So back in December, I got a message from a Buffalo transplant named Joe via BeerAdvocate.  Joe is currently in medical school at Stanford University but comes back home occasionally to see his family and friends.  He contacted me to see if there were any other BA’s in the area that wanted to get together around the Christmas holiday.  I gladly welcomed him to my house for my xmas party and share bottles.  Well, he came back this week and looking to get together again and maybe get a good bottle share going, so I rallied the troops and we pulled off an amazing tasting last night.
