    Ladies and Gentleman, boys and girls, and anyone interested. . .

    The time has come for something special. It has been talked about and there was a point where it wasn't going to happen. There is a box on its way to me. In it, eleven beers that are waiting to be opened and consumed by the beer lovers of Sydney. It is a lineup consisting of my favorite Imperial Stouts of all time. That is right, FiftyFifty Eclipse.

    Where: The Local Taphouse, Sydney
    When: TBD, June, 2012
    Who: 10 - 12 Beer loving people
    How: The plan is to rent a private room in The Local Taphouse to drink these. The price of admission is $200 divided up between 11-12 people. So with a cap of 12 people or so it will be around $15-$18 each.

    Please either RSVP via post in this thread or private beer mail. Once everyone is accounted for we will then vote on a specific date.

    Without further ado, brews sacrificed to the slaughter:​

    2010 Evan Williams
    2010 Heaven Hill
    2010 Four Roses
    2010 Christian Bro. Brandy

    Cheers,
    Jordan

    I am in. Better not be June 17-2O as in NZ . Taphouse in Sydney will have zilch on so all good. Can also bring a EC 12, rittenhouse rye and 4 roses. Maybe a whisky hunaphu. Maybe the taphouse will have something like a decent beer on tap worth buying. Will be my last visit until they update their tap list or send stuff Melbourne gets

    good call Jordan as the taphouse gets nothing on tap in Sydney.
    Thanks Steve. Much appreciated. Still got Illawara on Growlers??
    Go have a daquari and get Sydney some real beer.

    I'm in. I might also be in NZ between the 17th and 20th of June, but will otherwise be right for it.

    Very much looking forward to it.

    Thanks Jordan!

    I'm totally in for this if it's on a date I can make. The only potential issue for me is I'm away June 9-18. Any other date in June I can do.
