Back by popular demand (well, maybe not popular demand, but it's back)! Let's get together and try some various beers from around the world. Preference is for something that's not widely distributed. Are you a Homebrewer? Bring some samples. This was done last year in Chicago and ended up being a lot of fun.
How are we supposed to be bringing this beer to Houston? Last year I brought a few bottles with my carry-ons, but I'm guessing they're not going to let us do that this time around. And I'm not sure I want to put a 6 pack of beer in my checked luggage. -Walt Mankowski (waltman)
I packed mine in with my checked luggage last year with bubble wrap. -Jeremy Fluhmann (jfluhmann)
I've done this in checked baggage. -Michael Schwern (Schwern)
According to my carrier (continental) ... Alcoholic beverages in retail packaging may be checked as baggage. A customer will be permitted to check up to 5 liters (1.3 gallons). The alcoholic beverages should be packed to prevent breakage. Continental shall not be liable for breakage or spillage of alcoholic beverages. ( link ) -Heath Bair (Candybar)
I found a local microbrewery that sells their beer in cans, so I'll be bringing some of that. -Walt Mankowski (waltman)
When and Where is this taking place? - Matthew Black
When and Where
This is taking place in the basement rec room of Taub Hall (the dorms). Call +1.484.226.5157 if you need to be let in (that's Casey West). This starts at 8:45pm. We have ice and storage.
We need a few people to bring cups. At last year's YAPC that's what we did. That makes it easier to try a number of different beers without having to drink an entire bottle.
UNIBROUE! -Michael Schwern (Schwern)
Jeremy Fluhmann (jfluhmann) (not sure yet)
Walt Mankowski (waltman) Sly Fox Brewing Company Phoenix Pale Ale
Beth Skwarecki, also tentative - I'll bring something from the Ithaca Brewing Co.
Michael Schwern (Schwern) Beers of Portland, Oregon. Hair of the Dog Rogue, McMenamins, and others. Requests?
Karen Cravens (silver) Not a beer drinker (if you don't count cider) but I'll have (at least) Boulevard Pale Ale if Ricardo Signes (rjbs) and the PEP crew don't drink it all.
bennymack Most likely some more Middle Ages.
Marcus Ramberg (marcus) Bringing some norwegian beer. :)
Dan Magnuszewski (magnachef) Flying Bison Buffalo Lager

Matthew Black (Schafly(St Louis) Coffee Stout)
Kevin Falcone (jibsheet) Something form Newport Storm (the only beer brewed in RI)
Kent Cowgill (chargrill) Bringing some fine oatmeal stout from goose island, in case you didn't sample any last year in Chicago
Andrew Moore (amoore) I have some Mueller beer from Springfield, MO and some Diamond Beer IPA from Little Rock. I'll try to bring some of each.
ScottWalters Black Boss, Poland. Muahaha! But maybe you can't have it. It might be a bribe. Maybe the bribee can come...
Dave Gray Maybe a local beer store carries something relatively local to CO...
John Cappiello (jcap) looking forward to it. Thanks for donating your room Casey, #115 Taub!
