On a spur of the moment thing, me and the family went up and stayed at the embassy ($$$$). We caught it Saturday and left Sunday to come back down to hell. I wasn't all that impressed with too much, although the Golden Knot IPA was really good as well as Racer X and Mcminimin's Monkey house. By far my favorite was the Flying Fish Bourbon Barrel dubbel abbey. Man that was some tasty stuff. I also finally got to try Pliny the Elder...damn good stuff! My kid was being a brat though so we ended up leaving early

I was sad that the Pliny sold out on Saturday...

I only got 4 full mugs.

Was a great year, I sampled about 19 beers and liked most of them. (Almost all IPAs, no shocker there)

Sorry I missed you guys. I was there early Thursday and Friday. Hit a bunch of local breweries on Saturday as well as the brewer's party at the Pilsner Room Saturday afternoon. My first and last beer at the festival was Pliny. Also LOVED the Galena Single Hop Pale from Boundary Bay!

my !@#$!@#$ job kept me from going this year... I'm one sad panda about that! Next year I'm going and I'm trying that !@#$ pliny!! (and any other IPA, IIPA, Russian Imperial Stout and Barleywine I can get my grubby hands on!) When is it so I can say I've had my request for time off up for a year and I won't feel bad telling them to stuff it, calling in and going to this mecca of beer. (you'd think with perfect attendance one day wouldn't hurt, oh yeah, the next for the inevitable hangover) I just have got to know! I havn't been to ONE beer festival at all this year... I've heard of 5 so far and it's KILLING ME!!! So hard to get thursdays through sundays off...

Jobs can really cut into one's advocation. The Racer X wasn't quite what I remember, but I had a pint anyway.
