Chips, Dips and Beer Tasting - Free Event

Let's get together to taste various beers from around the world. And whats best to go with beer tasting, that's right..... something salty.

WHAT TO BRING:

- 6 pack of beer (Please add the name of the beer you will bring to the RSVP so we do not have duplicates) The beer must be unique and not common (No Bud, Miller etc...) A great place to find unique beers are Bev Mo, World Market etc...

- Appetizer to taste with your beer

- For those that do not drink beer but sill want to come, bring another cocktail (Wine, etc)

Directions will be sent the day before the event.

Hi All,

This Saturday is the Beer Tasting event. Please ensure to update your RSVP if you unable to come, so that others can join that are on the waiting list. If you are not bringing beer, you will need to bring a Cocktail to Share and an Appetizer.

If you are bringing beer, I need each of you to update your RSVP and document the name of the Beer you are brining in the comment section of the RSVP. Keep in mind, this event is to try various beers from all over the world. Do not bring Bud, Miller, or any other domestic beer, as we at one point or another have tried those beers.

Also, those who are bringing beer, will also need to bring an appetizer that goes well with the beer, whether it is peanuts, chips, dip, apples, mangos, you name it.

I will supply some coolers with ice, however, those that can bring a small cooler with them to keep their beer in, all the better.
Keep in mind, you are all responsible for your own safety. Please dont drink and drive. If you have had one to many, don't leave till you sober up. Let's keep this fun but safe too.

How this will work:

I will provide you a small beer sampling cup which you must reuse (I have a sink to rinse out if needed). Each of you that are bringing beer will pour a small sample for each. We will sample 10 beers, then rotate so that those pouring before can sample. It is important to know who is brining beer so I know how many numbers to hand out to keep these event somewhat functional. lol

We will will not judge this event. There will be too many to choose from and to ensure that we get a tast of all the beers, only one sample will be allowed. I know, no fun huh?

If any of you have any extra fold up tables that you could bring, will you let me know as I only have 2. It would be very helpful. Please email if you do. Plan on bringing it just in case.

Latestly, I will send out the directions the day before the event. Make sure you look in your junk email. I do not post my address within the meetup site for confidential purposes. :) If you dont get the directions, then please call me. [masked]-1059.

    Had a great time tasting all the different beers. Good company, good food, and as usual, Alicia was an excellent host.

    Exactly as advertised. Everyone bought a unique 6-pack and the host had a plan and supplies that allowed everyone to be able to try every beer. Lots of appetizers and snacks and friendly people as well. Great job!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
