    [link=http://www.quenchers.com/beer.htm]Here's[/link] a place where we could definitely try in the near future. Quencher's has over 250 selections, with over 150 imports from pretty much everywhere.

    Special thanks to my dad(who doesn't even drink beer)to alerting me of this place.

    I think I've been there a long time ago.

    I'd definitely be in for a return trip.

    Damn...I'll be in Lincoln watching my sister act in some stupid play...
    Having to go to that, instead of drinking with you guys is like having to ah hell, I can't even think of an appropriate simile there.

    Use your imaginations...

    Glad everyone enjoyed one of my favorite bars. Too bad for the exceptionally loud music, which would've been more enjoyable had the volume been at tolerable levels.

    Next beer club will be in April at my pad, with Scottish beer as our choice. Stay tuned for further details.

    Updated first post with next meeting info. Slight change in plans so be sure to read the first post!

    Next meeting will be at The Hopleaf which is a favorite bar of mine. They have probably around 100 beers many of which are incredible. The food is pretty good too. I guarantee awesomeness.

    Hopleaf is Legend. This is not to be missed. Even if you aren't a beer fan, this bar just might make you one. It is THAT good.

    Too late? WTF? You have weeks.

    Bring money this time. At least enough to sample the 90 min IPA. It is something they write about in Valhalla. I think it might even turn Le Peng to beer. I'm serious. I will buy him one to test my theory.

    I really wish a place around here would stock [link=http://www.stonebrew.com/]Stone[/link] stuff. That stuff is totally metal and totally awesome. Best bottles ever!!!
