    1. jl28r1 is really old. (And bald, and muppet like)
    2. He subscribes to my belief that only the 1st line of any post deserves any attention. Anything after that is deemed tl:dr. Much like this very post of mine.

    I will for sure be out. Matt, sorry, too lazy to go back and reply, but I will bring a Cherries of Fire for sharing, sorry but I only got one so none for trade. I had planned on bringing Bairille Aois, but unfortunately, some schmuck at UPS threw out all the beer in my box I mailed to myself when I was in Ohio. Amazingly, all non-beer items made it safely, and none were wet or smelled of beer. Just minus 17 bottles of beer, half bombers.I will have several other goodies in tow, sparing the news of what as I hear there was a request for no list?(whose request, just curious?)

    Craig and I will be leaving early Sat. morning as usual from Houstonish, but he did book a hotel in SA for Saturday night. After seriously almost falling asleep on the way home last time, I will not be driving to and from in the same day any longer. Kevin will not be coming, as he opted for JK for Zwanze, and neither of us could do both.

    Look forward to seeing y'all there. Freetail releases have become my favorite, as it is all my favorite beer peoples from all the great cities of TX!! :relaxed:)

    Got 4 extra jk zwanze glasses if someone wants some at the bottle release. Don't really want anything special for em. Just cash or a decent beer. Would prefer to get a couple glasses each to a couple BA's to make it easy but I'm flexible if needed. Anyways, hit me up if your looking for em.

    Shoot me a bm and the last one is yours. I'm in Austin so it'd have to be through the freetail release.

    I love Red Dog, it has a special place in my heart. When I was still 20 and in college, a fine youthful "salesman" showed up at my door. He was selling magazine subscriptions to raise money...you know how the story goes. We ended up partaking in something that is now "legal" in some states and I drove him to the store to buy some beer for us. He walked out with a 12'er of Red Dog. We drank it all back at my apartment, it was a great day. The end.

    I could bring it to you. May not be able to get to to you immediately...have you got someone to handle this, and if not, will you be at the Houston Saucer tasting on the 29th? That would make for an easy delivery. I would PM this, but just figure it is easier to get to both parties here. I'm feeling kinda lazy here....

    The bottle share has to end by 10:45, because the restaurant opens at 11. But some people stick around, eat and drink for a while after that.

    People start drinking whenever they get there. But it seems that the majority of people arrive between 8-11

    Downside: I'm out of jk zwanze glassware

    Upside:
    11 dark lord
    Surly syx
    12 dissident
    OG black metal
    12 Rumpkin
    12 uncle Jacobs
    11 stone RIS belgo anise
    Homebrew saison

    I may find another beer or two to bring for the share. I'm bringing a couple friends(not mules, they'll be keeping their bottles) so I need to help cover their way.

    Would one of you clever fuckers change the words to the Monday Night Football song to make it Freetail release/tasting related? I tried and as Miikezombie would point out, I'm old and lose focus to easily. Here is the original (I think) :

    Welcome to the party, all my rowdy friends,
    A Monday Night Bash on ESPN!
    The game of the week, is about to ignite
    Time to kick it off under the lights
    The pressure is rising, strap in and hold tight
    We're gonna blow the roof off this place tonight
    Ready!
    C'mon and get ready
    I mean really ready
    Are you ready for some football?
    A Monday night party
    The whole house is rockin', let's get it kick started
    Launch this thing, raise the roof, that's right
    All my rowdy friends are here on Monday night


    Thanks, and be friendly! :sunglasses:
