Default Anyone going to Splitrock beerfest 11/22? in PA?

I should be there Saturday..



Split Rock Resort & Golf Club | Great Brews Of America Classic Beer Festival

The two-day indoor festival, set in the beautiful Pocono Mountains on the dates of Nov 22nd & 23rd, 2008 - 12-4pm, the Great Brews of America Beerfest will feature close to 50 of America's finest classic and micro-breweries offering tastes of their latest brews. Musical entertainment will be performed on three different stages, while crafts and artwork will be on exhibition and for sale.

In addition, food purveyors will be in attendance offering selections of various selectable menus for you to choose from. Each attendee will receive a commemorative beer tasting glass to take home. Seminars on various beer related topics will be featured throughout the festival.

This event attracts consumers from the entire tri-state area, including the major metropolitan areas of Philadelphia, New York and New Jersey.

I have a couple free passes that I won as prizes from last year's competition, so I'm going to do my best to make it.... Probably on Saturday.

Might be able to convince SWMBO to make it out- probably Saturday.

I'll definitely get a couple beers into the competition, though.

Slightly off-topic...

On the website link, the pic with the beer on the web page?

What is that thing sitting next to the beer mug?

It looks like it could possibly be a chicken tender, or possibly a deep-fried placenta.

I might make it. I mentioned it to my wife last night. That is my birthday weekend and they've changed the school calender so the whole next week after that has no classes so we're considering our options.

Even if I don't make it, I may send a couple beers to the homebrew contest.

yeah, it looks like pop corn...or something that washes up on the beach after a storm.

My in-laws have a timeshare at Split Rock but it's always booked up waaaaayyyyy ahead of this fest.

I did stay at a spectacular chalet this past weekend about 100 yards outside Split Rock's gate. The wife and I are hitting the timeshare right after X-mas as well.

The wife and I have signed up for the Saturday Beer and Food pairing dinner and the Sunday tasting session. We're making a mini-vacation of it and are spending Fri-Monday in the area. We though about the Sat. aft. session but I read reports like - if you are looking for a frat party atmosphere, you won't be disappointed - so we decided to skip it.

I did send in a couple beers to the homebrew comp. so I may pop in to check that out.

It would be great to meet more HBTers.
