Icrontic St Paddy's Beer Tasting - Barrel Aged Scottish Ales (Begorrah!)

RyanMMRyanMM Ferndale, MI Icrontian
edited 18 Mar in Events

In the hope of being a more organized person in 2019 (Hahahahahah) I'm kicking things off with beer tasting planning for the year. First major Icrontic event is ICSP, so it seems like a good time for a tasting. Since folks typically get pretty messy during Nain on Sunday, this will likely be at 3pm on Saturday the 23rd.

We'll be tasting through a variety of Scottish-style ales that have gotten the barrel-aging treatment. Some of these will be Scottish Ales, some of them Wee Heavies, some of them Scotch Ales, so we'll get a good variety of flavor profiles. We'll taste our way through 10-11 of these beers along with an assortment of food (may or may not be Irish and/or Scottish themed, we'll see!)

Tasting will come in around $30-35 and will be best suited to at least 5 attendees besides myself or 10-11.

Please post if you're interested in joining and hopefully we'll see you in a few months!

    Moderately-qualified "IN". Cleared it with The Boss™ this afternoon.

    I have a Backwoods Bastard bomber that I wouldn't otherwise kill on my own if we need a little extra.

    Unqualifying my IN on this. Just need an idea of time so I can plan.

    Will probably just crash somewhere at HQ.

    OP has been updated with additional details. I have firmed up the time to be 3pm on Saturday the 23rd.

    I've got some REALLY fun beers lined up for this. I'm excited. As if I am never not.

    Pricing works out best if we have either 6 or 11-12 attendees and we're at 8 right now, so we still have 3-4 open seats now that Josh is out.
