    I love Peche N Brett, but just did this same side by side on Wednesday and Fantasia won in a landslide. Everyone at the tasting agreed.

    I'll be bringing a 64oz growler of BCBCS fresh from the tap, as long as we don't drink it along the 10hr drive to help stay awake...;) Plus I know several bottles that want to tag along for the ride. And probably a few Tired Hands growlers to help keep the abv down.

    I'm in for that...probably have to be in one of our rooms though. That conference space was nuts to butts when I showed up last year.

    I may have to hop down to the Hampton for a bit, mainly to meet some of you fucks. I don't even actually DRINK beer. I smell, briefly mouthswish and spit. Same with beer, too.

    Nuts to butts? Mouthswishing? I may have to go shopping for sexier clothing.

    with that attitude, it will also be his last. Mnbearsfan and my plan is to hit up Toppling Goliath on the way, so should have uber fresh nugs. My plan is to hit up Town Hall, Indeed, Steel Toe, and Dangerous Man that week for growlers.

    I'll be flying up from South Carolina to participate in DLD (missed last year, was at the three prior) and staying at the Hampton Inn. I'll bring up some Westbrook offerings and anything else from SC/NC I can round up.

    probably still have a couple of spots left in the suite if any one needs a spot on the floor. Hit me up if you haven't secured lodging.

    I drank there until around 2am....then woke up at 4am and stood in lines for 18 hours...best day ever.

    I fell like i helped the hotel staff (and several other late night BA's) clean up at like 2 or 3, someone may remember better... hit the DLD line at 6-7 am after that i think (shit gets a bit fuzzy).

    I think most of the tasting, er, drama (pronounced: "beers you don't want to miss") was done by midnight or so, with a few semi-private surprise gems opened after that.

    I'm going to do everything I can to attend. The KBS bottle share party was too much fun to miss out on this.
