Default Oshkosh 2018 - Third Annual HBC Beer Tasting - Sunday 7/22

The natives are getting restless, so it must mean it's time to officially announce the 2018 Oshkosh THIRD Annual HBC Beer Tasting - Sunday, July 22nd, 1700 at the NEW AWESOME HBC Pavilion!

First the foremost - Jerry Fischer - THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!! You are the real reason this is possible!!! Anyone who has access to the sweet nectar of Deschutes Black Butte, toss a bottle in Jerry's tent!

VOLUNTEERS - You are the second most important reason this event is a SUCCESS! Those brave enough to endure the thankless job of fighting off the thirsty restless masses before the 5pm kickoff, I need to solicit your help again this year! Anyone bored on Sunday afternoon who is skilled at putting warm beer in ice buckets is welcome to join our amazing team. DAN LANDRY - you will be missed! Rob, Paul and Frank - consider yourself on the list. PAINLESS - THANKS FOR STEPPING UP! CJ - Looking forward to sampling your cache of Alaskan beers!

Looking forward to seeing all of you again!

Hopefully my Alaskan beers won't evaporate on the way back home!

I'm planning to be there as well. I'll find something tasty to bring from New England. Looking forward to seeing everyone, hope to get there at the beginning this year, not the tail end like last year!

Thermos is in + 1, maybe +3. I'll have some yummy NEPAs to share!

We get to OSH somewhere around 1300L with a car and I'm happy to help out, Mike. Just let me know.

9 Days until the 2018 Beer tasting!!!!!! Who's thirsty?????

Dan (dweyant), Mark (skid) and Thermos, PM me your phone # and I'll start a group text. THANKS FOR VOLUNTEERING!


Same complicated rules as last year - why mess with PERFECTION???

1) Location - Same as the last two years. - We will set up in the West end of HBC.


2) Drop beer off anytime after 3pm to be chilled. Event starts at 5pm. Not 4:45pm. Not 4:55pm. 5PM. Please be respectful of the start time.

3) HAVE FUN and clean up after yourself. Jerry Fischer is a big reason this event is such a hit, and he has one simple rule - he wants the grounds to look as good after the event as they did before the event.

4) You've got to pay to play. Please only attend if you've brought (good) beer.

VOLUNTEERS! I need some. I know Dan (dweyant), Mark (skid) and Thermos are in. I could use a few extra. The pay is terrible, but you get to crack one open early

SUPPLIES! I will bring 200 Solo cups, 200 name tags, Sharpies and 20+ bottle openers. Jerry supplies the ice and tubs (THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU JERRY!!!).
