What does everyone think about a Syracuse group buy BBQ/bottle share? Everyone here is so friendly and it seems like everyone genuinely cares about improving this amazing hobby. It would be a good time and we could all share our beer! I would def be up for getting a hotel for a weekend during the summer or possibly camping. Lmk what everyone thinks.

Does this also mean the group buy party is still on?

I would be all about it. Plus, I need some actual critics for my beer. But more importantly, I need to meet more homebrewers.

We have 1100 total nationwide, but the layoffs were out of about 700 in Syracuse. In my division of 300 we got hit by 18.

Wow, high percentage. Glad you survived, sorry about the people that didn't make it. Tough times...

I think that could be a great idea. I would do my best to show up pending I am available. The spring summer is a bit hectic schedule wise for me, but I would try to work it in.

I think fall would be better actually. I love fall bbq's. Something about the crisp air and some brews to keep warm. Regardless of the season though, I like the idea.

If it was combined with grain pick up day, I might be able to attend.

Grain pick up from 9-Noon. Picnic/party in the afternoon. Hopefully close to a hotel...drive home the next day.

I'm in either way. Fall does sound nice though.
