    Surprised there's no thread for this. A little more than a week away. 10 Day forcast has a 60% chance of snow next Thursday. Is anyone getting in Wednesday night? I'll be arriving late and open to opening a couple bottles.

    I'm hoping there's no snow -- my car can barely handle speed bumps.

    I'm getting in Thursday afternoon, leaving Friday morning.

    I'm getting in on Wednesday to do the vertical tasting. I doubt I'll be up for bottles after that, since it doesn't start to 7:30 and we'll be drinking a fuckton of stouts.

    Also, what are people bringing? For the love of god not stouts. I'll probably do some Cantillon, some other sours. Maybe a 3L Supplication, that would be fun.

    Since banned on BA missed Todd's post about vertical, oh well. Thinking Upland Raspberry, Veritas 012, Noble Tongue Tickles and whatever else i toss in my luggage.

    Sours are the worst, I don't have anything worth sharing to take because I am the worst.

    Then bring Blind Pig. Anything to mix it up, and all styles besides sours and stouts are ridiculously underrepresented at these things. I'm serious, if you bring Blind Pig then find me because I'll take some.

    That would mean I have access to blind pig. Maybe I will take a FW growler of something

    Anything you're proud to share is cool. The share is really just for variety, we're all there for the Eclipse. No one should feel down about what they're bringing to share. Last year my friend who's not as into beer as most here brought a growler of Icky IPA from Reno that was well recieved. It's going to be a blast!

    I also really want to emphasize how much it helps to have something to break up the other beers. Like, a growler of Daytime would be fucking perfect to bring, because no one ever thinks of that sort of thing and having something that's delicious but low-ABV and pretty different is huge. So if you don't want to bring something fancy-ass, bring something like that.

    PLEASE bring low-gravity beers to share. At the end of last year, I was carrying eikhcsel around. Poor guy couldn't hold his liquor. I also observed westcoastbeerlvr in facepaint.

    Think of the children.

    Good practice for dodging throwing knives this year I hope. I can't wait to be asked while waiting in line if I know Arbitrator.

    My brother and I are flying in on Thurs afternoon and then heading to Squaw Fri if there's snow, if not we'll drive to Russian River, win-win. We'll bring a few non-stouts. After attending many Bruery functions, my palate has grown accustomed to Hottenroth cleansers.

    It'll be good seeing you guys again. We talked about the Eclipse party at the last clusterfork.

    Ah yes, slowly putting faces to handles. Thanks for the helpful advice.

    Why the hell were you banned from BA? You're like the nicest guy ever

    I never really got a reason, my only guess is that even with my extremely limited knowledge of beer I know more about beer than the Bros. Or possibly because I don't find humor in having people's cars towed... Regardless of why I got banned there, I'm happy to be here.

    Low ABV. Check. Maybe get some Oaktoberfest growlers from FW since they won't do their saison in growlers yet. Maybe go to barrelhouse and see if their beers are worth taking there yet since they have some low ABV stuff.
