Too bad you won't be able to be up here for it. I know Rhoobarb is coming up from Chicago for this. Hoping a few more of the Chicago contingent will be making it also. I booked during Summerfest so out of town folks can tie this in with a Summerfest day and not just drive up, sit on a boat and take brewery tours and go home. This gives another option.

Hopefully more folks can make it.

Cheers,
Jason

I've been dying to do this- but I can't make it on June 28. I'm thinking August 9 is when I could plan to do it. (We're going to a Brewer's game on August 10)

Bernie- if you and Ann want to think about doing it in August, Bob and I would love to.

You guys going- please give us a full report! Last summer I was at the Ale house watching the boats on this tour and decided that I wanted to do it!

Too bad some of you guys cannot make it. Yooper, I figured it would be tough for you to make being out of town. Actually a friend of mine saw this tour on the Beer Nutz program and I decided to organize a trip based on what he saw. For $26 you really cannot go wrong. Hopefully more Milwaukee and Chicago guys will jump in here.

Jason

Back in the late 80's, I had this dream of doing a pub crawl via canoe.
I figured that some of us might drown or we would get some sort of bizzare canoe DWI, so I never went through with it.

Not to mention that if anyone fell in the Milwaukee River they would have to bathe in Star San to kill all the funk!!
