EXPO 2016 - What is this sorcery BEER TASTING

RyanMMRyanMM Ferndale, MI Icrontian

Uh, so, a wizard did it.

We will be tasting beer at 12:30pm Thursday June 23rd. That's in less than 12 hours. OMG how are we gonna pull this off? I dunno, it'll be an adventure.

A CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE

Here's how this one will work - You post your 2 favorite beers. Of all time. Of any time. What you're drinking now, what you wish you could drink now. WHATEVS. If possible, tell us what you like about them. Based on the responses from the attendees, I'll be trying to bring beer that will be in the vein of those beers or surprise them in some way.

Tasting will be $20 and I might bring scratch made donuts because why the hell not, it's noon.

Great room is usually good to seat 20 comfortably but this is last minute seat-of-my-pants stuff so let's say 15 attendees max. Post your "IN!"s here as fast as you can and then have your 2 favorite beer thing for me before 10:30am. That's less than 10 hours, folks. Let's get cracking.

    Note: Please make sure you've eaten before this. Don't go out to eat between beer tasting & opening at 3pm, you simply will not have time.

    @MAGIC?

    My goal is to get us done before Giant Catan at 3pm, so we could start as late as 1pm and still wrap with 30 minutes to spare - anyone have an idea what time the bike tour will be returning?

    Nice lineup, shame to miss it.

  • Cliff_ForsterCliff_Forster Baltimore, MD Icrontian

    I don't have the discipline required to collect several rare beers. I think the longest I've ever stored a beer is maybe a month, and that's like a stretch goal that I'm probably making up.

    The trick is to spend hundreds of dollars and buy it in volume. Then its impossible to drink it all in a month.
