Let me start this off by saying this is not my first voyage....I am however seeking the advice of those who have put in more time then myself.

I am bit of a beer snob/connoisseur and I enjoy my COLD 22 ounce microbrew after a lengthy day of killing/attempting.

So my question is what is the best way to bring this up to the
charter master/chef/captain/crew/ Tracy. I will be fishing the Royal Star on a seven day private charter.

Thank you for reading and for your expert advice! Wish us luck!

Thanks

Andrew

When I chartered a boat we could bring whatever we wanted onboard. A full cooler of glass bottled craft beer. We never thought to ask before but they didn't mind at all. We were very responsible of course but ya I don't think you'll have any issues.

I bring it on board, store it in my room and put a couple in the galley cooler mid day. Then suck em on the upper deck after fishing. Crew is totally cool with that! Enjoy

not your first multi-day but youre asking if ...
what...
1.the boat will provide your micro-beer
or
2.you can bring your own micro-beer on board
I understand that coors, coors light, bud, bud light and a few other Mexican beers are at my disposal the whole time and im thankful.

To be more direct, I am asking about BRINGING 22 ounce bottles of microbrews that I may enjoy at the end of a long day of fishing or at a break if I so choose.

Just so any doubters are clear, last time I fished I brought a 24 pack of 12 ounce microbrews onboard and asked the chef to stow them (a few at a time in the cold) a day prior so that they would ready to imbibe when I or my fellow passengers decided it was time to indulge.

My question is to those who have similar habits.

Thanks!

Heck yeah. Wine and other embibables are a tradition, also. :)

Boats typically have shit beer in the cooler. I'm not too picky after a long day fishing, but I'm with you - a bit of a beer snob. I'd say (like others have) bring your own.

My rotation includes Sculpin, Lagunitas IPA, Downtown Brown. Snob...

I've seen the wine show up during dinner time and have accepted it willingly!

I'm coming from Chico and am trying to vary the options a bit.

Thanks!

Call Tracy and ask her about "fancy beer" protocol on the Royal Star. She will take care of you...

Good luck on your trip!

Jeff,

Tracy is always very helpful, your right.

Thank you!

We'll do our best

This exactly was part of my last introductory speech by Andy on the Red Rooster. His recommendation for anglers in this same predicament ...bring a small soft sided cooler and all the fancy beer you'd like. Store it all in your stateroom.....maybe the cooler on deck? Use the ice from the ice maker to cool them down. Please don't put your private beers in the public coolers.

Side note. A few passengers rocked this system but there was the usual private beers in the public cooler. Not a big deal.

Nice rotation!

Sierra Nevada usually has some fancy offerings but it seems they are more focused on the east coast location this year. West coast specialities are not a focus it seems, no worries!

Best

I agree with Pangamaster. On my rides on the Star, I have taken a small cooler and kept my beers in my room or on deck. You can keep your private stock in the boat's cooler, at your own risk. On one trip, Jeff had a cooler of left-over craft/better beers someone had left from a previous trip in a separate cooler and was charging the same as the Bud Light, that was cool, but didn't find out about it until we were headed up. Last trip 2 guys from Alaska brought a truckload of beer, then drank all of the rest of the Star's beer and ended up paying for the whole boat's beer tab out of appreciation of a good trip

I recommend bringing your craft brews in cans. Much lighter and more compact, faster to cool. Also safer and much less volume of trash which matters on a longer trip. I found this link listing canned craft brews all over California, with a bunch right there in SD: http://www.craftcans.com/db.php?reg=California. Last year on the Polaris Supreme, the crew loaned me a 5 gallon bucket and my son and I kept our canned craft brews cold in our stateroom, with ice from the ice maker. We'll be laying in our supply this coming Friday afternoon, for Saturday embarkation on Royal Star with the Humboldt Fishin' Lumberjacks. Yeah, baby!

Sold the boat, now I just rent a stateroom on the EXCEL
The EXCEL carries mass quantities of Ballast Point. So that's not an issue for me.
Just make sure when you're drinking your fancy beer you stick out your pinky.

There you go Dave, I've pretty much rocked this system for the last 30 years. Still managed to drink a few of the boat's banquets. Quite a few.
