Ok folks, first meeting: Wednesday April 11th from 7-8:30pm at the Victory Lakes Clubhouse in Bristow. I figure this will be pretty informal but a solid start. I have reached out to surrounding neighborhoods so I am cautiously optimistic. The clubhouse gives us a venue that has plenty of space and allows us to bring, swap, and drink our brews on sight. Anyone who wants to volunteer with set up and tear down would be appreciated. I would like to see what level of interest we have so we can start to establish members and get this thing rocking!
Cheers

Awesome! can't wait! I can definitely help tear down, though not sure I can manage to get there much earlier than start-time for setup.

I'm in for the meet up. Looking forward to it...unfortunately my American IPA will only be in bottles for about 11-12 days, so I doubt they will be "ready".

Maybe i'll just bring a couple Founders KBS

Scott...looking forward to hearing about that hop spider. Only heard of people making them with PVC pipes. Good to know someone who welds near by too!

Got some buddies that may bring some. I have about 2.5 gallons of a hybrid amber IPA. It will be there for tasting if there is any left by then! I'm brewing a brown this weekend but three weeks is a bit young even with force carbing.

I could bring whatever Keg I'm working on at the time -- provided it's not horrible :P I just kicked the DFH60 clone, have been carbing the Hop Slam (which tastes NOTHING like hopslam), and may have a two-hearted ale clone carbed in a keg by the time of the meeting.

I can definitely bring a keg; I just don't have a portable tap. They're all ball-lock cornies.

I think it also depends on how many peeps we have. Kegs may be overkill I was originally planning on just bringing a 1/2 gallon growler.

I rarely bottle anymore. Growler may be the way to go. I have picnic taps and a portable charger to gas the kegs. I am going to bring some sort of small cups so people get a taste of what's out there. Not trying to get hammered.

Yeah I could fill some bottles I suppose...depends on the turnout.

I would personally like to have a bunch of small samples even if I can walk home. I don't get a chance to show off my beer gear often maybe I got a little excited.
