You're missing the better event man.
You made my heart stop for a second by saying Bourbon Huma.. I've been craving that ever since I had it a few months back at Forans in Detroit. It was outstanding. Wish they had it in the line-up!
Bourbon Huma at Summer Beer Fest last year completely blew my mind. It was a shell of it's former self at Forans if that means anything.
That is a tall order.
I was pretty disappointed Short's never brought it to Ashley's Throwdown. I wish they'd get that in a damn bottle. Next time its on the tap list I might venture up there, it was amazing.
So.... anyone going to be in/around Traverse City on 04/27? We are staying somewhat near Right Brain... Park Place or something like that. Not sure what we are doing yet. I'm trying to figure out if I should bring plenty of tasty bottles or what.
One more week, i'm pretty excited, this will be my first trip up to shorts. Im taking the old man we're stopping in Elk Rapids at Pearl's for brunch.
any of my troll friends going to this even interested in grabbing a bottle of Double Huma for me? I'll make it worth your while with SOMETHING, BCBS or BA Plead or something. BM me, please!
Me and the wife will be there around 2. Likely to miss out on bottles but should be a blast nonetheless!!
I live near TC. Don't know if I'll be free on the 27th, but if i am, I'd love to catch up.
BA Pt5? Deal
How early are people planning on lining up?? Will all the special bottles be available at 1PM and will you be able to purchase them to go?
The only bottles available to buy at 1pm are Aww Jeah. I'll probably get there a little after 1pm as there's no reason to get there before then.
Im planning on being there right around 1pm. Then im going to leave and come back around 5ish to drink some brews on tap and eat with friends and family.
cool, thanks guys.
Any idea how long these will last? I am speaking at a conference in TC so might try to convince the wife to drive over.
Is aww Jeah the only bottles they are selling to take home?
So Im assuming that if you don't make the party there is no chance of getting any bottles right? Id love to go but its just not financially feasible this weekend Im afraid
Edit: Oops, looks like the poster is too big to embed cleanly. There's a tap and bottle list here.
I'm guessing you can probably buy either single bottles to drink or six packs to take home.
really looking forward to AJ and Huma X. Dunno if I'll make it over though now. Wife will be coming home from the hospital around that time, and she obviously takes precedence. However, I may be free friday night if anyone wants to put together a tasting the night before.
So, big favor folks, for which I will pay in beer and gas money. Is there any chance someone driving up from the Kalamazoo region would be willing to let me hitch a ride back Sunday? My car is in ill-repair, and while I have a ride up (likely) from my PA friends, Kalamazoo is out of their way for the return trip. Would be a big help gentlemen, and much appreciated.
I would but we're leaving SaturdAy after we get the aww jeah
Not staying for the party?
I've got a damn bachelor party that they sprung on me for Saturday night. We're staying Friday night, picking up some AJ at 1:00 and staying for a flight or four. Probably leaving around 3:00.
Party doesn't start until 3:00. they are just selling the AJ starting at 1:00. :/
Yeah, its going to be a fast flight
If anyone in the Detroit area is bring back some AJ and is looking to trade, shoot me a BM. I've got a couple of goodies sitting around here and I'm making a trek to Minnesota in a couple of weeks and could pick you up something.
Leaving from Ann Arbor tomorrow morning instead of today now. Can't wait though
Anything fun going on tonight in Bellaire?
Yes, drinking at the pub! If you don't mind traveling a bit, the after party for the Short's to Short's paddle is open to the public. Lots of fun to be had. I'm currently on a boat in the middle of Torch Lake helping with the event. Beautiful day out here.
is the after party in Bellaire or Elk Rapids? Eric and Kevin and I are driving up today.
What is the cost going to be for the Aww Jeah and Huma X? Limits?
$60 a case for AJ. From their FB...
Elk Rapids is where the after party is.
At the bar now. Woot!
Man, I'd honestly take this party over DLD any day. Have fun everyone
AwwJeah! The time is upon all you Michigander's, Hoosiers, FIB's, Akronites, and Sconnies travelling to Bellaire! Yeeees! Everyone have fun, it sounds like a freaking fantastic event. And if the weather is anything like it is today on the Keweenaw, it's a perfect spring day for some beer drinking in Northern Michigan!
Edit: Oh yah and be safe!
Enroute from the UP!
I wish I was heading up there today.
Is the pub open for lunch?
