    Bring at least that, but many people bring other things as well they want to share with others. But you aren't obligated to do that.

    people are bringing anywhere from 2 to the equivalent of 35 bottles. bring what you like! you can show up with 2 and no one will judge you. you can show up with, well, the equivalent of 35, and if we don't drink them all, take them home!


    (no joke. grumpyoldtroll isn't the only one bringing a surprise....)

    The thing that hurts those of us who can't attend is the thread that follows after with photos and lists of everything we didn't get to try. Humbug!

    Do tell what you're doing this weekend that'll be worse. I'm sure you'll have an ample amount of craft beer wherever it is bud.

    I have to go to Newport to hang out with some Kristen's dumb friends...

    I did find a few solid beers spots walkable though. 1 has BCBS on draft as of yeterday...

    between that and the guy from vermont who was like "i heard about this event and sorry i don't have anything rare, just brought some local stuff" that proceeded to pull out every beer lawson's makes, it was a fine event.

    Still trying to figure out what else to bring aside from what I already have in the spreadsheet. Is there any interest in Abraxas (non BA version)? I know this made it to NY recently, but don't know what the availability was like.

    Just got a box in from California today. I see someone's already bringing a Black Tuesday, and I can bring a Melange #3 and a White Oak. If someone's got a Fruet we can do a blend + components lineup (not perfect, as it's White Oak Sap that goes into the anniversary beers).

    No apologies necessary man, looking forward to meeting you and hoisting a few...dozen.:)

    Just found out I have a box of Abyss on the way so I will also bring some Abyss from the cellar with me, unless there is any objections to that. Let me know if Abyss isn't something I should bring haha.

    You're supposed to bring bottles, not kegs... you're gonna drown us all in beer. This is why we can't have nice things!

    Shaping up to be a great event as usual. This will be a great start to NYC beer week. Hope less than stellar weather won't deter folks from coming into the city.

    i'll talk to ted about the people on the waitlist tonight and see if he'd be amenable to 45 or so to accommodate y'all. it's entirely capacity/crowding concerns, so i'll let people know individually.

    Good question, I think 11? Instead of the Le Terroir, I'm bringing a growler of Carton's latest Berliner Weisse!

    Excited to try that Carton, freaking love La Terroir. I'm pretty sure I have a 2010 Black Betty. I'll bring that along.

    I'm just letting you all know that I'm sacrificing my Friday night, going to Top Hops, drinking beer, and tying a million of those growler tags so we can get them on bottles more efficiently.

    You should all feel bad for me and bring extra awesome bottles. Thank you in advance.

    I just had Cartons GORP - Good Old Raisins and Peanut Beer. Would people want to try something different like that or Kane Head High (but I know I saw a couple folks bringing Kane already)

    I'd be interested in GORP, sounds crazy in a good way.
