    Figured someone needed to start it.


    So this is purely hypothetical at this point, but if I were to rent out a venue for the evening before Hunahpu's day in Tampa, for some casual drinking (I.E. Not a crazy drunkfest) with food, who might be interested in participating?

    I knew my sentence didn't sound correct. Hypothetical. Lol.

    I'll try to update this as TBBW events become available as well. For any first timers, the week leading up to Hunahpu's Day is considered Tampa Bay Beer Week. There will be events at bars and breweries throughout the area all week. Then Cycle usually hosts a Barrel Aged Day (ticketed event) on Friday and may also have bottle releases throughout the week. 7venth Sun in Dunedin also typically hosts a Hunahpu's Hangover Day on Sunday, with great beers on tap as well. Also look for local liquor chain Leukens to do bottle releases that week as well.

    What's the deal with Cycle Day tickets? How can I get them? If I go, how obliterated do you get from drinking all the stouts for 5 hours? I think I just answered one of my questions. First timer here as well.

    Most people leave that event pretty well intoxicated. The tickets are almost always purchasable on site only, and they usually sell out very quickly, as it is not a huge event by most standards. That could change this year possibly, as they have expanded their barrel program.

    I'm definitely down for a low-key type thing. You thinking like a casual (i.e. non-whales-only, Ratebeer-style) bottle share or something like that? Cuz I am always on that page.

    The Cycle thing sounds great too, but if tickets are sold onsite, that makes it highly unlikely that I'd be able to go, what with not living in Florida and all...

    I don't even usually bother with cycle BA day, not because it's bad, but because I don't like waiting in line for things, like tickets. Yeah it will just be whatever beer you want to bring, no expectations for whatever I end up hosting. If it's 6 or less people I'll host it, if it's more we'll find a chill space.

    If I can swing it I'd be down. Buying a house so funds are a bit tight but I'm hopeful I'll make it down. I'm skipping Huna Day, as that was my least favorite (and most expensive) part of last year. I just want to go to shares and meet more TBers.

    I'd be down, depending on cycle tickets. I really loved that event last year and would love to score a ticket agsin this year.

    Ray knows nothing. He is a fool. Perhaps THE fool.
