4414 SE Center St, Portland, OR, USA (Map & Directions)
This was pulled together on the spur of the moment, apologies for the short notice. A couple of us will be getting together Saturday evening to start batches of homebrew beer, and thought, what the hell, throw it onto IRL to see who else might want to show up. Although beer-making will be going on, the overall theme of "beer" certainly includes those who enjoy drinking it even if they don't get into making it. I'll be smoking some meats; bring other food and beer and we'll hang's just that simple, really.

I'll be bringing no less than 2 six packs of already brewed beer to enjoy while brewing our own (It takes beer to make beer, right?).

Yes, I should probably mention that the beermaking process includes weeks of waiting while it ferments and ages, so - no homebrews for us on this particular evening. Store-bought refreshments are necessary this time.

...But NEXT time, assuming we start a new batch before we finish drinking this eventual batch....

Dang, this sounds great, but Specklet and I are out of town this weekend. Have fun, y'all.

Glad to know my forlorn beer brewing kit is finally getting some love.

Apart from the fact that we never got around to actually making any beer...and the iPhone-vs-Android brouhaha that indelibly stained the end of the evening and we hate each other forever now...I had a completely lovely time. Thanks for coming!

Thanks for having us.

I hope the thing I was trying to remember was in an episode of The IT Crowd because I don't think doing a search on 'penis-based filing system' will get me what I'm looking for.

I thought the phone thing was all in good fun and left in good spirits! Thanks for having us, as always. =)

I thought so too; but as per my usual modus operandi I exaggerate for comic effect.

mimo: using my "awesome" powers of Google Fu, this is all I could find...don't say I never gave you nothin'.... (if the video starts at the beginning, jump to 7min 53sec for the relevant bit)

Further evidence that smartphones truly are evil little things....

Definitely an enjoyable evening, even without the beer making.
Next time, perhaps?

Yes! Yes! That's it! Thanks Greg!

Awesome! I wish I'd been in town.
