Washington VS California!!

Then I read all the other events going on and I wish I had the vacation time to take the whole week off :(

That would be nice to attend! I vote for Washington but I think it would be a better fight if they could include Oregon/Washington vs Cali, then there would be no contest but that is my unbiased opinion :)

I don't know, there are some pretty good California brewers in that lineup. Not saying that I'm not rooting for the home-team! Yeah if they added Oregon in that it would be no contest. But adding any two W. Coast states up against the other is a losing battle for the third.

Well I just meant that California is still bigger than Washington and Oregon combined and to be fair they should combine Washington and Oregon. On the other hand OR/WA might have more craft brewers per capita than California does.
