    Buffalo New York guy coming into the area from Feb.10-13th possibly. My company is sending me up there to train a new area rep... I will probably bring some bottles and a 4 pack of Heady Topper with me to pass the time. Interested, hit me up.

    Everybody in Newfoundland is up for a few beers. You just won't be able to understand them.

    Certainly would be willing to meet up and work out a trade. There's actually a
    Weihenstephaner beer tasting on February 12th at one of the local breweries. Send me a pm if you want to meet up or have any questions about the local scene.

    Son of a....
    As always, my company managed to screw things up for me. St Johns is completely dead...I am spending Monday night way way way up in St Anthony, then Tuesday and Wednesday nights in Deer Lake. Im still bringing Heady with me because according to BA, anything outside of St Johns is a beer wasteland. :(

    Hey Merc, drop in on the beerthief.ca forum and say hi, it's our local forum. There is also a Beerthief (one word) Facebook page. too bad it wasn't March, we have an event in Corner Brook on the weekend of the 8/9th. I'll see what members we have in that area and send you a PM. Are you connecting through St. John's? I'll be around town on a couple of those days and could meet you for a beer. I'm "beerthief" on our forum.

    I appreciate it....would gladly drive down to Corner Brook to meet up with people. Was planning on bringing a 4 pack of Heady and two Lost Abbey track set beers with me...something to keep my company in the hotel as bars seems to be scarce where I am staying. LOL
