I haven't said that I can't make it
I'll have to see if we can fit in a trip to NC around that festival. I don't think I will have a problem convincing the wife since she misses her friends she had down there

I'll mark the date on my calendar.

What kind of post-festival are you guys thinking?

It's REALLY too bad the evening sessions are a less mature crowd. We could do a brewery tour in Holly Springs in the afternoon and then hit the festival afterward.

We need volunteers to host the after-party and a couple of designated drivers.

I can probably host and drive to/from the festival. However, if we come back to my place after the festival.... I will get drunk and won't be driving anyone back to hotels or houses at midnight.

I'll run the after party past SWMBO. We've got a couple of small kids here, but things stayed relatively calm at BOSTON's after the Oct festival, so I expect we would not be disturbing the little ones too much.

My turn to drive. Jeff, you'll have to drink for two that day.

Just a heads up to those coming down for the festival and planning to bring homebrew with them....

The April beer fesival is just over 10 weeks away. Plan your brew dates accordingly.


I should have Holy Grail peaking and a fresh-off-the-dryhops batch of Kaduva ready for April 28th. I'll probably push out another batch in addition to those two, because the Kaduva doesn't need to be brewed until the latter half of March.

edit: The afterparty is at my place. SWMBO is taking the DD duties. She might not actually go to the festival, but is willing to drop-off and pick-up some people.

Oh no! I think my in-laws will be in town during this festival. Either that or this is the day they're leaving. Either way, I probably can't make it now.
