I am holding my 5th annual beer gathering this Saturday. I've done this every year since I started homebrewing (except last year - went to Amsterdam instead ). I have six beers ready for the party and there will be food and beverage galore.
Beer roster :
Whipping Post IPA - American IPA 6.3%
Idlewyld Mild - English Dark Mild 3%
Honey Do Blonde - American Blonde Ale 6%
Fat Rabbit Pale Ale - Belgian Pale Ale 4.1%
Ground Rule Dubbel - Belgian Dubbel 8.5%
Utha Brutha Tripel - Belgian Tripel 9.2%

Do any of the rest of you do parties like this? It's a great get together of friends and fellow brewers that opens people's eyes to just how good home brew can be. Good times!!!

Have a great time!! I just hosted my 2nd annual Oktoberfest and it was a blast!! I had six kegs of homebrew and most of them were empty by the end of the day (2-7pm). My wife made tons of food - Sauerbraten, Bratwurst & kraut, Red Cabbage, Potatoe Dumplings, Black Forest Cupcakes, and on and on and on.....

Taps were Belgian Dark Strong Ale 8%, English IPA 8%, Summer Saison 5.5%, Citrus Saison 5% (dry hopped), Cream Ale 7% & Pumpkin Ale 4.5%. I tried to pace myself and still ended up a drunken mess Don't make my mistake lolzzz
