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
