Meetup #18 Second Anniversary Extravaganza

Folks this is our 2 year anniversary of the Buffalo Beer Tasting Club! We are pulling out all the stops for this one! We are going with a different plan altogether...The Organizers Choice! Ron and Joe will be choosing the beers to taste and talking about the tasting notes. We are attempting to have plenty of swag and beer club trivia so this one will last an extra 30 minutes and go from 630-9pm. As always please remember to adjust your RSVP if it changes. This particular Meetup will have the normal 4 beers to taste and food but the price will be $15 to cover a portion of the swag so get your reservation in early!!

    So much fun. Very welcoming and sensitive to newcomers. Diverse crowd re ages, occupations, interests. Beer is the glue that binds!

    Awesome event folks...it was great to see so many but challenging at the same time. Thanks for the patience as we worked thru the heavy sign in volume. Special thanks to Kelly, Ron's daughter who helped with name tags.

    I'm so disappointed. I need to cancel. Going to Sheas. I tried selling my Shea's tickets to drink beer instead, but no takers.

    Guys we may need to carpool a little. Santoras is worried about parking so maybe if some of us can combine cars that would help immensely. Thx.

      I was thinking about parking across the street at Eastern Hills mall and taking my life in my hands by crossing Transit.

    Hey Ron , Joe---I will not be making it to the beer tasting Thursday---I have a seminar to attend to and I probably would be late . Wow ! 100 people coming ---isn't that going to be a little crowded? There were 50 people at this place last time and that was very full then

  • Kate

    Darn it, thought I could go, but now I have a work thing in the evening. Have tons of fun (holy cow over 100 people!), hope to see you at the next one.

    I plan on attending. I attended the Bells tasting at Santora's (My wife is addicted to Bells Oberon...remember me?).

    To get an idea of how "BIG" Oberon is, the first day of spring was "Release Day" in MI. They celebrated like kicking off a Munich Oktoberfest with someone tapping the first keg. One Oberon was poured every 15 seconds. A friend sent a picture of a TV screen showing the announcement on the Detroit evening news. I wish I could attach the picture.

      No, I don't but I would guess that since they just started this season's, it should show up soon.

    Hey Joe, my rsvp shows a +1. It's just going to be me. Just an FYI. Thanks!

    1 · March 25, 2014

  • Joe A.

    Hi Folks! We're rapidly approaching 100 RSVPs. The critical thing to remember is that you must change your RSVP on the site if you are unable to attend due to illness, plans change, etc. I have a Meetup app on my smartphone and give the bar owner an up to the minute total so they can have enough food. If totals are inflated then someone has to pay more! Please Change your RSVP by 6pm. Thx.
