    This lurker will be there tomorrow. Just updated the spreadsheet with my contribution. Anybody have a preference between Toxic Revolution or Moloko? ;)

    is it just me, or is anyone else having some level of questioning oneself, "do i want to participate in the bottle share, when a good part of me would rather just drink atrial, ol oi, and cask el cedro all day and be a super happy individual"?

    guess it'll be a spur of the moment call.

    The Bottle Share on 8/31 was one of the best times I have ever had drinking beer. So many friendly people and lots of great craft beer. I know it was my first major bottle share, but drinking with so many BA's is something I want to do more and more.

    Cheers to everyone at the 8/31 bottle share and Jester King for being a great host and making great beer.

    I was there at 8/31 and everybody I saw at the bottle share (except for like 2 people) were huge fucking douchebags and I am glad I only had my pour of Atrial and Ol Oi. I also got a taste of Mash and Mash & Grind otherwise I am glad to have bought my bottles and the 2 or so ounces I had shared with me.

    Yeah I was in that same boat, but going to be doing stuff with family a lot of the day so my decision to just go for the JK beers was made for me in part. Still pumped for it. And that pizza too

    No Problem man. Let me know if you need a ride before/after any of these events. Keep in mind that I work them so you'll get there early and or stay late.

    Currently working the late shift. Won't be out till 5am Saturday morning which means I won't be in Austin till around 1. No bottle share for me. Drink up fish heads.

    Thank you, Lutter. Will you be there? I don't believe we've met yet. If we did, I forgot, most likely due to beer.

    Maybe... trending towards no. Depends on if I can convince my wife. It'll be the 3rd AR release day I've been to, lol. I was there tonight with Clonies720 & rainerschuhsler.

    Lndsey was there too... I swear I see her more in Austin than anyone else... and she lives in Houston!

    Nice to see everyone and meet new folks. Hard to remember new faces and names during a bottle share, if you know what I mean. I was the big guy in the longhorn shirt who brought the Stillwater Premium, Brainless on Cherries, Orginal Black Metal, and the Saison Rue. If we talked, or not, feel free to hit me up. I'm also @ahaley on twitter.

    Another great share. Thanks to everyone for bringing fantastic beers.Highlights for me were Buffalo Bayou Meer Koebel, Cigar City forgotten island, Trinty's Pappy Legba on cherries, 3F Pig Destroyer (wonderful hops), Alpine Hoppy Birthday, Surly Darkness, GI Juliet and all those damn Bruery beers, good lord!

    A special mention to the Austin Zealots Cuvee de Tomme clone. That was outstanding.

    Thanks again to all!

    La Petite Princesse
    Pappy Legba with Cherries
    Forgotten Island
    Juliet

    and that damn Cuvee de Tomme Clone! MAN! It was great!

    Thanks. I figured that out. I just like the name "Pig Destroyer", though I've never heard the band.

    That clone is amazing! Still have yet to get on the Princesse and it's been up there three times in the last month. Can't wait to sample it. One day.

    I'm thinking of bringing a classic gueuze 750, I don't wanna get too drunk but I wouldn't mind toasting zwanze day with fellow BAs. It is mine and my wife's anniversary so I need to be alive for a date at night.

    I can assure you Classic Cantillon won't get you drunk. It's 5% ABV, iirc. ;)

    Haha yes I have had quite a bit of it, I just mean I'd like to share a bottle or two, probably not stick around for the whole thing.

    Incorrect. One of the stops on my honeymoon was Brussels. I succeeding in getting drunk on Loons. Most of it was cask Fou foune. Needless to say, I had the Sour Butt the following day.
