Empties!

So I went through most of the bottles from the past year and with 13 Beer Thursdays, The Night Of 100 Bottles, and other random events, we have hundreds of empties. I'm going to take them all to recycling this week, but if anyone wants them, let me know. Everything is in a case box, so you can cherry pick your favorites if you like, or just take them in bulk for home brew, decoration, or target practice.

I'll probably take them over on Wednesday, so let me know before then.

176 Different Beers in a Year

Well folks, the one year anniversary is coming up, and I just did a list of all of the beers we have had over the last year. There were 176 different beers opened over the 13 Beer Thursdays, with only 15 repeats. That's 191 bottles, and that doesn't count when we had multiple bottles of the same beer on a night.

I was kind of surprised at the beers we opened, but more than anything else, I was surprised what we didn't open. I know we've had multiple bottles of Dark Lord, different Surly Beers, and other that I remember, but they all only showed up a few times in the list. I guess it goes to show what we have been drinking on non Beer Thursday events too!

Well, I'm finalizing the list (there were a few pictures that were hard to see) and then I'll post it here, but here's a preview:

One Year Anniversary Celebration!

Beer Thursdays one year anniversary is Febuary 25, which happens to be a Friday. I say we hold a blowout night, wi th 30 beers tasted over 6 hours!

6:30-12:30 on Friday, the 25th.

Because of everyones schedule, I think BeerThursdays may become a Friday/Saturday event in the future, so why not start on the one year anniversary?

So clear your cellar and your belly. Pizza will be ordered, maybe multiple times. The kegs WILLl be flowing, and many many bottles will be popped. I want to make sure all of the founding member will be able to attend, as well as the many honory members who have attended over the last year.

Are you ready for an epic beer tasting night?
