    Anybody have any extra of BA Hellfighter, Fra Gee Lay, or any Yule Shoot Your Eye Out they would want to get rid of. Obviously I dont get Karbach in Dallas and want to try them and I will be in San Antonio on Fri and Austin on Saturday and Sunday....

    The party is from noon to 5pm. I know Stanley's will be selling bottles to go during the party, but I'm pretty sure they'll be able to sell bottles starting around 11am.

    All the beer will be coming from Stanley's. There will be multiple beer lines from the actual restaurant itself and a 24 foot table in the barn with multiple beer lines. The bottles to go will be a separate table.

    Just booked hotel at the Omni in Southpark (Priceline at $60 a night for anyone interested)

    Aiming for 10:30-11 arrival. What's the spot to hit up on Friday night?

    I plan to be at the share. First one ever, looking forward to it. Will be coming in from the DFW area as well. Expecting greatness, but also hoping to be successful in partaking in the share and anniversary responsibly. (read: actually wanting to use my beer tickets)

    Thanks for the heads up with Priceline and the Omni. Go for the $55 bid if anyone else needs a cheap 4* room!

    For bottles to go sale, we're sending Stanley's:

    Boxer's Revenge
    Black Metal
    Commercial Suicide
    Das Wunderkind
    Funk Metal
    Le Petit Prince
    Noble King
    RU55

    Unfortunately, we haven't received label approval for El Cedro yet.

    For anyone that's going I would love to work something out for the glass they are providing at the event. Not sure if they are selling extras or not, but either way, I'm willing to trade beer, other glassware, or a combination. Let me know.

    Stanley's didn't tell me they planned to do bottle limits. I don't think they're planning to. They purchased enough bottles from us so that they hopefully won't run out of anything.

    Jesus I wish I'd gotten a ticket... :(

    If someone grabs me a Boxer's Revenge, RU-55, and maybe that 2nd anniversary glass, I'll make it worth your while. BM me if you wanna work something out.

    I'm up for a few in person trades if anyone has extra Abyss '12 or BA Hellfighter. Have an Oude Tart and Rye BA Smoking Wood to offer if anyone is interested.

    I hope nobody minds, but I'm going to bring my brother with me tomorrow to the tasting. He's not on BA, but he's into craft beer, although needs some more exposure to the better stuff out there. To offset the extra person, I'll bring a few more bottles.

    See y'all tomorrow!
