Default Great Taste of the Midwest, Madison

Who's going next weekend? I feel like a little kid who's going to disneyland. This will be my first major beer festival and I can't wait.

It's my superbowl & christmas all rolled into one day - i'll be there with bells on. The one in Wisconsin Dells in October is pretty substantial, too.

I think I jinxed myself with these tickets. I was super excited to be going, then I wrecked my motorcycle saturday night. Now I'm so busted up, I'm not sure I'm going to make it. If I can get somebody to wheel me in, I'll be there.

Going. 1st time and can't wait.

P.S. For those interested, I have it from a reliable source that many of the participating brewers from out of town will be stationed at local establishments in the Madison area on Friday night. So if you are going and want a different setting or not going and still want to sample some of the more rare out of town wares, Friday will be a good night to tour the local beer snob type establishments.

For those interested, the programs have recently been posted. Looks like a good lineup this year, especially for the real ales!
