    I will be there with a homebrew club buddy. May be a bit of tailgating by the RR tracks, but likely there will be enough goodies to sate every beer-geek in attendance, I suspect!

    Why have I not heard of this place? I've always commented to my wife that South Royalton looks like a cool little town (from the highway). I will visit in the next couple of weeks.

    Well worth a stop. Killer burgers, and incredible fries. ~20 taps of VT and regional brews. Good stuff.

    I'll be there. Going to be an incredible event, can't wait! Going with my bro and his new hubby, two burgeoning beer lovers from NYC up to Vermont for Christmas. I hear rumors of a cask of Kiwi tapped by Sean Lawson, some awesome HF brews and awesome food. Worthy Burger is incredible, I have no doubt that this event will be great.

    I'm looking forward to meeting Sam too. DFH was one of my gateways into craft brewing, it'll be great to meet the guy.

    No surprise the Hill Farmstead complete flight of Civil Dis bottles got the highest bid in the silent auction - $180 from my newly-introduced neighbor of Richmond. Lawson's was the runner up. Great event for a great cause.

    Nothing Crazy, a bottle of each of the aged fayston two bottles of the Kiwi two glasses and a four pack bag. I paid a chunk of change for it because it was for a cause and I felt like I owned Mr. Lawson... plus he signed the glasses for me which was awesome.
