The inaugural Central PA Bottle Share Event will take place at The General Sutter Inn/Bulls Head Public House in Lititz, PA on Saturday, March 5, 2011 between 12:00 Noon and 4:00 PM.
The event, dubbed “Imminent Liquidation,” will allow craft beer enthusiasts to dust off and bring rarities from their cellars and share with fellow BAs. Never fear, if you don’t have any rare beers, feel free to bring a favorite from your fridge to …share. It doesn’t have to be a white whale or an uber-expensive corked and caged, hand numbered, limited edition, once-and-done batch. Just bring some good beer to share with everyone!
While there is no admission cost, participants will be required to purchase a $10 gift card, which can be used at The General Sutter Inn or Bulls Head Public House for food, drink or other merchandise. Food will be available via Bulls Head’s Pub Fare menu, and will be pay as you go. You are not required to buy food at the event, however. So you can use your card at a later date or even give it away!
All participants will be required to wear nametags, which will be available at the greeting table upon entry to the event. Participants will also receive one FREE raffle ticket upon entry at no additional charge. Later in the afternoon, we will raffle off a few beer-related items donated from fellow BAs and area businesses. Please note that raffle tickets will NOT be available for purchase, and each participant will receive only one raffle ticket. ALSO, PLEASE PLAN ON BRINGING YOUR OWN TASTING GLASS. Please try to bring a small 4oz. to half pint glass rather than a full pint glass, if possible.
While The General Sutter does have a small parking lot in the rear of the building, space is extremely limited (only six spaces). Event parking will be limited to what is available on the streets, as well as in the school parking lot, also in the rear of The General Sutter Inn. Please plan accordingly and car-pool if possible. Make sure to bring change for the parking meters. There is a two-hour meter limit, so you may need to feed the meters throughout the afternoon. Also, The General Sutter Inn has seventeen rooms available to accommodate those who plan to attend the event, but must travel from afar.
