bottles for our wedding toast :) (Sorry to brag)

    Will there still be a normal March tasting?

    Trading for a bottle of Noble Rot which should hopefully be in by the tasting day. Dogfish Head's weird stuff in big bottles is good to bottle share just in case it is not that drinkable.

    It's also good to share a bottle that you would gladly crush by yourself because it's that good. Just saying.

    So the second Sunday of every month there is a tasting? Is there rules to what everyone brings, sorry new to everything normally just horde my good beer to myself, now into sharing lol.

    Yep the tasting goes on that day every month. I am no expert and there are no formal requirements, but people just bring either stuff they traded for or traveled around to buy. If you bring amazing stuff you will make friends, but everyone is chill and just likes to share beer with cool beer nerds. You can also bring aged stuff from the cellar if it is something that gets distribution and stuff that gets distributed but it is rare and desirable I am sure no one will mind having it again. I have a surplus of hoppy beers right now so I will probably bring some great ones that I traded for to share, but it is all subject to change. Hope to see you there!

    I cant believe I haven't been to this yet. Its like a playground for big kids lol, do they post where and what time on here every month?

    wsnich Apr 26, 2010 Texas

    Eh there are, what I'd consider, a few formal requirements. You must bring something that is not offered on tap at the establishment and you should order something from the bar, and tip generously for allowing us to use their place so often. Though Show can jump in if I misspoke.

    Always at Gman unless we do a special tasting like this, and either Show or I will post the reminder the week before (though I have been working so much lately Show has been taking over).

    Never been to one of these, but have thought about it. I just received a tart in a BIF, and was interested in playing in the sand box. I may just make it out to this one.
