Beer Tasting Party XXII

  • February 1, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This is one of our most popular events, and is a great chance to expand your beer-loving palate while getting to know your fellow beer lovers in a smaller setting. Spots are limited, so please only RSVP if you are committed to attending.

Because this is a limited space event, the guest option has been turned off.  If you have a friend that wants to attend but is not a member, please ask them to join and RSVP separately. 

If the event is full, don't hesitate to join the waitlist -- spots always open up.  

Where: Rhonda's place. The actual address will be provided a day or two before the event.

When:  7:00 p.m.   Please be on time: we don't start the tastings until everyone is there.

What: This is a BYOB (Bring Your Own Beer) / bottle share party. Each attendee is required to bring a craft beer for sharing and sampling (please, no beers from Bud/Miller/Coors). Home brewers are encouraged to bring their specialties.  We will be doing "blind tastings" so keep your beer a secret, and prepare to be surprised!  There will be a prize for the crowd favorite.

No "theme" in beers this time - bring whatever style you want. 

Not sure what to bring? Ask your local beer seller for suggestions. Total Wine, Once Upon a Vine, and Whole Foods all have great selections, as well as many other specialty stores around Richmond.

Numbers: We limit these tasting parties to 18 spots to keep things manageable. Please bring enough for everyone to taste at least a 2 oz sample of your beer (4-12 oz bottles or a couple of 24 oz, if all 18 spots are filled). Tasting cups will be provided.

Soak up that beer: Donations of beer-friendly foods are encouraged.  We'll provide water for between tastings.

Again, please only RSVP if you are committed to attending. No-shows mess with the delicate balance of the Beer Universe, so if you change your mind, please be courteous and change your RSVP

    Sorry for canceling, have a child care issue and I'm not sure it will be resolved by Saturday. Don't want to take up the space if someone wants it.

    I hate to change my "yes" RSVP to a "no" again, but I hope that at least I am giving someone else plenty of time to claim my spot.

      Let's take me off the waitlist this time around; my workday is starting to fill up! Thanks!

    Which beer would you recommend for someone who never had beer in his life... ?

    January 27, 2014

    • Amy K

      To be honest this may not be the best event for someone who's never had beer at all, it can be pretty overwhelming with 18 beers to taste. You might want to start with a happy hour where you can taste 2-3, first.

      You need someone to sit down with to guide you by sampling a small variety of beers to see what you like and, more importantly, don't like. There are sweet, bitter and sour beers, some that have very little body and others that are syrupy. My brother recently took someone out who had never tried beer before and she was amazed and very pleasantly surprised by the varieties to choose from.

    Hi, the general location will help be decide if I should remain on the waitlist. Thanks!

    January 27, 2014

    • Rhonda

      The closet intersection is Parham & Woodman Road. Does that help?

      January 27, 2014

    • Elyse

      Yes, absolutely! Thanks!

      January 27, 2014

  • Amy K

    I'm going to bow out and let someone else have my spot - but I'll still be updating the event page and sending out reminders etc. Can't get rid of me completely ;-)
