    Greetings fellow BA's of the Kalamazoo area.

    I am looking to put together a monthly tasting group in the area. If you are interested please BM me

    Details:

    - Looking more or less to get a group of no more than 5 individuals looking to spend one day/evening out of the month to test some of the recent limited releases available or unavailable to us here in Michigan
    - I live in a modest apartment so accommodations really only suit said number of individuals
    - participation requires only one or two bottles you managed to snag and would like to share and discuss and in no way requires you to bring fourth anything you want to keep to yourself.
    - for obvious reasons age requirement is 21 but otherwise there is no other age requirements. if that is an issue with you than look elsewhere, if not than you are more than welcome!
    - Time and all other details are still in planning stages so if you are interested in helping in said stages please let me know, two or more brains are often better than one so whatever you can/would like to do to make these events a great time would be appreciated greatly.
    - overall this is in no way a serious study group, snobbery, and/or any event to be taken seriously. This is only meant to meet with local BAs and share good brew and good times!
    - side note: trading of course is welcome between members

    If interested please BM me and we will start working out what day will work best for everyone.

    i'd be in for this depending on the date and would be happy to host too. got some bourbon wizard on tap now that might be fun:slight_smile:, and have too much beer in the cellar. April sucks for me, but may is pretty open right now. friday evenings or saturdays work best probably if we can get something together.

    I would also be in depending on night and time.

    Would it be cool if I brought homebrews as well? (they don't suck)

    I typically have Saturday mornings or Sunday mornings off, or I work later in the day. That would work best for me. I don't handle work well hungover, haha. Does anyone?
