Your idea sounds a lot like GRABASS, but I don't think we casn set up something that is guaranteed to be "regular" in schedule.
I think the only people you'll find in the Raleigh area that are going to be quick to jump into group tasting/brewing/bullsh1tting sessions are those of that are in GRABASS, and we just get together when it works for us.
The current thing being kicked around is a group brew session, but we don't have a lot of details yet.
We'll make sure to invite you to whatever 'events' we have going on, and if you have suggestions for activities, post them here. If you stick "GRABASS" in the subject, you'll get the attention of the proper folks.
