2009 Holiday Tasting Info

This is a beer tasting, if you've never been to one the concept is pretty simple. Bring beer; a bottle or two of something that you like; to share with the group. It doesn't have to be rare - expensive or outrageous; just something you like.

We're looking into providing some beer for those who attend. I want to keep this as inexpensive as possible for everyone. There's no reason for anyone to spend more than $15-$20 on this tasting.

If the provided beers fall through we may ask that you also bring a sixer of something. The reason for this is simply to have something that you know you'll like on hand. Since the "tasting beers" are shared, the pours per person may only be a couple of ounces to make sure as many who want to try them can.

It looks like there will be a decent turnout, from the amount of responses that we've received. Plastic cups will be provided but I'd hate for anyone to have to use them. If you have a tasters glass or a piece of stemware please bring it, you'll be glad you did.

Homebrew is absolutely welcome! If you've got something that you'd like to share please bring it. Give us a heads up if it's kegged so we can make sure we have the appropriate amount of room.

The Tasting will be held at the Irving Schoolhouse located at 1155 e. 2100 s. in Sugarhouse.

We'd ask that this be limited to "Beer People". People who know beer or are interested in learning more about craft beer. Please feel free to bring a guest if you don't want to come solo. But please don't bring cousin Ted because "he's fun and knows how to get his drink-on".

Speaking of "Beer People". Some of our local craft brewers will be in attendance as well as industry professionals. It'll be a nice opportunity for you to get to know them - and they you.

Absolutely no one under 21.

So here's what we have.

What: 2 bottle for tasting - 6 pack? for back up(maybe) - tasters glass or stemware - some snacks provided.

Where: The Irving Schoolhouse located at 1155 E 2100 S in Sugarhouse.

When: Friday December 11th at 7:00pm

questions: utahbeer@gmail.com

Cheers!

Crap. Working at 6am Saturday pretty much rules out beer drinking on Friday nights for me. Guess I'll have to save my last couple Uinta BBB for next time!
Have fun!

Douglas said...

^ Come on Rip, just stop by for an hour or two! It'll be fun meeting everyone.

As an aside I just hit the bayou for lunch and tried the Fantome Saison. Delicious.

Hey Mikey,

I don't think that it is too much to ask people who are attending to provide a small snack of sorts to share, as well as their beer. (chips/Salsa/dips/finger foods)

Unless someone else is providing food that is???

Carlos said...

I'll likely be there! Unless work decides to interfere.

I wish my porter would be done by then, but I don't think it will be... :(

Mikey said...

I'm going to provide a few things, Bug. If anyone would like to bring somthing, it would absolutly be welcome.

rip said...

Hey Douglas....would love to go, but work in the aviation biz. Got to have a minimum of 8 hours between last beer and work and I prefer 10-12(hours not beers!) Trying to get Saturday off or into a later shift, so there is an outside chance I can still make it.
