    Hello BAs. Would anyone in the San Antonio area be interested in setting up a bottle share, most likely July 11/12, at a local BYOB joint? Some friends and I have some stuff from California, Colorado, as well as some of Jester King's recent releases that we'd like to share with fellow San Antonio beer enthusiasts. We are thinking Boardwalk on Bulverde, but nothing is set in stone now. Just trying to gauge interest.

    It's weird that we don't get these sort of threads for San Antonians more often. I'd be up for this if I wasn't heading to NOLA that weekend.

    We need to get these going though..

    If it's in the afternoon I'm down. It's hard to plan around my work schedule right now, it's pretty lame.

    We used to. But every time I would post about having a bottle share there would be a lot of interest but only the regular people would show up. So it just became easier for everyone to text and set up something at a BAs house instead.

    This is a great idea. I got something going on the evening of the 11th but otherwise would be available. My son would probably attend as well.

    Big Hops is pretty chill with bottle shares.

    This sounds interesting. I would like to meet a few more BAs close to home.

    Update: I'm working with another BA to set up a bottle share at Big Hops Huebner on the 12th. I'll update the thread when it's official.

    If White Chocolate from The Bruery is on the list, I'd consider it ....

    Sweet. Are there any guidelines from Big Hop for the share?

    Buy some beers on draft at Big Hops and tip very well.

    Is this a joke. Levi never misses a big hops bottle share. Lol

    Unfortunately the wife will be out of town and I have to deal with the kids... So no go for me. Hopefully I can manage to find something interesting to drink by myself on Sat. :slight_frown:

    I could conceivably make this, but won't. Which is too bad, since I have plenty of infected White Chocolate to share with @jamescain. Next time.

    I was thinking about bringing a bottle of that same infected White Chocolate to share. Who knows it may end up tasting like Funk Metal. :grimacing:

    So it will be a drain pour no matter what

    I tried one in may, it was horrible. Opened it right after a 2012

    This is why I love you. Next time I see you I will give you a bottle of The Bruery Wanderer aka The Bruery Vinegar.

    I won't be able to make it either, which is too bad because I've got some IPAs I've been holding onto for a while just for @miikezombie

    Have no fear, I offered all of my infected Bruery beer to a sport shooter. I also tried to shoot a Cacaonut with some bottle rockets and a firework mortar shell with worse than expected results. (Brush fire) My time in incarceration gave me a new found love of stale bread and bologna, but I am a glass half full kind of guy.

    Pfffft. IPAs = not rare enough or barrel aged enough

    Nope. I have to "work". LOL.

    Nope. "They" "found" "something" for me to "do". So therefore, I will be extremely "busy" at "work" "all day" tomorrow. I may have to "work" Sunday too. The horror.
