Beer Tasting Party XXIII

  • March 29, 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: Carl's house, located in the Short Pump area. 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 the last minute cancellation. I was hoping to feel better by now, but alas, I am not and I'd rather not get everyone sick. Plus, my palate is crap right now!

    Unfortunately, I have been communicated new information about my roles this Saturday at work and I will be unable to attend. I was really looking forward to seeing you all and sharing some good beers (I picked up several for me to choose from). So I relinquish my spot so someone else may enjoy in this great experience.

    For the waitlisted folks: remember to watch your email for notifications of openings. For now the waitlist is "automatic" - as spots open up people get moved up automatically in order of RSVP. A couple days before the event I'll change it to "manual" - which means when a spot opens up, an email notice goes out to the waitlist, and the first person to grab it, gets it. This keeps things more fair, as people are less likely to notice they've been moved up automatically as we get closer - and then no-show. As always, please change your RSVP ASAP if you decide not to attend, so someone else on the waitlist can have your spot.

    I am going to throw this out there so maybe we can start connecting earlier: Are you on untappd? Reply with your username so we can "friend" as this can also make figuring out what beer we are drinking a bit easier. LOL
