Meetup #10 for Buffalo Beer Tasting Club

We met with Bill Metzger at Gene McCarthy's for lunch. We had an awesome Peninsula Porter...they are not making it anymore or anything anymore at MBC so we had the last keg...quite a nice touch from this fabled beer entrepreneur. It looks like we have pre-liminary info and dates for you to save. If all goes well we will be featuring Ithaca Breweries this evening (specifics later). We also may be doing something a little different food wise since this is also their forte' so we may be charging $10 this Meetup for a little bit better food than normal. Again specifics to be later. Keep plugged in for more.

    Great meetup. I love IPAs and these were all new ones to me. The commentary by Bill Metzger was very educational. I enjoyed the experience very much.

    This was my first beer tasting event. I had a great time reconnecting with old friends and meeting new ones. Bill did an excellent job as host of the event and I hope I am able to attend the next one.

    Thanks, Joe, for the warm welcome to the group and for making sure I was well taken care of when I was skipped on a couple of samples. Bill went WAY out of his way to make sure I found a sample that I liked. I'm pretty sure I ended up sampling far more beer than anyone! Can't wait to see what you come up with next!

      Patty, glad you had fun...we usually do not have all one style like last night so future meet ups should have more chances to find something tasty!

    Thanks again, Joe and Ron, for another great beer meetup. Gene McCarthy's is an awesome bar, I was in there once before, and Bill Metzger really knows his beers. The selection was the best (I'm an IPA lover myself and had never had ANY of the ones we sampled before last night) and met some new people that were very interesting to talk to.

    Guys this was the best meetup yet! Thanks to everyone who kept on top of their RSVPs, it made it easier. Hopefully I managed to personally chat with each of you. My voice is shot this morning so I must have come close. Thanks also to the new members that came. Our group is growing and as Ron mentioned it is our first anniversary! We are planning more fun so please stay tuned!

    Hi Folks...we are looking forward to a great time tonight with local beer legend Bill Metzger. I want to thank everyone for keeping on top of their RSVPs...we have had several people change to NO and some to YES at the last minute. This is very cool and will help to avoid problems. Remember I have a Meetup App and can check it right at 630 if need be. Thank you for your great responses and we have 51 so far scheduled as of 1045am. Joe

    Hi Folks, we are still on for the 28th but Bill told me Ithaca did not want to play nice so they are out. Since Bill is our local Beer Legend he is putting together an evening of 6 tastes with tons of knowledge being doled out as well so it looks like we will deviate a little from our normal program and give the reigns to Bill. Please remember to stay on top of your RSVPs and change it as needed. Since I have a meetup app I can check right up to the last minute. Thanks.

    Bill has told us it will be $10 to cover the costs.

      ME we try not to have too many on the same day of the week, it gives all a chance to attend. If your schedule opens up change your RSVP last minute and show up.

      March 9, 2013

    • MaryEllen

      Ok,,,thanks Im going to try.sounds like fun!

    Before I forget, I ask all members to change their RSVP if something happens. If it is last minute I have a smartphone and a meetup app so I will be able to keep a running RSVP current when away from my desk. Folks this is very important...please be respectful of our efforts and make a formal RSVP change when you can...doesn't matter if it's a last minute yes or no change.
