Thanks!

Small market though: not too many of the good ol boys want to drink any of them unamerican import beers. They're too dark tasting.

I hope you mean when someone wants a sampler of tasters, and not when they simply ask for a taste of a beer before making their choice.

Most of the places I go I look at their beer board and figure out one or two I'm interested in, and then if it's not one I'm familiar with I'll ask for a taste of it to make sure I like it prior to buying a full pint and the bartender always brings me maybe a 1oz taster and I never get charged for it.

If I had to spend a buck, to make sure I wanted to spend 5 bucks on your beer I'm not sure I'd bother.

Rouge does it both ways.
They will bring me a small taste of something for free, but they have a deal where you pick 4 beers and they pour a 4 oz glass of each for you to try.

To be honest, I think the cheap taster pours are a good deal. I usually go through about 3 of the taster's of four beers and maybe a couple of the regular beers.

That is genius. It would be really cheap to open an additional tasting room in a different location.

That is if you're already working off of a 30bbl system somewhere

Obviously, but down the road or for a larger start up it would work great. My comment was more directed at DFH.

Definitely. The Stone Company Stores out here are a similar idea, different execution. I expect they'll be popping up all over the country soon. I don't think I'll get to a point (even if we're successful) where I'd want to be that big. That rich maybe, but I still want to be pulling pints for people whose names I know.
