    So, I know I've tried to bring this up in the past and basically got crickets but would really like to do one of these in the near future and think it would be pretty cool. I've got some Heady coming in the mail tomorrow along with about 40-50 other bottles already at home.

    I don't know about you guys but I'm not always up for 22oz of 12% Barleywine so sharing seems logical and a good excuse to bust open something that's possibly been sitting around

    Anyone up for this? If so, when? Can anyone offer their place?

    I could host but I've only got a 1200 sq. ft. condo that could manage about 8....or everyone bring a folding chair and we can hang in the garage.

    I welcome any comments/suggestions!

    I am up for it. We used to do them all the time when I lived in Virginia. You could open 750's and bombers without having to drink it all and share. It was a great way to try some different beers and make some new friends.

    Great! I'm hoping this thread can gain some more notice and more responses, and then we can work on a date and location after that.

    Heady Topper? Oh you lucky bastard....lol. I have not had that in over a year but it is absolutely a tier one fav of mine. Did you order or trade for it if you do not mind my asking?

    Even if we don't get a huge response, we could still do something smaller.

    If any of you are on facebook you should join the Arizona Craft Beer Lovers page. There are a number of people who do bottle shares all the time with some pretty interesting stuff. A lot of them get regular deliveries of beers not distributed here.

    I'd be interested. I don't have anything real rare, but would share what I have. Not on facebook, so can we continue this convo here?

    Sure. I can try and gather from both but since we're picking up speed on here, it looks like I may not even need to go to Facebook.

    If it has to be a weekend Sunday is better.

    I can do Fridays too...

    If anyone else wants to throw out a date and/or location, please do.

    I don't do much other than work and diddle-daddle around, so I'm pretty flexible...

    I'm moving down your way in a couple months. I'd be up for a bottle share and I'll have some Mid west beers to share

    Alright, it seems like most are good for Satruday except for luwak (hopefully you can make it work). I can respond to everyone who was interested via BM once we nail down a date (and also other AZ posters on BA). How does April 13th sound? I could do 4/20 but I've got Pat's run and Tucson is having a spring beer fest that day as well, so I'd prefer not 4/20.

    No problem, just tell me what you'd like and if there's room in the truck I'll bring it.
    I'll probably start a new thread before I move so I can take care of you guys.

    I like April 13- I'll put it on the calendar. Is there going to be a theme?
