10th Beer Club afterthoughts…

The 10th beer club was a blast! Thanks to all that came out. A few veterans with lots of rookies and friendship all around made for a great night. The beer and the discussions were phenomenal as usual. A large group were introduced to the wonderful world of sour beers, which was a huge hit. (I think I see a sour-themed beer event on the horizon!) Several rare beers made an appearance from the beer fridge, including Russian River Consecration, Russian River Supplication, Russian River Temptation, the 2011 Iron Hill Imperial Pumpkin, a Trappist Westvleteren 12(!!!) and several homebrew sours made by the renowned Ryan L!

Epic night shared with good friends!

Here’s all the goodness we shared at the 10th beer club.

Title: 10th Beer Club Meet and Greet

Wow! What a milestone. Never really thought we’d make it this far, but glad we have.

Description:

1. Bring 1 case of beer (24-12oz. Bottles or cans – min cost of $25 per case) in a cooler with ice subject to exclusion and previously shared lists. (See exclusion and previously shared lists)
2. You must like the beer you bring (and be willing to take home any unopened bottles/cans, if any remain.) Please do not use the club as a first time taste of your beer.
3. Beer can be any flavor, any strength, from any brewery, (providing #2 is true) subject to exclusion and previously shared lists. (See exclusion and previously shared lists)
4. Please label your cooler with its original contents. Note that by the end of the night, it will most likely become a variety of different beers.
5. You can drink from any cooler you like, including your own, BUT…Before you open a bottle/can from someone else’s cooler, you must replace it with an unopened bottle/can from your cooler. (Unless it’s your own, obviously!) This has not happened at the beginning of the several meets, so…
6. You can drink as fast or as slow as you like. (Slow is preferable. The more you drink at the meeting, the less you will be able to take home.)
7. At the end of the night, we will allow a final 1-for-1 exchange of unopened bottles/cans, and you can take home whatever is left in your cooler.
*8. Bring your favorite vessel (mug, stein, pint, yard, mason jar, etc.)

The hosts will be providing burgers and dogs.

Also, if you buy your beer @ Exton beverage for the beer club meeting, mention my name and the beer club, and you’ll get 10% off.

Guests (Limit of 2 adults per case of beer) are requested to please bring a snack food, a salad or a desert to share. Please let us know by replying to the invite.

Driving: Please do not drive drunk. If you “taste” too much and need to sleep it off, the host always has a place for you to lie down, no problem.
Start Time: 3:00 PM
Date: 2012-11-17
