    I recently moved to Geneva and haven't been able to attend one of these yet but am looking to in the near future. How does it work exactly? Do we have a room at Niche? Everyone just bring a few bottles to pass around?

    @csmakio - no room, people just grab tables in the bar or sit at the bar. people bring what they want and share with who is there.

    share was great last night.

    What gooner said....also don't be shy as sometimes we don't even know when new people show up.

    Pipeworks dinner tonight at Niche. My bank account is still recovering from Disney World this month. Should be back the 12th. Day after Independence Day is a tough sell next week.

    Have lived in Geneva for about 6 months now, finally made it to Niche last night for dinner. Damn, what an experience. The food was phenomenal and I was pretty taken back by the drink menu. I knew it would be good but the variety is killer. They had some great stuff on tap, the Pipeworks\Niche Elijah's Revival was spectacular. I picked up a bottle of it at the Dojo a few months back and never noticed it was a collab. Pretty damn cool.

    I knew I was going to like Niche but it was right up there with one of the best dining experiences the wife or I have had in recent memory. I'll be making it out to a bottle share soon. That's for damn sure.

    Is there some type of black Wednesday event here? I saw they posted a pic of a bunch of BC cases, but there is no info. Cheers!

    would love verification on this. looking at the comments sounds like its available for in-restaurant consumption starting Wednesday?

    Hijacking this thread, for some reason the Penrose one was closed.

    Stopped in today and had their Passion Fruit Cocktail and Cafe Valencia; both leftovers from their 4th anniversary party.

    Passion Fruit Cocktail was outstanding. Juicy as all hell, looked identical to fresh pineapple juice. The vanilla really shined on the back end and the flavors just kept evolving. Absolutely loved this beer, probably one of the best vanilla fruited pale ales/ipas I've ever had.

    Cafe Valencia was delicious. Really nice amaretto/orange flavor on it. Great bourbon notes and a killer mouthfeel. This was a real treat.

    Living in Geneva I dabble in Penrose now and then but god damn these were two of the best beers I've had from their shop. Hope they keep cranking it out. Really wishing I would have made their anniversary party now.

    Hey all! Huge Niche fan here and my wife and I are heading there tonight for dinner. Whilst there, we’d love to partake in the bottle share if it’s still taking place on a somewhat “weekly” basis. I’ve got some great beers to tote along and wanted to get a feel for the crowd before getting there. Anyone planning on attending tonight? Hope to hear back and see some folks!
