    Just wanted to say thanks to everyone who made it to Kevin's tasting room for the bottle share/tasting last night. I thought it was an overwhelming success and an absolute blast. We hope to do it again so if your in Lexington drop me a note and ill keep you in the loop.

    The tasting featured about ten brews but the big ones were:

    Heady Topper
    BCBS Coffee
    St Bernardus Abt 12
    Goose Island King Henry Barleywine. Which was my favorite!

    Wish I could have made it. I had a Parabola set aside! I did drink a Heady out of the can when I finally got off work. Hopefully I can make it next time, sometime soon?

    I'm sorry I couldn't make it. But next time for sure. I have a ton of beers I'd love to share, none available in KY. My favorite thing to do is share beer.

    I had a great time hosting everyone. Thanks to TheBeerAlmanac, BarCzar and Nolen12 for sharing such great beers. And a special thanks to KYGunner for his beers and for getting us all together. We discussed maybe getting together every 3 months or so. If any other BA's want to participate, then let us know. DrFabulous, SplitGrin, BradfordJohnson- we're sorry that you couldn't make it this round but we'll have to get you next time.

    By the way, my top three were:
    King Henry
    Heady Topper
    Fantome Extra Sour

    If anybody is up for a bottle share in the near future, maybe we can figure one out.

    We discussed doing one every three months or so. If that holds true then next month we'll get into another tasting. KYGunner did a good job of organizing that tasting, maybe he can help out with another. I'm happy to host the tasting much like I did in January.

    I might be interested in participating. I'm out west in Seattle about every month so I could most likely contribute some bottles.

    Also, at some to be determined date in the near future, I will be heading up North to take an aimless brewery stroll around Lake Michigan. I'm sure there will be bottles a plenty.

    I would have really loved to have made it. I'm kind of lonely down here in Southern Ky. It is really tough for me to get two days off in a row to get up there to hang out with you all. It will happen though. I have been working hard on growing the craft beer scene down here. It is coming along slowly but nicely. I can't wait to meet you all.
