For future shows, I'm starting to plan now and intend to create a new, unique basket each year based on my beer travels. We are going to GALA in Denver and I hope to pick up some bottles there. Also, we're going to be in Belgium and France this summer, so I'm hoping to find some excellent local-only beers that aren't available in the US. For those who know a bit about cellaring, I will be looking for high alcohol, big and/or hoppy beers that will age well until spring for the cabaret. With those bottles I find on the road, I'm leaning towards filling out the collection with Minnesota craft beer favorites. Maybe a combination of local beers traveled to Minnesota by me will be interesting for the auction. But, the plan is very amendable, and I will simply look for the best beers to include in the collection and let it grow organically through my beer experiences.
