5?! Christ. This ought to be an interesting time.

And don't worry, we'll make sure your tasting glass doesn't run dry. I happen to have some experience in muling beer for folks in portland... and from one side of the room to the other sounds a lot simpler than from one side of the border to the other.

Hmm this is tempting me a bit.

I've started avoiding Saraveza because of the $$$ gouging that goes on but as long as the 10 tastes aren't 2oz pours it looks like a decent deal.

Last year they had pretty big pours - somewhere from 6-10oz I think? The glasses they provided were branded tulip-style sleeves, not tasting glasses at all. Very cool.

I'll post a photo of them when I get home tonight.
