    Drink plenty of water,
    Don't be afraid to dump,
    Don't take every single beer offered to you,
    You don't have to drink the whole beer in the glass that is given to you
    Pace yourself
    The beers on tap are worth the price of the ticket, share them with others so you can still bottle share

    These are notes to myself

    I'm in the same boat and was going to bring a Love Child #3 but am bringing a Panil Barrique and something else, still not sure what.

    I was planning on getting there early but of all Fridays I'm stuck at work the night before my 1st Woodshop, who knows when I'll get out of here and when I'll get up.

    Getting there around 11:00-11:30 with a 3ltr of 2010 50/50 Rittenhouse Rye plus a few ticks. Please save me a small taste of the Funky Buddha Berliner and Atrial and I'll be your best friend forever!

    Anxious to try the 50/50 RR if we connect. Hey does a Harlan Estate count as a sour?

    Careful what you say about Harlan, Bob. And because I know you like your sours so much

    Not sure if hoppymeal (Derek) is on this site at all anymore but you guys can thank him for that bottle of Sobre Humano (he sent it for RBSG last year and it never got opened).

    I thought I already posted but I guess not. THAT WAS AMAZING! Finished with a bunch of killer big beers and happy someone drove me home. My bicycle is still locked up somewhere on York.

    I know I'm going to sound like a hater, but I just don't get this stuff. Having 2ozs or less of beer is not enough to appreciate/really taste a beer. I real don't understand these mega shares. So many sip and ticks. What is the point? Your palate hasn't even had a chance to adjust to the new flavor before you move on. And that's, like, science, yo.

    This is what I'm talking about. So....

    "Don't be afraid to dump"
    - just judge the beer by your first sip and move on. Doesn't matter what your pre conconcieved notions are or what you just had beofe it, or even if it coats your entire tongue. If it doesn't jump out at you 1,000%, just dump it.

    "Don't take every single beer offered to you"
    -If you've had it before, what's the point?

    "You don't have to drink the whole beer in the glass that is given to you"
    -See "Don't be afraid to dump"

    "Pace yourself"
    -Never drink more than a couple ozs of anything.

    I'm sure it was an awesome party and everyone had a great time. Good for that... I just don't get it. It's beer, people. Drink it.

    Oh, by the way, Mr. Sebowski, you could have as much as you'd like of any of the 16 beers served on tap at the event.

    Wow super fun event. Definitely my favorite of the year. So many great beers, got pours of Blabaer, Cable Car Kriek, LP Geuze, Utopias and bunch more. Thanks for everyone being super generous. Loved the homebrews too-some interesting things going on right now. The draft choices were great as well. Really enjoyed Lazy Susan from Highland Park Brewing Company-a great peach Berliner-expecting big things from them. Grey Monday was wayyyyyy better this year than last year. I could barely taste hazelnuts last year but this year they really nailed it. The infusion table was really fun-the Speedway with toasted coconut was a winner. I think the food should have been done with tickets so everyone at least gets some before people go up for seconds. I know some people that missed out. All in all fun times. Thanks for putting this together Chris!

    #1 - Beachwood Thrillseeker IPA
    #2 - Beachwood Hop Jitsu IPA
    #3 - Chris Banker's Hop Sandwich Double IPA
    #4 - Kelsey McNair's Dryden Double IPA

    Thrillseeker beat out Hop Sandwich by a single vote for favorite of the day.

    I thought this event was all about generosity and sharing, but maybe Mr Sebowski is planning an event where folks get together and keep everything to themselves.
    For everyone at the event - thank for showing such great generosity and passion. I feel privileged to try everything I got to try, including the taps as well. Thanks Chris for organizing!

    Simply incredible event. I came two hours late, the five hours I was there flew by in an instant. Hopperazzi Raspberry Tarte was the winner of the day for me. And BBQ by Mr. Bubbler was fucken money.

    I didn't see this as a problem. The only time pours got skimpy were when a particular bottle ran low and the sharer was doing his best to spread the love. The alternative would be not come and have nothing. Worse result in my book. No complaining here.

    I had a great time thanks to Chris for organizing it all. Did t-shirts ever get handed out, I totally forgot about it on my way out.

    Sorry to anybody I said I would meet and never found you.

    Just drink until your wasted! Drink until you're blotto, blacked out, driving home and running over pedestrians! It's beer, people! If it's in your glass, you FUCKING DRINK IT.

    Or, y'know, when inundated by too much of a good thing, you could pace yourself, drink responsibly, and concentrate on appreciating the things you like the best instead of just consuming alcohol because it's in a glass in front of you.
