I've been accepted.

Yowza.

I'm in one of the overflow hotels (Holiday Inn, 0.5 mile from the convention center).

 

Who else is going?

We are working on getting large room where all forums can have a meetup.  This one, the AHA, NB, Morebeer, HBT, Reddit...whatever.  I'll keep you posted on details as it gets firmed up.

I won't be there but this seems like it would be a cool idea for those who have been around these forums for so many years.

OK, we have a conference room reserved from 11:15 AM-12:25 PM on Fri. for all forums to do meetups.  Save the time.  I'll post the room as soon as I know it, but at the very least it will be announced there.

- Maibock

- Belgian Dark Strong

- Belgian Golden Strong

- 60/-

- Pils

- Banana hefe (bananas in the mash)

- Doppelbock

- Dark Saison

- Cream Ale

 

We're also pouring hospitality suite on Thursday from 11am - 1 pm

I will be with the Cedar Rapids Beer Nuts (booth 50).  We have 20 beers, not sure what they all are.  I have a Citra Pale Ale and a "Dry Oranged" Wit.  Our booth is going to be an homage to trademark infringement.

Denny and I were at the on-line club meet-up.

So I'm guessing the intel on room number didn't get out to y'all.

 

I interrogated Katherine Porter Friday morning about the location and she put up a sign at the registration desk.

Guess that didn't help much. :blush:

 

Great idea you had there Denny.  Sorry the follow through didn't match.

Oh well, it's a learning experience...Maybe next year.

 

I don't plan on making SanDiego in '15.

Hoist one for me.

 

FWIW I was pouring at the MD brewers Guild 10 to 10:30.

Yeah, Frank, all I can say is that it worked a lot better than it did last year! This is my last year on the GC so I hope somebody else lobbies to get it done in the future.
