Just getting here too check our bear world. It should tide you over
Yea I love bear world. I was talking to the owner two weeks ago and asked him about supplies and he has no interest in getting into it. They still have a bunch of great beer though

If you guys are looking to meet up and have and trade beers we still might be able to at hops spot or maybe just line it up in another place.

I'm as new as you can get (Still fermenting my first batch!), but I'm located a little ways outside of Dexter. If you guys decide to do a meet and greet, I'd love to attend and see what I can learn! :mug:

Well as a rule of thumb weekends tend to work best for me. However I do need to add the disclaimer that between a career in public service and the shift work it entails, absolutely nothing is guaranteed lol!

I'm up for it. I didn't remember to follow this thread closely. Maybe we should get a Facebook group running. It seems that is a simply way to stay in touch rather than trying to check a thread.

Don't know. We have to schedule something I guess. If you guys pick a date and time, we can try and make it a common deal. I will create a facebook group if people use it.

I like the hops spot but I think it is a little small. I wish there was another beer friendly place we could meet.

Hey everyone.

Just stumbled across this thread and am currently wondering why it took me so long to find! Been in Jeff County since August and have been trying to network with a couple of people. Would be happy to organize a get together or even entertain the possibility of hosting one. Get back to me with some feedback so I can get an idea of how many people are interested.

Yeah Brian I think that your right...maybe we could rotate different locations? I am sure that I could use our fire station as a location, its beer friendly...or we can go to each others houses, or maybe back to the Wine Maker, like back in the day? ...I think we need more structure? Who has the Facebook page? Brewing again this week sometime if anyone is interested? Still need to figure out that PID??? Got 12 Rhizomes to plant and a new hop to build too!

Cascade
Centennial
Mt. Hood
Nugget
Sterling
Willamette

not sure if I will put it up back or maybe down by the road in the side yard close to a good source of water...will need a drip irrigation system I think, will be my mini hop farm test bed...doing it different this time...

Well I am willing to host the first get together. With this we can get a better understanding of everything. As of now I would like to get a gist of preferred meeting days/times. Please get back to me with this as well as any other ideas. Message me for phone numbers etc. I hope to hear from you all soon and hopefully we can get a set date for sometime within the next 4 weeks.

Well Thursdays and Fridays for me are pretty much the only days that do not work. Wednesdays and Sundays are generally my day off, however, Mondays and Tuesdays are not out of the question either. I would also assume that Sundays would be the best day for most people. Any other takers?

Sunday's are probably my best days, usually home on the weekends.

Monday = Boy Scouts
Tuesday = Third TUE no good
Wednesday = First WED no good
Thursday = Not good in Summer months

FRI and SAT can be ok too....

Well I do feel that Sunday will be the best day. I have a gig Sunday May 5 and mother's day is on the 12 so how about Sunday May 19? This also gives us a month to organize. Any qualms with that?

That date is open for me at this point in time but could easily be sucked up due to my sons Eagle Scout Project, but don't let me stop the train. :mug::mug:
