    Anyone else already excited for this? :D

    I feel like it's coming home, to where it should be. We'll have the CBC, WBC & GABF in one year next year!

    This is insanity. After GABF that year, I think the sky might rip open above the Convention Center and kick off the apocalypse.

    I think I might have to brew a special batch of beer in celebration. This might be my excuse to wait a year to drink my homebrew. Maybe an American Brett or Oud Bruin, might line up nicely with the NHBC as well. I think I'll call it "The World's Great American Craft Conference Festival Cup Beer" or "The World's Greatest" for short.

    I'm excited. I had fun in D.C. even though I got lost and almost pissed myself (what's new, right?). Lots of info floating around at the CBC. We hope to host a seminar and an exhibit booth next year, so I can't wait (it's, like, more than a year away!)

    Methinks a beer tasting is in order....

    I hope there are a tons of events around town during the week, kinda like GABF, so there's opportunity to meet the brewers. I absolutely agree we should at minimum have a BA tasting.

    I'm working on a proposal to send to BA (eh, the other one) about conference improvements/additions. One is a "free mingle" session for all the attendees (or just brewers). Since brewing takes a lot of time, it's hard to get brewers together in a big room all at once. They love to talk, drink, talk and drink....so make time/space available to them. yes?

    There are other ideas floating around in my noggin, knocking into the few remaining marbles. :confused:
