Here was my proposal to BrewSmith, but I'll open it up to the group for comments...

Quote:
I dropped the ball on the "Monthly Beer Swaps" thing a while back (Cheese was going to help me out, when all the sh*t with him went down, I kinda lost motivation). How 'bout declaring a "Style of the Month," then use that to frame both discussions and a homebrew swap? Maybe even a commercial swap...

Example; March is Stout month. We revisit and review some commercial examples as a group (Guiness, Young's Double Chocolate Stout, somebody's RIS, etc.) We have a Stout-Swap, either for homebrew or usual commercial examples (just a couple bottles). We have a "Let's talk about STOUT!" discussion, where we talk about the different versions of stout, what makes a milk stout different from an oatmeal stout, etc. Maybe we work on putting together a RIS recipe as a group (although collaberative recipes are always a cluster****)
Thoughts? Something to pursue?

By whatever power vested in me as a mod I hereby do nobly deputize Brewsmith to what is necessary to propogate this good and wholesome cause. Can I get a RDWHAHB?

Jamil's schedule for your review Brewsmith or we can go our own way.

I'm down for doing it whenever I can, based on availability.

As far as availability goes, though, if you can find it on this list then it's probably available everywhere.

How should we post our responses? Print of some BJCP judging sheets and take it from there?

I have to say, as a noob, I'd like to see a beer of the week, rather than a style. The more of us talking about the same beer, the more helpful for us noobs to figure out what ingredients we're tasting.

But, if y'all want to do a style of the week instead, I'm in either way.

I have to warn you that though, I'll have to pester y'all to find out what particular brand falls into, and is a good representative of that particular style. We don't have any beer shops around here, and it would be hard to find anyone knowledgeable enough to be of any help at the grocery stores where I'd have to buy it.

I'm all in. I work at a wine and liquor store that has a great selection of beers, so no sweat getting them.

I was thinking along the lines of using the Jamil Show as a reference. You guys just beat me to it. Jamil's schedule is every two weeks, and I know some styles are harder to find. What I might do is just cut his list in half, filtering out some of the harder ones to get, that way we can stick to about one style a month and cover several commercial examples as well as possibly do some homebrew swaps and do a homebrew tasting as well.

Let's remember, too, that there's two years' worth of old episodes. No need to specifically exclude something just because it was already discussed.
