i salute those of you who are back-to-back bottle sharing after the C&G slaying in DFW last sunday. Someone take some botteshare/anniversary pics and put 'em up here... and someone (noah) bring back a few bottles of RU-55 for me... yeah, it was love at first sip.
Seemed like Karbach BBA Hellfighter was a hit, everyone hit me up accordingly, great to meet everyone!
Thank you kind sir

I had a great time, but I failed to be a social butterfly like always and didn't introduce myself to anyone new.
Figured I'd pop in and say hi. Guess I met a couple of you when I stumbled on the tail-end of the bottle share @ JK this afternoon. I honestly had no clue the BA forums were here, as much as I use the site. Think I'll be stopping by a bit more often as I love beer, love to share, trades are great, and I love beer. Also, love beer.
Awesome bottle share. A LOT more people than I expected, but that just meant lots more beer to try. I think I fried my Untappd account. Talked to a lot of people, but dont remember everyone's names (except Eli, Daniel and Rob). Great day! Here's a few pics I took:
Big glass of Buddha's Brew in the Anniversary glass
Beer table during the mayhem
Dead guys all over the table
Thanks for the great day, everyone at Jester King, and everyone who made it out for the bottle share. Well done!
Yes, thats just about right.
I couldn't keep up - bottles were opening faster than I could drink.
Loose count I can see 103 bottles/cans on that table, not including that giant Arrogant Bastard (that was 9 years old and drank like a boss)
That 3l AB bottle walked off with a little Indian guy. He was holding it like a baby... I think he fell in love!
We're back in Houston after an awesome dinner at Foreign and Domestic. The spreadsheet versus the actual turnout was quite different. I'm happy I was able to share my 1 year aged Karbach BBA Hellfighter with a few of you as well. I'll make sure to bring more beers to the next bottle share!
Thanks for the bottle! Already cracked it open with a few mates and it was delicious
as you should have! cheers!
goddamn, thats epic. and i hate to use the word epic. wish i woulda bought tix before it sold out
Haha the guy in the green button down sweater is the one who walked off with the arrogant bastard bottle...
That looks about right, bottles were going faster than I could chug my glass. Had a great time!
Another great day out at Jester King and a great bottle share. Thanks to the entire JK and SF crew for working their butts off and putting on an amazing event. Happy Anniversary as well. Very enjoyable!
Had a great day today. And thanks to Matt and Eli for hooking me up with some bottles, it is much appreciated.
LOL. That's so many bottles it's a little overwelming.
Anyone have an extra glass they'd be willing to part with?
That reminds me... Hey, if any Austinites got a spare glass... hit me up!
I know someone on here said they'd see if the could obtain an extra glass. I'd like to have one as I couldn't make it out due to work.
I always say I'm not gonna drink that much, but everyone always brings killer beers and OD'd as usual. I need to remember to eat at these things. I had a great time. I asked about buying extra glassware, but they weren't selling the anniversary glasses.
My friend brought the 2004 Oaked AB up with us. I think I recall that guy asking if he could have the bottle. My friend didn't want it anyway, so all is good.
They were selling glasses at the end - $7 each. They had a lot left, so it might be worth contacting them to see if they'll still be selling them
I talked to your friend a lot - guy from Portland, right? Cool guy. Wish I'd had a chance to talk to you more. Next time. Thanks for all you brought!
Yeah. That was Dan. I'm glad he was there to drive me home lol. I'll do a better job being more social at the next bottle share as well.
I'm little annoyed to hear that they started selling the glass. It was later in the day when I asked them and they said they weren't selling them.
I asked around 230/3 when I left and they weren't selling them yet. During funk n sour fest, they didn't start selling till the last 10 minutes of the event.
Yea I tried asking too and they said no. I didnt end up leaving until closer to 430 and couldnt buy an extra one.
Weak! Me and two other people asked to buy another glass around 4 and they said they still had too many people that hadn't checked in... If they weren't there by 4 I don't think they showed up...
That is one stunning bottle share. I bet that 9 y/o AB was interesting.
Thanks so much for coming to our anniversary party! I hope you had a great time.
Yeah, I need one of those glasses. Someone holler at me.
If that was Dan, I don't think he was asked. We were laughing about it. He didn't want the bottle but did find it pretty amusing that the guy ran off with it like he was stealing a baby
We probably left @ 4:15 and I only saw 2 glass/ticket bundles left on the table. It looked like there were still a few boxes of glasses left though. You're right though, it was from noon to 4... it someone hadn't shown up at that point, they weren't coming.
Any possibility of putting any extra glasses up on the webstore?
There were several boxes still stacked up off to the side. And the party was scheduled from 12-5, so I guess they felt like people still had the option to show up at that point. I think it was like 4:30-4:45 when I heard they could be purchased.
Had a great time, nice meeting a few of yall. Shout out to Matt Chow for the bottle of BA hellfighter, and the genius little girls slanging girl scout cookies.
Guess I left too early Could have sworn I saw 12-4 somewhere...
Sorry. All the anniversary party glassware is gone. We don't plan on making more of that specific glass.
Former Texas "native" here, did anyone get multiple glasses? I have PNW stuff to trade; HotD glasses/tasters, Elysian pumpkin snifers, etc... shoot me a message.
