    It's still aways off, but this is the time of year that calendars seem to fill up quickly. Plus, if your camping, reserve spots soon as there are not many of them.

    Yup, yup, yup! See y'all there! For anyone on the fence, we had it here last summer and it was probably the best location we've ever had a meed up! Huge thanks to Joe for locking this down for us all again!

    Depends on how much I recover from 3 days in Portland at The Festival. Something tells me I should take that next weekend off from beer. Can't beat that view, though - from the ocean to the mountain-top...it's all good!

    that should be a kids free weekend for me. Still trying to pin-down my summer weekend plans with family & what-not, but at the moment, it looks like a good weekend to finally make it! Found out the ex-wife will be returning my old cellar stock to me, so will hopefully have several well-aged commercial & homebrewed beers in the mix if I make it.

    Just saw this, and have no idea what I have going on Saturday...but should I be free, is it cool just to swing by for an hour or two, shoot the shit and meet some folks? Got a bottle or two sitting around that I would gladly bring to share. Wanted to make sure this isn't too formal of an event, lol.

    You're worried that bunch of vermonters drinking beer in a state park to be a formal affair? ;)

    Come by, drink beer. It'll be fun. I plan on bringing:

    1. flanders red with sour cherries
    2. 100% mosaic hopped pale ale
    3. columbus/chinook/centennial pale ale
    4. older vintage BFM bon chien

    Sadly it looks like I'm not going to make it - but if there's a reason to miss it, I think I've got a good one. Reservations confirmed for Au Pied De Cochon in Montreal...

    I am thinking some time before summer actually ends we should get together and have a:

    "Session-Session" all beers under 5%.
