Your Beer2OSH Host - 2012


Beer2OSH is designed to enhance the camaraderie and liquid libations enjoyed at the infamous annual Beech Lister Margarita Party that is sponsored by Kevin O. after the B2OSH Formation arrival at OSH.


This event encourages the sharing of exotic and "full strength" Beers (not to be confused with any Beer using the word "Light") from your part of the world, to be shared, bartered or traded with others at the Beer2OSH party. Bringing at least a 12-pack of your favorite "premium/micro-brew/exotic" beer gets you ONE wristband to participate in the grilled brats & corn and liquid libations brought by others.


Still confused as to what qualifies as an exotic and full strength Beer? Click HERE


Don't worry, if you don't have enough useful load to bring an exotic brew, you can participate in Beer2OSH's eating and drinking camaraderie by making a modest donation to the "kitty" when you come through the food line.

Below, in the area where you see Bonanzas and Barons facing north, is the general area of B2OSH and Beer2OSH. Note: this is NOT a guaranteed location! Each year EAA Parking volunteers determine the location of the B2OSH group at the time of their mass arrival.

So far, we will have a keg of the infamous Shiner Bock donated by the BeechNutz Formation Flying Group. Yours truly will be bringing a few cases of Shiner Bock longnecks hopefully to trade again for a Pacific Northwest Lister's Alaskan Amber.


We will have our signature beer boiled Wisconsin's famous Usinger Brats and locally grown corn grilled on the Kevin O. donated monster grille.







Our Tax System Explained in Beer


Suppose that every day, ten men go out for beer and the bill for all ten comes to $100. If they paid their bill the way we pay our taxes, it would go something like this…


The first four men (the poorest) would pay nothing
The fifth would pay $1
The sixth would pay $3
The seventh would pay $7
The eighth would pay $12
The ninth would pay $18
The tenth man (the richest) would pay $59
So, that’s what they decided to do.
The ten men drank in the bar every day and seemed quite happy with the arrangement, until one day, the owner threw them a curve ball. “Since you are all such good customers,” he said, “I’m going to reduce the cost of your daily beer by $20″. Drinks for the ten men would now cost just $80.


The group still wanted to pay their bill the way we pay our taxes. So the first four men were unaffected. They would still drink for free. But what about the other six men ? How could they divide the $20 windfall so that
everyone would get his fair share?


They realized that $20 divided by six is $3.33. But if they subtracted that from everybody’s share, then the fifth man and the sixth man would each end up being paid to drink his beer. So, the bar owner suggested that it would be fair to reduce each man’s bill by a higher percentage the poorer he was, to follow the principle of the tax system they had been using, and he proceeded to work out the amounts he suggested that each should now pay.


And so the fifth man, like the first four, now paid nothing (100% saving).
The sixth now paid $2 instead of $3 (33% saving).

The seventh now paid $5 instead of $7 (28% saving).

The eighth now paid $9 instead of $12 (25% saving).

The ninth now paid $14 instead of $18 (22% saving).

The tenth now paid $49 instead of $59 (16% saving).


Each of the six was better off than before. And the first four continued to drink for free. But, once outside the bar, the men began to compare their savings. “I only got a dollar out of the $20 saving,” declared the sixth man. He pointed to the tenth man,”but he got $10!” “Yeah, that’s right,” exclaimed the fifth man. “I only saved a dollar too. It’s unfair that he got ten times more benefit than me!” “That’s true!” shouted the seventh man. “Why should he get $10 back, when I got only $2? The wealthy get all the breaks!” “Wait a minute,” yelled the first four men in unison, “we didn’t get anything at all. This new tax system exploits the poor!” The nine men surrounded the tenth and beat him up.


The next night the tenth man didn’t show up for drinks so the nine sat down and had their beers without him. But when it came time to pay the bill, they discovered something important. They didn’t have enough money between all of them for even half of the bill!


And that, boys and girls, journalists and government ministers, is how our tax system works. The people who already pay the highest taxes will naturally get the most benefit from a tax reduction. Tax them too much, attack them for being wealthy, and they just may not show up anymore. In fact, they might start drinking elsewhere, where the atmosphere is somewhat friendlier.

At Beer2OSH, one things for sure, everyone's beer is the same price!






Despite "Sloshkosh" 2010, Beer2OSH served up a record number of brats on Sunday night, just a little over 200!



Here is our Official Shiner Bock Cold Beer Machine (courtesy of Bo owner Rob H.)



Rob's keg cooler lost an engine in flight in 2011 and needed to go in for overhaul! Rob's flight test of his cold beer dispenser went well in 2012 so he's being invited back for an encore as "Chief Pilot" of Keg Operations

For 2014 Rob has upgraded to a Baron - going twin engine on us! After all, two is one and one is NONE!

IMPORTANT NOTICES (aka Rules of Engagement):


1. Please keep all your glass bottles within the confines of the Beer2OSH area and toss them in the trash bins provided. Stay close to the trash cans in our area. Broken glass on the ground can be a FOD hazard to people, planes and air mattresses. Thanks in advance for your cooperation.


2. Although, as originally conceived, Beer2OSH is a "private" gathering of members of the Beech List, we are a friendly bunch and have agreed to share our party camaraderie with other Beechcraft owners who have come to experience the annual OSH pilgrimage. We only ask that you bring a Premium Beer or be prepared to make a small DONATION to the kitty jar at the door (Al "D Enforcer" DeMxxxx the Texan from New Jersey will be our "doorman") to offset the party supplies costs! <vbg>
