    Ryan, you're going to make me blush. Now I have to screw someone over to raise my street cred.

    Y'all do realize it's at 11am right? No need to bring a case of beer(brandon, looking at you!) lets go quality over quanitity(now looking at me. I always bring a shitty beer to a tasting)

    fork you Zappa, if I want to bring a case of 5 percent ABV beers where I am only slightly perturbed because I barely have a buzz, then that is my issue, not yours.

    I haven't had any issues with this year batch, had probably 12-16 bottles so far. Have you?

    The four pack I picked up right when it came out was great. I picked up another last Monday. I opened two and as Hank Hill would say, "That boy ain't right!"

    If I don't have to work I'm in. Too bad it's not in a few monthes or I'd have some crooked stave. I think i still have a sour in the rye and some RR stuff though.

    Might actually make it to this one. I'll bring a BLVD Love Child #2 if no one else is, otherwise I've got some RR Sanctification. I've also got this bottle of 2008 Ommegang Biere De Mars... No idea how that one has held up, but if anyone would like to try that I'd be totally down to crack into it as well.

    Not sure if anyone is keeping a list of people who plan on attending but if so, I am not going to be able to make this. Bummed because it sounds like a good time. If it gets changed to Sunday I'm in though!

    I fully endorse folks doing this on their own, but I got roped into responsible adult shit instead of fun beer shit. Have fun folks!

    Sad news! Damn that responsibilty thing....

    So is everything still good to go at Muddy Waters? We're not going to walk in there, bottles in hand, and be greeted by strange looks and obscene language, are we?

    Everything should be cool. I was going to call and double check with them but we have had a number of bottle shares there before.

    Streets off of Lyndale and Lake are free. Think the lot behind Lyndale Tap House is only 50 cents an hour or something cheap like that.

    Seems a lot of people forgot about this and with no clear plan, only a few of us showed. Met Ol_Johnny and a buddy of his, shared a couple of beers, ate some food, and shot the breeze. Enjoyed meeting you guys and hope to see you at other events.

    *Important information*. Muddy Waters will no longer allow bottle shares/tastings at their establishment. The owner sat down with us and explained that the city of Minneapolis does not allow such things. Seems corkage only applies to wine and not to beer so these sort of private events will no longer be tolerated. Great guy and wished he was allowed to do such things, but it was out of his hands. He asked that we pass this message along.

    Though I have not been to New Bohemia's Sunday night bottle share yet, how are they able to do that then...? Hopefully it's one of those things that "No one's got to know 'bout it."

    Why would they allow corkage on wine, but not beer? Makes no sense.
