LOL. I meant the 1 bottle.
I'll throw in but I'm not sure what yet. I'll know better as we get closer to Friday.
Added some bottles to the spreadsheet. Not set in stone, may add more or swap some out depending what shows up on my doorstep today. Need to dig around and try to find a large format gueuze to bring.
I'll add later but I'll probably bring a bottle of Cantillon, a bottle of Fantome and a 32oz growler of CCB Café Americana.
I saw the aftermath of the Atrial Rubicite bottle share and decided I want to participate in one of these. What time is this tomorrow and is there a minimum of what one should bring? etc etc obviously new
11am and just bring what you want/can. If you have no beer, we would love some Stanley's Pizza. Also it's common to bring your own tasting glass.
I have a bunch of glassware that I don't really want anymore, mostly stuff that aren't snifters/tulips. So if anyone wants some free glassware I'll probably have a box sitting at the end of a table.
Looks like I'll be able to make it back out there finally. Look forward to meeting y'all! Just updated the spreadsheet.
20 minutes in, #bottleshareofone
Lol. JK staff finishing prep.
I'm early because cuz two awesome BAs gave me a ride again!
My fiance and I will be there at noon. But I won't be participating in the bottle share, I didn't bring anything. I'll just grab my glass and taste and go probably.
Getting in mah car now.
Check the spreadsheet
nsheehan, you didn't have to do that...i applaud your generosity
Had to downgrade someone from 2 to 1.,otherwise tried to help everyone a bit.
Will probably use proxies to distro glasses.
Your an awesome BA! What do the official Zwanze glasses look like?
You sir, are a gentleman and a scholar. Send me a bm and we'll work something out.
Thank you so much! Shoot me a message when you get back and we'll work out the details.
Thanks a ton! BM me and we will arrange the pickup. Enjoy the rest of the day out there!
Added my name to the glass tab. Was on a plane earlier and couldnt add.
Hi, can't photo from my phone. The cantillon glass is pretty cool, came in 4 or 6 oz and I grabbed 6 oz. Not super special but the twi glases look great together.
I can whore some more if its not sold out. Check google in a few minute.
Remember sharing is Caring.
Didn't realize the Cantillon glass was 6 oz. that would be perfect for bottle shares. I'm going to update the google spreadsheet to ask for one of those as well, if someone could grab me one.
Can probably cover you, I Houston hoarded glasses for fellow BAs. Bm me please, will have to get proxies or do boxes.
Thanks! Sent you a message.
Message sent as well.
I had a great time and it was nice meeting you all that I had not met before. I'm sorry I didn't have anything to contribute to the share. I didn't know the tapping was at 2 and didn't originally plan on staying past buying merch and tasting my Zwanze sample. Next time I'll try to make up for it!
This is one of them. They had a 4 and 6 oz. Same on glass design. The only difference was that the 6oz flared out just a bit. The JK official one was way better IMO.
I agree, good seeing you two!
This is the 4oz one that is wider.
Just typed up my thoughts on the event so I can re-visit such a fantastic day! If anyone wants to read my thoughts, it's 1300 words of awesome. I was going to post stuff here, but the only things that needs to be said are:
1. JK is awesome as always
2. BAs and other beer lovers are awesome
3. two BAs in particular are awesome to drive me there and back and are getting f'ed in the face w/ beer (we'll see what I can do).
I will get back to people I tried helping out tmrw, bed time now; I was out there for almost 11 hours, and had a great time! Also, I'll try to get pictures up tomorrow.
All I know is I feel bad for anyone that didn't win the Zwanze lotto and didn't come as a result. I didn't win, but I ended up getting at least 2 glasses of the beer from random people willing to share (or who got multiple glasses). Nice event all around... great job on merch as usual (including both official Cantillon & Jester King versions of both glasses and shirts), a fantastic bottle share, and as usual a nicely organized event.
Next year, hopefully Texas will allow us to PAY for some Cantillon so there can be multiple special taps. Shut up and take my money!
I had a blast. I didn't go crazy this time trying to taste every bottle and actually enjoyed the slower pace I took this time. Thanks for sharing all the bottles everyone! Also thanks to everyone who took my free glassware. I know I missed a ton of bottles all of the growlers but here's some pics I took towards the end:
Not pictured were any of my bottles: Cantillon Iris (2011), Fantome Printemps, and CCB Cafe Americana - which was probably my favorite followed by Oude Tart w/Cherries.
Also, a 32oz growler from Growler's in Houston went missing that belongs to Lindsey. If anyone accidentally went home without let one of us know so we can arrange to get it back.
If anyone from Houston is going today (sunday) and wants to grab me one extra glass, I grabbed one too few for the people I promised. if not, no biggie. Posted in Spreadsheet.
Awesome bottle share looking forward to future events.
Pictures from the day to complement Alex's
How was the Wild Bear? I have one left.
Horrible, IMHO. Really has fallen off the deep end of the last 2 times I've had it (twice in the last 2 months in bottle) compared to a year ago. Oxidized and buttery.
I guess I don't mind diacetyl.
It was also flat. Wax didn't seem to help much.
