    I'm hoping I can make it to the next one, with some west coast and SC goodies in tow.

    Please take a minute to update the doodle. I confirmed that I'm not leaving town anytime soon (even though I thought I might have to), so we're about ready to settle on a time.

    Glad to hear that you'll remain an adopted Tar Heel for a bit longer my Friend (hopefully that doesn't screw you up on a personal level). Sundays sux for me since I work 3rd shift yadda yadda yadda. Anywho Adam, I've got you one of them there Thirsty Dog's Wulver (makes BA Siberian Night seem average) for ya when once we meet again. Cheers !!

    I think our lines got crossed, my friend. Allow me to clarify:

    I thought I might have to leave town on June 29-30. That was also looking like the best date for a tasting, but I was hesitant to commit in case I did need to be out of town that day.

    However, I now know I'll be here all weekends until the end of July. So, that should free me up to pick a date for the tasting.

    Fairly importantly for a tasting at Tim's, I believe he won't be in town next weekend. So there's that.

    Wulver is damn good...gives Backwoods Bastard a run for its money...actually I think it's better than BB.

    Yeah Tim is out of town next weekend per a message he sent me.
     
  18. Bluecane

    Bluecane Initiate (0) Dec 30, 2011 New York

    Yep, that's correct about Tim.

    I think that's right, Joe.

    If anyone wants to crack some stuff with me tomorrow or during this week, though, I'm down.

    Happy to crack an HF saison Sunday afternoon/evening or during the week. Maybe a Marshal Zhukov, too :D

    No worries. It does indeed look like a few of us will be getting together tonight at ~7:30, and any of y'all are welcome to join.

    I'll keep working at a date. We may need a new doodle! lol

    I'll try to bring Mexican Cake and maybe BA Mexican Cake if I can score a few, plus Pt5th as we already discussed, and some other stuff. For the next tasting that is, can't make it tonight.

    My weekends are pretty much booked up through July 20th with various and numerous beer events (beach trip, Brew Bern, Summertime Brews Fest, Beer Dinner @ Jakes Billiards in Greensboro) but you sunz uh bytches go ahead and drink all that good shit in my absence. I'll bring a case of Billy Beer and a case of 1982 Buttweizer when I'm eventually able to chime in on one these shares. :mad: Cheers Friends

    So, I thought I was going to be in FL August 2, 3, 4 (Friday/Sat/Sun), but, it looks like I'll be in NC those days! I may also be around August 16-18 (Fri-Sun), but that time may be a little tougher.

    I'd love it if a big tasting worked out for that weekend August 2-4.

    Lets narrow it down to August 2 or 3 and I'll get my sexyterry to pencil you in on my most hectic schedule. :D

    Let's say Saturday, August 3, just in case I don't come straight home after the exam and/or need a couple of recovery days. Let us know if that works for ya. We should do something then in any case, but the more the merrier blahblahblah.

    Haha, damn it... I can't make the 3rd, but the 4th works. Don't plan around me; hard to comply with everyone's schedules...

    People seem to prefer Saturdays, but we'll see how it goes. I wish I could add a poll.

    I'm in on August 3rd. Now to try and figure out what to bring, I definitely have nothing even remotely close to a whale @ this point. I've got a 2010 Avery Kaiser, 2012 + 2013 FFF Behemoth, 2013 Nantahala Trail Magic (Stout), 2013 Nantahala Chocolate Covered Cherry Stout, 2011 Bell's Eccentric (12 oz.), and a Bolt Cutter. If no ones into any of those lemme know asap so I can get on the trade bandwagon again and try to pick up something outta Chicago or San Antonio. Cheers, Gary

    Heck, Gary, your presence >>> any beers you could bring, anyway.*

    *Unless you have Mornin Delight, Kentucky Brunch, or BA Dark Lord.
