    Re: New guy from SF Bay Area

    Steve, Curtis,

    I'm in! Would love to do some whiskey tasting especially with people who have more knowledge than I (which is just about everyone).

    Spoke with someone at Acme about their Sunday tasting (Willett, Michters, St George, Charbay & Nikka). He said whatever isn't poured at the meet & greet they will have on the shelves and available until empty.

    Weekday evening?

    Weekday evening works with me. I'd love to go try the Old Potrero Hotaling if its still available.

    Re: New guy from SF Bay Area

    Curtis - I went down to Acme on Tuesday with my brother inlaw and the owner (Jennifer) set us up. Tried the St George, Willett 9yo, samples of a Jamacian Rum a couple of Scotch's and a Charbay she was given straight out of the barrel. I'd suggest a Tuesday or Wednesday as it's not that busy and if available Jennifer is a wealth of knowledge (she's a whiskey geek).

    01/22 or 01/23 @8:00 P.M.?

    I might be able to join in if work schedule allows. Would be cool to meet some people.

    Curtis - I saw some Old Portrero down at Acme, don't remember which one's though. Do you know if Anchor Distillery has a tasting room? I know they have a room to host VIP events, but wasn't sure if it was open in general.

    Hey Hey, I'm not sure what Anchor has for a tasting room. I'll do a bit more research. I'm not going to be able to make it over to Berkeley this week. I've got a heavy work load.
