Default Calling All Greater Raleigh Area Brewers...

HBT's "Boston" is planning to brew on the morning of Black Friday (November 27th) at his home in Cary, NC.

If any of you in the Raleigh/Cary area care to stop by and meet other brewers in the area, consider this your official invitation.

  • Meet some of HBT's "old timers" from this part of the country!
  • Become informal members of our informal brewing club; GRABASS (Greater Raleigh Area Brewers And Suds Sippers)!
  • Drink beer before noon!
  • Hang out on the deck and listen to music!
  • Avoid overcrowded shopping malls!
PM me and/or Boston if interested and will provide you with the address.

Bonus points to those who bring homebrew.
Bonus points to those who are mediocre musicians.
Bonus points to those who enjoy listening to The Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan, The Band, and other classic rock greats.
Double and Triple bonus points possible!

Don't delay! Act now, and don't miss this once every month or so opportunity!

I'm in. I don't know how long I'll be able to stay. I've got family in town, but I've got a couple of CDs for Boston and I'd love a chance to sneak away for a bit and have a beer or three.

If we can corral not only Boston & Walker-San but also Professor Frink, Baron von BeeGee, Beerthoven, joebou4860 and some of the other Triangle GRABASS brewers this will be pretty damn cool.

What time are the festivities?

Chad

Cool. I was about to bump this thread since i posted it buzzed in the middle of the night and was sure it had just sank into oblivion.

Boston usually starts pretty early, but I'll let him chime in with an official start time.

I got nothing else to do that day, so I'll probably hang out for most all of the session.

I'd love to come, but I can't. Family is in town, and there is just too much stuff going on to get away. We should try again soon, though. (Holy cow! This is my first post in 6 months.)

Dang, I'd go, but I'll be in Tennessee. I need to start connecting with local homebrewers. Are there ever any bulk malt buys around here?

Sure.

Boston and I recently split a 55# sack of 2-row. I've only got about 5 lbs left from my half, so I'll be looking to buy more soon.

We also (one time) did a huge bulk hops order together. Ended up with WAY more hops than I could possible use (primarily because each "pound" of hops we received weighed in closer to 2 pounds.) I actually just recently threw some of that stuff away because they had been sitting in the freezer a couple of years and were no longer good.

So, yeah, we buy bulk every now and then.

KingBrian... I just looked at your profile and was surprised to see that there was a GRABASS group on this forum. I had no idea.

Clearly, this group is not sanctioned. I'll have to beat Evan down with a mash paddle.
