That sounds completely do-able. It is really Hernando's call.

This is exactly what and why we are doing this locally. Nobody want to drop $100+ in shipping. Currently there are 4 of us and my batch is already fermenting. I can PM you later with the remaining beers for you to choose from.

Glad you horned in! Just FYI (beware!) most of us are in our early stages of our brewing hobby.

I am definitely down for a local 12 beers of Christmas. Does anyone have an idea about what they would like to brew? Some of them should be in a carboy soon.

I live in Golden and have also had some trouble getting into a club. Most of the clubs that meet nearby or fit my schedule seem to have stopped updating their pages. The bigger clubs like Foam on the Range don't fit into my schedule or require a bit more of a driving commitment than I would like.

Anybody interested in meeting someplace in Denver? There are plenty of breweries that would accommodate a small club, I'm sure.

Hey Sinkman it would be great to have you along. The majority that are in so far just started brewing this year so they are up for a challenge and enjoying it. I will post a new thread ( http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f227/local-12-beers-christmas-346641/ )for this as I unintentionally jacked this thread so my apologies OP, Riored4v. With a list of what's taken and available. I think the majority of us live close or near Aurora but I am sure we can find a common meeting place.

Thanks. Un-derailed. Still throwing that out there, though. I know Great Divide does a monthly meeting with a brewer where they bring out a few experiments and encourage discussion. Usually degrades into a bunch of people talking, but if you work at it, it can be a great experience. That could be a good place to start, club-wise.

That actually sounds like a pretty cool and like a fun thing to do.

Hi.
Not ignoring. Just considering what style to do. The weather is not agreeing with the beer I want to make. Too hot! But sounds cool!

Might be in for this as well. I've been brewing for a little over 5 years now, but i'm certainly trying to keep growing and expanding.

It would be great to have you along. Just check the thread if you are interested and let me know which one you would like to try.

I have a bunch of inventory, if anyone wants to trade. I am in southeast Aurora.

Rye Stout
Dry stout (more like guiness)
Caramel IPA with all home grown hops (Centennial and Cascade)
last year's Quadrupel Belgian
Apricot Ale from Williams
misc IPAs from last year
