Boom.

Sorry to everyone that this hasnt been posted prior to now. If you can imagine, things at Perennial are awesomely crazy, and Ive been putting this on the back burner for a while...

So, details..

WHAT: Big Black Beer Bash 2013

WHEN: January 26th - 11 am to 2 pm

WHERE: Perennial Artisan Ales Cellar - The Corner of Davis and Virginia in South STL.

WHY: The Big Black Beer Bash was started by Drew Huerter (of Mattingly's, Schlafly, and now of Deep Ellum in Dallas). Its a get together of beer loving people, especially ones that love stouts, porters, and any other big black beer you can find, to share beers that are just too big and bad for you to drink by yourself. Its always been during the armpit of winter, at the end of January, its always drawn a solid group of people, and an outstanding selection of beers to share, try, and talk about.

WHO: Everyone is invited to this event.

IT IS FREE TO ATTEND, THE ONLY THINGS THAT ARE REQUIRED TO ATTEND ARE:
1. YOU MUST BE 21
2. YOU MUST BRING YOUR OWN TASTING GLASS
3. MUST BRING A BIG BLACK BEER OF SOME SORT
4. YOU MUST NOT ACT A FOOL


Perennial will be open during the event, so for the first time in at least 3 years, food will be available at the BBBB!!

That pretty much covers everything, but I am sure I will think of something, Ill edit this post, or Ill just post in this thread.

Oh, I know that Wolpertinger is also that day, but it does not start until 1. I hate having this on the same day, but with all of our breweries and their corresponding events, and our schedule at Perennial, this is what works. If you want to do both events, I hope that we have scheduled these so you can do so...

redbird - google docs again?

Let me know if you have any questions!

Cheers,

Also, as a first timer, what is the etiquette for beer to bring? I don't want to look like a show off, but I'm certainly not showing up with something I got at Randall's on the way to the event either.

The etiquette is that you bring something big and black. Seriously. But by all means, look like a show off. I don't think anyone will complain.

Well its cool until you bring something super badass and someone pops it open :o and you don't get any :twisted: .......then the person who brought it might complain, no one else will though.

I'm surprised you didn't recommend that he makes sure to get a pour of whatever beer he brings.

well you know... if you bring something super bad ass, and you want to make sure you get a pour of it... don't leave it unattended on a table with 200 other beers like a dumb ass.

I had 3 of them as it was. I split one with a friend at my house, got none of the one i brought to the BBBB, and brought one to the CP pinball party. Not to mention I got 3 full glasses when it was on tap at The Stable a few years ago. I am not hard up for some CBS.

Either that, or do the "Bo$$" style sample pour...10 oz from a 22 oz bottle.

My favorite part of this year's BBBB is the 11am start time. There is nothing better than an excuse to start drinking before noon.

How about setting a time for opening "big" beers, or a side table for ebay types? I thought it was a bit goofy standing around a table full of beers I wanted to try, waiting for the bringer to open them. I popped my few right away, they were terrible as a bunch (not expected), but were still drained in a heartbeat since they were some of the few actually opened.

I do think you should open only the bottles you brought and limit your pours to 2oz., just good beer sharing etiquette.

People should open their stuff when they are ready to. I'm just bringing mine in a cooler this year.

Trying to figure out if I can make this our not. My works Holiday party is the night before so it might be tough =\

But if I can make it, I'm thinking of bringing Hoppin Frog - B.O.R.I.S. and BA B.O.R.I.S.

Possibly bring Dark Horse BB Plead the 5th if I can get the trade completed as well.

Get some masking tape, put your name on the bottle and institute a simple "If you didn't bring it, don't open it" rule. That way everyone knows who brought what and nothing's opened without the owner knowing. If someone wants to open something and they don't know the owner, it's a great way to introduce themselves and get to know a fellow STL Hopper they didn't before.

Let's not forget that while we all love sharing and drinking great beer this is a great way to bring the community together and meet some fellow beer geeks too. Since finding STL Hops, I've insured always having good company around when I'm out and about.
