These photos are from a Bottle Share we attended yesterday at Sophie’s Place in Redondo Beach. The event was put on by Adam’s Fine Wine and Liquor which is also located in Redondo Beach. I became aware of the event as I happened to meet one of the owners of Sophie’s Place a couple weeks ago, one thing lead to another and we linked up via Facebook. When I first heard about the event it sounded interesting enough, but I had never attended a bottle share before so I was not sure what to expect. As the event date drew closer a few beer names started appearing on the list. When I saw that someone was bringing some Three Floyds beer, I knew I had to attend.

So, what is a bottle share? Well, a bottle share is when a bunch of people get together, each bringing a nice bottle or two of their favorite beers, then everyone shares what they brought so people can try something new. I am not sure how many people came, but it was probably 20 or 30. Between all of us, this is the list of beers that were brought.
