    Any place to buy tickets online, or just call and put your name in? I might come up from Columbia for the day for this.

    I'm disappointed that "mystery cask" isn't in all caps. :slight_frown:

    I had a great time! All of the beers were delicious. It's tough to choose a favorite, but if I had to I think I'd go with Triple C's Smoked Amber with coffee and oak chips (I'm a sucker for both coffee and smoke). The Siren Noire with vanilla was also very impressive, and the Ginger Wildflower Witbier from Natty Greene's really hit the spot in this warmer weather.

    Good to see some of you guys out there, and thanks ssuggs01 for a great event!
