Are you a beer experimentalist?

Do you like beer and like to try new ones all the time, or do you stick to the few beers you like best? Would you plop down $12 to try a new beer from Zimbabwe and not be upset if it's not the greatest beer you've ever had, or would you think about the $12 spent for the next five weeks? Would you willing try a beer made from strawberries, beer served warm or do you scoff and say -- hey that's not beer!!!

If you picked the first answer to each question, this is the event for you. My goal is to try every beer in this place, and the place has an amazing variety of beers from all over the world and the USA. At the rate of two beers a visit and visiting only once a month or so I will meet my goal of having had every beer in this place by 2034. I'm not increasing my beers per visit average, so I need to visit more often!!! Please help.

Will post more details as we get nearer and as I (hopefully) get some responses.

    Also please update your RSVP if you're no longer able to make it. If you don't, we'll be straining our necks for 20 or 30 minutes trying to pick you out of the crowd, and likely scaring all the other patrons :-).

      Yes this is a good turnout, especially at this time of the year. Maybe it's the holiday spirit along with the desire to get away from the malls.

      I won't see it as I have no smart phone but I'm sure I can ask someone in the group to check.

    BTW if anyone else wants to pop in, please feel free to do so with or without notice here. I do not have reservations and I can definitely handle a few more. Thx.

    Okay here's the meetup plan. There are 2 entrances. As you're facing the venue, enter using the entrance on the right and go straight towards the back of the room (which really isn't far). I'll try to find a seat in one of the booths in that area or I'll be standing around there.

    The Ballston metro stop is 3 short blocks away. If you're driving, I'd recommend parking at Ballston mall, slightly further away than the metro but it's only $1 for up to 3 hours. If you enjoy the battle over street parking, I'd recommend trolling the streets N of Fairfax Dr & E of Glebe Rd, e.g., Vermont, Vernon, Utah, Taylor, Stuart, 11th St N, etc. It's residential & mostly without meters. You might end up pretty close.

    Weather tomorrow definitely won't lend itself to sitting outdoors and they probably have packed up the outdoor gear for the season anyways. I'll have a huge warm soft pretzel or two to share with early arrivals.

    See you.

    Perhaps we could consider Bier Baron at Dupont circle instead. They have over 600 varities of beer. I bought a German import bottle there the other night and it only cost $5.00.

      I remember that place from when I was a grad student in DC. It probably is a good option for a future event....

    Seems that it's taken forever for this event to come around... I'll try to create a good meetup location & let you know by Sat AM so we don't miss each other at the event!! It's a small place but I've been a bit surprised by how people arrive at events & fail to connect :-). That won't happen here!!!

    I have no smart phone to post updates after arriving, but my dumb phone # is[masked]-5579. I'm at the venue tonight for another event & I'll scope out good spots to meet on Sat. For all I know it could be packed Sat but hopefully everyone will still be out shopping & we'll be relaxing with a beer in hand.

    It's supposed to warm up over the next few days but it's scheduled to drop back down by Sat. Best case though is the warmth holds for one more day & we can hang out outdoors.

    This is a pop up group so do not hesitate to pop up, up to the last moment.

    Thanks & see ya.

    Thanks for organizing this. It looks great. I have a conflict on this date but would attend if you schedule any follow-up World of Beer events!
