Hey Donna,

http://www.leinie.com/dist_or.html

Have you ever had Leinenkugel out of Wisconsin? Joy A is particularly fond of the water from Chippewa Falls, so maybe you and she would like their beer?

If you are already familiar with this beer we won't haul it over mountains and deserts, if you aren't do you like dark, medium, light? We carry very little in our cooler so we could put a couple of six packs in there to keep it out of the heat.

Leaving tomorrow. Going, going, gone. Last chance.

Nancy

I'm a dark beer enthusiast. I think others at the exchange would love to trade for an "import" from Wisconsin too. It's what makes the exchange so much fun, trying a beer outside our typical beverage area. I haven't decided what exactly I'll be bringing... so many choices!

Have a safe, safe trip Nancy.

Shiny side up, Greasy side down!

Ok, I guess the liquor store should be open in the morning. Will look for dark for you, and a light for others. It may not last as long as the exchange. You know some of us are coming quite early, we will be sure to save some for you.

I alway am excited to try a new dark, but we won't be there until Wednesday and the beer exchange won't be until Thursday, but if one happened to survive until we get there, that would be wonderful.

Well guys,

The liquor store was not going to be open before we got to North Dakota in the morning, so we made a mad dash into town.

Drat, I only got one six pack of dark. 18 all together. I think everyone will want the dark!

I'll save one of the coveted dark for each person in order of request on this thread....unless we drink them before then!

18 bottles of beer is about a year supply for us, so I don't want to exchange 18 bottles. Come on by out site early and help us drink up the non coveted ones early.

I only drink about 3 oz of beer at a time, so I need help polishing off my bottles.

Nancy

Talking

Being a native Wisconsinite, I brought a six-pack of Leinenkugel's to the beer exchange at the June Washington Gathering.

I purchased it at our Covington, WA, Fred Meyer's.

Prosit!

Sing with me, "Eighteen bottles of beer on the wall, eighteen bottles of beer, etc"

Okay, all this talk about exchanging beer made me go out and pick up the kinds I was going to bring for the exchange. I got one from Canada that I had to sample last night and then several other kinds I will need to sample before so I can tell everyone if they are any good.

Whatever works Linda! Hey, I like this idea! Think I'd better get to the store

When I was reading this thread my thoughts were:

18 bottles of beer in the car
18 bottle of beer

Drink one down and pass it around
17 bottles of beer in the car

17 bottles of beer in the car
Do you think they all make to Oregon

16 bottles of beer in the car


Well, you all might be jealous because I arrive on the 7th and Nancy and Fred should either be there or right behind me. I wonder if any of those 18 bottles will make it to Thursday the 17th. Nancy and Fred might be making a trip to the store.

We're going to do a little Geocaching. They are often hard enough to find without Nancy's beers in our bellies.

As a first-time attendee, I have a question regarding the beer exchange: I have purchased several bottles of a wonderful India Pale Ale from Rubicon Brewing Company, here in Sacramento. Trouble is, this beer only comes in 22-ounce bottles (and it is pretty pricey). Therefore, for a nearly equitable exchange, I would need to get two of the regular-size (12-ounce) bottles of beer in return for each of the bottles I supply. If that is something that can be arranged, I'll bring this IPA; otherwise, I'll see about bringing another beer in regular bottles. Those who know how this works, please let me know.

Thanks!
Steve

Steve, this is a loose group. If you think you can convince someone to exchange two for one... then why not! But, I think you'll have better luck (and get to try more brands) if you just get the 12-16 oz bottles or cans to exchange.

Don't be late

Hi all,
As other newbies (both to the gathering and fiberglass rv owning), we have a couple of beer questions as well. How many bottles of beer should be bring to exchange? I hear twelve and eighteen being bantered about - is that about par for the course? We are planning to bring beer from a local micro-brewery near us. Is there usually a particular type most people bring/prefer (dark, ale, amber, etc.)?
Thanks for your help - can't wait!
Karen and Leon

For the exchange we bring a six pack. The other figures were for predrinking I think. Now if Karen likes something different than Leon, maybe bring two six packs and then she can exchange for what looks good to her and Leon the same. Some like really light and some of us like the really dark stuff.
