Default Bluebonnet... Who's in?

We are heading down early Friday. Ended up staying next door rather than the host hotel. Signed up for the Plano pub crawl. I entered a "Fruit Beer" and quite a few others from the local group entered others as well. Hope to see a good turn out. Cheers!

Never been before so I can't speak to what the best choice was to make. I assumed it would be a good time nonetheless. Depending on the outlook of the evening, I may stay at the hotel anyway

Ok, this will probably be a very stupid question, but...WTH is Bluebonnet?

anyone know when they're going to post the winners? I had entries, but didnt make it to the actual event. The "2011 winners" page says "results will be posted March 27th" ?

Bluebonnet is a huge home brew competition. It is a two day event of lots of great craft brew as well as home brew. There were over 1700 entries this year and I believe over 900 people in attendance. I was told that it is "the largest home brew competition in the world" [Jeremy Clarkson]

This was my first time and it was a blast. I probably tried over 200 different brews. I hit every commercial booth and every home brew booth there. I didn't try every beer in every booth but I gave it the old college try. If your in the south or in the general area, it is well worth the trip. Even if your far away it is a stones throw from the airport. Literally..... Check it out!

Not sure on winners. If you have twitter they supposedly posted them real time. If you IM me I can take a look on the feed. Cheers!

Thanks. I don't do twitter, I'd appreciate it if you took a quick look if you have a sec. I'll send you a PM.
