I'm a complete newbie, but have noticed that there seems to be a lot of folks in the Boston area. Anyone ever considering organizing a get together for people in the area so that we could all meet, share a beer, talk?

Let me know if there is any interest, and forgive me in advance if this has already been done and I am just late to the party.

Thanks,
Matt

There have been a lot of get-togethers out in the Western part of the state, southern VT, etc, including one at my place coming up on November 11th. It's a haul, but you're welcome to come join us!

I'm up for getting together out west, but I'm also onboard with any Boston area meet-ups and brew-togethers.
Also, the Extreme Beer Fest on Feb 15/16 is coming up --- would be kind of cool to meet up and do some drinking and critiquing with fellow HBTers.
Anyone know how to get tickets? The site says on sale today, Oct 29, but I can't get to a place where it lets me buy tickets.

How about at the Horseshoe Pub in Hudson, MA.? Nice place and they have 75 beers on draft.

Also, the British Beer Company on rte 1 in Walpole is a pretty awesome place, too. I haven't been out to the Horseshoe Pub.

I haven't been to either place but I'd show up. I'm sure either place would be happy to have a bunch of beer people in the middle of the week.
