HCB Bottle Share

  • Porter's Pub 1250 Bowes Creek Blvd Elgin, IL, 60124 United States (map)

Hardcore Craft Beer will be hosting another bottle share at Porter's Pub on Thursday, November 19th starting at 6:30 PM.

This is an open event and everyone and anything is welcome. Bring a bottle, or couple of bottles, to open and share, mingle with other beer patrons, and have a good time. Grab something from your beer cellar or something interesting from the store that you've wanted to try.

We understand that events like this can seem intimidating to the newcomer, but honestly it is the exact opposite of the reality. Whether you know a little, a lot, or nothing at all about craft beer, everyone is encouraged to come out and warmly welcomed by all who attend. It really is an example of the more, the merrier and newcomers always leave saying the same thing: "Everyone was so nice and I actually learned a lot."

There is no cost or cover to attend the event, but we ask as a courtesy to our host venue that you order an appetizer, partake in one of the specials, other food or a beer from the bar. Just a way to say thank you for the use of the space.

A few things to keep in mind:
• Bring a bottle (or COUPLE).
• Do not worry about what bottles to bring and do not be intimidated by other "big" bottles that people might come with. Bring what you enjoy or what YOU feel is special.
• Share and Enjoy.
• Any bottle on the table is fair game.
• Don't over pour yourself a beer. Just take a few ounces, leave some for others. Don't Sweem the beer.
• Relax, have a good time, and be responsible.

We will see you there!
