    So the wife and I are starting to realize we have more beer than the two of us can drink. I wanted to see if there any tasting groups looking to add two people or if people would want to form one. I'm in Dyer btw.

    Shoot me an email rfraga7@gmail.com and we can set something up. Me and a few other guys occasionally open bottles at beergeeks.

    Anyone ever go to the place Foodies in Dyer? I saw on there sign a few weeks ago: Craft Beer class. Or something like that. I never got there or found out what it was about. Just wondering if they did tastings or anything

    Hey guys, we had a lot of people reply to this which is great. Some of us (everyone before nasty) started a message thread the other day. To try to keep the groups from getting too big, I'd recommend you guys starting a message thread to form another group or two. Hope this helps people connect and we can meet sometime soon - Josh

    Digging up an old thread here. I have too much beer and an apathetic bottle share group. I am looking for some BAs in NWI that like beer and perhaps even drink it. Anybody from this old thread still around?

    I was part of this original tasting group. Group kind of broke apart but I'm down to get some new people in.

    Wait...can we deny "old group" people like we were before? :wink:

    Only kidding, I like decent size groups (10 or so). My buddies and I have found in the past that smaller pours also lead to more pours.

    @nasty31 - Andrew Nashkoff stiffed me in trade. I send 2 x Bar Fly and expected 1 X MoaS and 1 X Dreadnaught in return.

    He had a great trading history according to BA so I had no problem shipping first. He was going to reuse my box to fulfill his end of the trade. He received his box on June 20. He acknowledged receipt on June 27 all the while promising to ship. My last contact with his was July 7 - he was promising to ship. On July 14 he checked in the beer I sent on untappd. I tried to contact him on via untappd with no luck last week.

    Yes, I know I should made the trade official through BA - lesson learned.

    He has not been on BA since July 7 so rather out him to an internet community, I figured I'd out him to people he actually knows in real life. I'm not too worried about the beer or shipping, but I just wanted to let you know what kind of person you were dealing with.
