I'll try and get my bock bottled up this weekend, it might be a little young still (brewed it what, three months ago?), but should be good. I'll also bring over a keg of my pale ale for sampling.

If I can make it, I'll probably bring along some espresso stout, maybe some copper ale.

I have the go-ahead from SWMBO to make this happen.

I'm going to need to get some more details as I will have to work through a myriad of logistical hurdles.

Among them:
Fly into Boston or Albany or Manchester via Philadelphia?
Weather may dictate what flights, etc.
Take the red-eye Friday and arrive Saturday morning or take Friday off and see some sights?
SWMBO has a cousin in Manchester, will she travel or not?
Rental cars, hotels and Brew pubs to hit.

Consider flying into Hartford if possible. It's a 90 minute drive on the interstate , that involves one stoplight (leaving the airport), and one stop sign, and three turns all within .5 miles of my house.
There are several convienent stops in the I91 corridor that could turn the ride to/from the airport an enjoyable event.

IIRC Southwest may flys direct to manchester from phoenix w/one stop? That is also a 90 minute ish' ride to Bratt. Cousins are always welcome at my house.

Flying into Albany inthe winter can be tricky. If the weather is at all suspect, that drive can be a truly whit eknuckle experience.

Flying into boston can get you a direct flight, but from there it's 2.25 hours in the car from the airport. Boston is not an easy town to navigate if you have never been there.

Brewpubs, well there are plenty. There is plenty of floor space at my house if you like. A rental car might be a good idea.

My latest Black Dog Ale should be ready - maybe a tad young

... sorry Bird, but have run out of Bird's Brown (which was a real hit over Christmas !)

Please PM to let me know if I can bring anything else .. I imagine Ruby Red will be on the menu !
