      Alright, here is the CURRENT list. I may add a few more but space will be the issue. I've already filled one large cooler and have another 24 beers still in containers. Luckily the mk3 Jetta has a large trunk.


      O’Connor Brewing Company (Norfolk, VA):
      -“Norfolk Canyon” Pale Ale
      -“Green Can” Golden Ale
      -“Great Dismal” Black IPA
      -“Red Nun” Red Ale

      Old Dominion Brewing Company (Founded in Ashville, VA; now brewed in Dover, DE):
      -Oak Barrel Stout
      -“Big Thaw” Bock
      -“Hop Mountain” Pale Ale

      Starr Hill Brewing Company (Charlottesville, VA):
      -“The Love” Wheat Beer
      -“Northern Lights” IPA
      -“Dark Starr” Stout
      -“The Gift” Winter Seasonal Bock
      -“Boxcar” Fall Seasonal Pumpkin Porter

      Williamsburg Ale Werks (Williamsburg, VA):
      -Chesapeake Pale Ale
      -Redmarker Ale
      -Wheat Ale

      St. George Brewing Company (Hampton, VA):
      -English IPA
      -Golden Ale
      -Porter
      -Nut Brown Ale
      -Pilsner
      -American Brown Ale

      Beach Brewing Company (Virginia Beach, VA):
      -“Hoptopus” Double IPA (22oz, 8.8% ABV)
      -“Sea Devil” Imperial Stout (22oz, 10% ABV)


      Let me know if there is anything specifically appealing to you and I will make sure to hold onto one for you. I'm bringing between 3-6 of each beer, except for the 22oz. Beach Brewing beers (they be pricey).

      I'll be setting up my 10x10 EZ-Up in the Country Inn and Suites parking lot for some much needed shade (as long as the hotel doesn't have an issue with it). FYI, SoWo organizers have stated that no EZ-Ups are allowed on the show grounds. However, off the field is fair game, as long as the owners of the property do not mind.

      I will probably be on site from around 3:30- 5:30-6:00, then its delicious food time.

      Leaving my house at 6, so most likely around noon. Would like to swing by Showtime to see the GTI and hash things out with Geoff if possible, but he told me he's got some things going on so it may not happen. Still planning on a 1300 roll time?

      1200-1300. Would like to roll out at 1200. C gets off at 1200 and was going to pick her up and leave from there. Geoff I believe will be at an ROTC event for JR. I am not sure if he had planned on possibly driving down on Saturday for the show or not [most likely not]. You will need to get there early enough to check out the GLI.

      MR LEE:
      Read your comments on the sign up sheet.

      What do you say you hold some of those Boulevard Brewing beers for me in exchange for my Beach Brewing 22oz. "Hoptopus" Double IPA (8.8%) and "Sea Devil" Imperial Stout (10%)?

      Melissa likes to get it in the Jetta, so we should be able to shave some time off. Yeah, Geoff told me he's got that ROTC thing going on, but said he may be done by around 11. If nothing else I'll see if I can link up with him while on the way home on Sunday, or just leave an hour earlier.

      Please save a pumpkin porter for me!

      My local store had a good selection of Dogfish if anyone is interested. Let me know by 5 and I will swing by and see what they have.

      Yeah bud, all their Brewhouses have the 75 on tap. It's a blend of the 60 and 90. I've have pretty much everything Dogfish Head makes. They just started bottling the 75 this year. I will go over to my craft beer store tonight to see if there is any over there. If so I'll grab a 6.

      Anyone want Yuengling? I know it's getting more widespread but we can bring some if there is a desire for it.

      No problem. I'm sure no one will be rushing to get out of there.

      It's a deal. What were the other Boulevard beers you are bringing? I collect bottles, and would like to add the whole collection if possible Williamsburg Alewerks has some complex high ABV brews, but they are a pain in the ass to find sometimes. I'll take a look tomorrow and see if I can find anything that would interest you.

      I picked up your 22's today along side a 4pk/12oz of Dark Truth and a 4pk/12oz Double Wide IPA. I also got a 12pk sampler of their regular brew (wheat, ipa, stout, etc...)

      I won't have the full Smoked Stack series, but I think you can order online if you're collecting!

      Bought a $64 mixed 12 pack, I think I'm good. Just FYI I got a Dogfish Head Worldwide Stout. Look it up, entertaining interesting offers

      I'll be bringing my Georgia favorites from Sweetwater and Terrapin breweries. I'll also have a couple rare 22s from the collection as well as a few growlers yet to be determined.

      Here's what I'll have with me.

      Columbus Brewing IPA
      Columbus Brewing Summer Teeth
      The growler is not Fat Heads - it's Columbus Brewing Bodhi (double IPA)

      I'm going to stop by the local whole foods (best place here to get all the locals at once) tomorrow and see what they have. I'm coming for the day on Saturday, and would love to trade for some great beers. I update the google doc when I know what I'm bringing. All the Big River Brewery items are for sure available since they are headquartered here. At times there are some other more rare items as well. Unfortunately our best local brewery, the Terminal Brewhouse, doesn't bottle, but if you are ever in the area, definitely check it out. Great burgers too.

      Its almost timez. Finishing up some mexican and will be setting up atthe Country Inn and Suites shortly. Once i get back over there i will pick out a suitable location. Regardless, Look for the EZ up. Thinking the shaded/grassy area on the side of the building. Look forward to seeing everyone there.

      Sorry I missed you all. Too much sun at the show, I was done. I still have some resurrection if anyone is around tomorrow. Im at the riverbend, there are benches and shade. We'll be out chilling so come by. We have the mk2 with a pink bull on the roof.

      Great time! Glad to meet everyone and thank you so much for all the great brews we traded, I hope everyone liked the stuff I brought as much as I liked the good brews I recieved! The Columbus double IPA was amazing! And a special thanks to the guy from ross-tech with his home brews. The Volksbrau (Doppel Bock?) was really good! Excellent time, hope to be back next year with some new offerings.

      Thanks to everyone who came out. It was good meeting all of you and hopefully everyone had a good time. I know I did (although events around dinner time got a little hazy, I blame that delicious Columbus IPA )

      We will definitely do it again next year. Make sure you guys let me know what you think of the VA brews. I'll be sitting down with a few of yours tomorrow most likely.

      Stay Classy.

      By the way, I will bring you a local growler next year in exchange for the awesome Fat Head one you gave me. Know that it will be honorably displayed in my bar room.

      NICE! Really glad you guys appreciated the Columbus stuff. It was awesome to meet everyone and get a little drunk. Thanks again for organizing Zack.

      No problem my friend. To be honest, I didn't even realize you had given us the growler until I was unpacking the car. Needless to say, I think the event was a success, haha.
