RateBeer Summer Gathering 2012 – You Are Invited
RateBeer.com is my preferred choice in the big two beer database websites, some reasons being more obvious than others. Their community is world wide, and for the most party very welcoming of folks new to craft beer. Friend of The Full Pint Bobby has organized an insane 4 day beer bus tour of LA and OC, and has seats still available on this bus. It gets better, the two day bus tour cumulates at The RBSG Grand Tasting. For those who missed out on Woodshop 7 tickets might want to consider getting in on the Grand Tasting. While I’ve never personally been a part of the RBSG Grand Tastings, I’ve been told this will be as fun as a Woodshop tasting if not more fun, so here is your chance! Here is a note from Bobby below. Act fast so you can ensure your seat is saved for this craft beer adventure.

Every summer the users of Ratebeer.com get together for a weekend of brewery visits, bar hopping, bottle sharing, and general beer related fun.
