    I have hosted and can again as well, in Charlestown. These fell off a bit over the holidays but would love to get them going again!

    Yeah, like @DonFrap said, having the right day is the problem, not the space. I can host most days.

    I have been to many bottle shares in my time. I will say it is sometimes pretty nice when a bar or pub will let us do one there. People can order food, plenty of water, more space. If you usually give the bar or pub enough time they are cool with it. Just an idea.

    I just managed to brew for only the second time since my son was born and he's 18 months so obviously I'm impressed.

    Congrats!

    I would love to be involved in one of these. I'm busy this Friday but keep me up to date with future plans and I would be very interested. I don't really know anyone who is into beer, so that sucks, and I'm always down to meet new people.

    Baby is due in April, although my wife has some complications, and is on bedrest, and the baby could come at any time.

    I have never brewed, my buddy @ShawDeuce22 is the one brewing, i'm just going to offer moral support and to drink some beer.
    We also have some small used rum barrels that we might throw some of it into. not sure on that.

    Good luck with everything, mine was only three weeks early, but that stuff is nerve racking.

    I'm also interested in this. I can't make Friday, but live in the South End and could host one in the future. I need other people to help me drink all these stouts.
