2012 Craft Brew Drinkup
Date/Time TBA; to be held in hospitality suite
The Craft Brew Drinkup at Code4lib 2012 is all about sharing and enjoying good beer with fellow conference attendees. The idea is to bring bottles of your favorite beers.
While you're not obligated to bring local beers from whereever you're from, participants are definitely encouraged to bring beer that you think is special and might be somewhat hard for others outside your area to find. Homebrew is especially welcome. Sign up below with your name, where you're from, and list a few brews or bottles you're thinking about (but not necessarily committing to) bringing along. You can also request that people bring specific beer if you so desire, but don't necessarily expect that your wishes will be granted.
If you do not check bags or otherwise cannot arrange to bring beer from where you call home, you may be interested in buying beer from a local beer store. Some of those are listed here.

Packing and Shipping Beer
If you're flying to Code4lib, you will have to consider how to bring your beer. Some attendees in past years have packed beer in their checked luggage, and others have purchased a beer shipper that was checked separately as luggage. In any event, you will not be able to bring beer in carryon luggage.
The following are links to resources that provide info on packing your beer for transit.
