BeerFest 2012 (David R Version)

Because DSN missed BeerFest in May (I was out of town), I figure now's as good a time as any to offer up some tasty samplings.

See below for a list of beers I will have on hand (or, about 90% of these will be around).

Rather than suggest everyone go & buy something (where we could have several duplicates), you can drop a few bucks in my beer bank ($5+ would be great!). But if you already have one you want to bring, be my guest!

This is NOT a potluck dinner. I'll provide some snacks, but please have dinner before you come! Alcohol & empty stomachs... not good!

This is NOT a games night.

This is NOT a 'pub night' - I urge everyone to be cautious with their consumption.
The new, stronger drinking-driving law went into effect July 1 - harsher penalties!!

This is for those who LIKE BEER, or want to test the waters for some new tastes.

You don't have to DRINK it; this is a tasting session, so spit-cups will be available.

You don't have to KNOW anything about beer... I'm sure we'll have a few experts who can discuss it intelligently... and I'll have a computer hooked up so you can look up information on whatever you find that you absolutely LOVE...

If we're lucky, we'll all LEARN something about beer, too...

Here's a list of what I have (as I write this!) and will likely have when you drop in:

AMENDED JULY 28 ***You're in for a treat!! I have several bottles of Westvleteren 12, "the best beer in the world", scoring 100 on both RateBeer scales.

    Note - I've seen a lot of these beer photos showing up on the DSN Main page since I posted them.
    It's supposed to show random pics from albums, but it obviously puts more emphasis on new albums.

    In order to avoid (potential new members) seeing the group as a DRINKING GROUP - you can see all the pics of the beers we tried tonight, in the matching Church of Beer photo album here - http://www.meetup.com/Calgary-Church-Of-Beer/photos/9950002/

    Didn't find a new favorite, but enjoyed trying some new beers. Especially interesting was the bacon, maple and donut one. Thanks David for hosting!

    Perfect-size crowd, with a couple of Church-of-Beer-ians...
    A nice variety of beers tried (well, you let me choose, so I call it a nice variety!).
    Because it worked out well, thumbs up for another one!
