Fall 2012 Bottleshare (part 1 of 2)



I've heard about "bottleshares" being pretty big on the West Coast, and I knew a few BeerTubers have made videos about them. But I've never been to one here in New York, so I decided to host one at my apartment. I got the other officers from Albany Brew Crafters to attend (Aaron, Don, Alex and Marissa), as well as my friends Shaun and Dave.

This went pretty long so I divided it up in two videos. In part 1 we drink:
0:30 Westvleteren 12
1:32 Russian River Sanctification
3:06 Elysian Avatar Jasmine IPA
5:50 Port Brewing High Tide Fresh Hop IPA
8:30 Ruckus Brewing Hoptimus Prime Double IPA
11:16 The Lost Abbey Lost & Found Ale
13:39 Shipyard Imperial Porter

Be sure to check out part 2 in which we drink:
Coney Island Barrel Aged Human Blockhead
Three Floyds Dark Lord (2010 vintage)
Rogue Voodoo Doughnut Bacon Maple Ale
My I-88 Raspberry Wheat with a jalapeno in the bottle
Various blends

Thanks to everyone who participated in this bottleshare, it was a really fun night! We're going to try to make them a quarterly event. The next one is tentatively scheduled for February.
