I don't know... I don't remember Kai bouncing off the walls of the hallway like a pinball.

Where are the rest of the pics?

Glibiddy, how can we get a bigger version of the one outside McNeil's?

I don't remember doing that, either!

I am really glad to see that the Berkshire and Wolaver bombers found their way out west ... but sadly no McNeill's ! I have a clone recipe for the Firehouse Ale !

I had a great time and wanted to thank some people. Thanks to Glibbidy for hosting once again and putting up with a bunch of drunken idiots. Thanks to Ray for giving us a tour and hanging out later. Thanks to Alfred for reminding me how much changes once you cross the NH/VT border. And thanks to everyone else for somehow surviving my snoring and flatulence.

The calm before the storm. Evanmars, olllllo, Kaiser, and Glibbidy waiting for the remainder to show.

[


More waiting with a couple of beers being drunk. Evanmars, Kappclark, Kaiser, Glibbidy, and Hippie.

[


The tour of Ray's new brewery, very much in the middle of construction. All the cars have been parked, serious drinking has commenced. Kaiser, The_bird, and someone's arm are visible.




After the tour. Kaiser and olllllo going over Kaiser's meticulous notes. The_bird drinking his smoked hefe? Glibbidy's pilsner? The beers were starting to run together at this point. Bottles are the table were from Kaiser's oxygen experiment to show cardboard flavors.



P.S. I really have to figure out how to post pictures correctly.

Pretty much everything has been touched now. Kaiser's bottles are empty and the sake has been cracked open. Food has been brought out, probably too late for general sanity. Kaiser is wearing a collander and doing pirouettes, I really don't remember why.




A picture of some of the empties. I am kicking myself now for not taking a picture of the back porch and the many kegs therein.



Kaiser reading Ray Daniels aloud while eating greens. Everything is pretty much beyond help at this point.




The_bird shouting at Hippie about something. I think it was about this point that various singalongs began, the only one I remember was "Hey, Hey, We're the Drunkies".




Somewhere around that point we left to get some air (and calm everyone down). Unfortunately, I forgot to take further pictures and am glad the olllllo remembered to take some more.

I had a great time and hope there were no repercussions for anyone involved.

My only question is, "When is the next one?".

There's not much that's more frightening in this world than hearing the phrase "it was about this point that various singalongs began," not remembering any of those singalongs, yet knowing that you are in fact one know to burst into song....
