Icrontic New Year "Goodbye 2018" Beer Tasting - NUTTY BEER

RyanMMRyanMM Ferndale, MI Icrontian
edited Dec 2018 in Events

We'll be tasting a variety of beers (primarily stouts, though there may be a dark horse or two) with nuts or nut extracts in the mix. Peanuts, almonds, pecans, hazelnuts, walnuts - and who knows what else! Those with nut allergies need not be present. Seriously. You'll die.

Date and time is now set for Sunday at 6:30pm.

This will be a blind share but not a side-by-side, just for convenience.

Price still TBD, I'm hoping to keep this one at $30 or below.

Post interest here - would likely be Saturday 12/29 or Sunday 12/30 - please indicate which date would work for you.

Likely looking at seating 9 people. First come first served here.

  1. Ryan
  2. you?
  3. you?
  4. you?
  5. you?
  6. you?
  7. you?
  8. you?
  9. you?

Cheers everyone! Can't wait to see you all!

    My preference is towards Saturday, but I don't know if everyone will be in town yet who's attending that would be interested.

  • TushonTushon I'm scared, Coach Alexandria, VA Icrontian

    Tentative in for the 30th, would be out for 29th

  • AlexDeGruvenAlexDeGruven Not as tall as Bobby Tallbeer. Twilight Sparkle is overrated. Meechigan Icrontian

    Tentative in for 29th, 30th probably wouldn't work for me.

  • lersheelershee Keeper of J Sterling Heights, MI Icrontian

    I could do either one. Let me know!

  • LincLinc Bard Detroit, MI Icrontian

    I'm likely in.

    Aaron is only available 7:30 or later on the weekend, but I wouldn't plan around him as even that is uncertain.

  • GnomeQueenGnomeQueen The Lulz Queen Mountain Dew Mouth Icrontian

    Bobby and I will still be around, but I don't know that I'll feel up to a big beer tasting after new years, lol.

    who are we kidding, this is Icrontic and we'd be drinking by noon on 1/1 regardless. ;)

    Probably in, preferably 29th but I can probably make either day work.

    Like Jackie said - we get there the 30th (likely.) anytime between then and the 2nd would be good for us.
