I was hanging out at Lift Bridge with Bacterial on Saturday and we were discussing the lack of tastings in our area. Weekly seems aggressive and I feel like people are busy enough without adding that in, but I think monthly is doable.

Ideally weíd have a regular group of 10-12 and whoever can make it each month shows up with whatever they want to share. Nothing crazy, just a part of a Friday, Saturday or Sunday (or mid-week if people prefer but I know weekends are better for me).

Iíll be in my new house in August, so Iím willing to host anytime in late August or September. If others want to/are able to host, that is great, otherwise I am sure I can convince my girlfriend to allow this to always be at our house. Since I havenít moved in I donít know how many people I can accommodate but likely 10-12, which is a good number for sharing beers.

If youíre interested, let it be known. Iíve met a handful of the active MN members but would like to meet more. Feel free to message me if you think this idea rocks but have some suggestions, if you think it sucks message joet and tell him he sucks.

Anyway, this is probably a bit early but Iíd like to get something on the books for September at the latest, so we can tell all the other people on ratebeer how epic our tasting will be.

New place is South of Surly off 100, near 394. Close to downtown, 8 minute drive from Northeast.

I have been messaged by others willing to host, so we could have rotating schedule at some point. Iíd like 10-12 interested people so we will get 6-8 people per tasting, since people get busy.

Definitely interested. We used to do them fairly often.

Awesome. I think it should start back up. lots of cool guys, tons of great beer and winter is boring when sober

I am always in, but timing is key for me since I typically always work weekends. With the right amount of heads up I am in! And my place is always welcome to hosting as well!

Kids jobs and timing is key!

we can obviously select dates that work for the majority of people, though there will always be conflicts for some.

I think we can wait until September unless a weekend seems great since there will be many beer fests, trips and RBSG between now and September
