We'll need some beer first. A *lot* of freakin' beer!

That would be completely excellent! Of course, I think it would cut into your drinking time - it's at 8PM in Burlington.

C'mon, Jester, wouldn't you rather spend the night with a bunch of your homebrewing bros that with your uber-sexy ladyfriend? Wait, that's not helping convince you, is it?....

I don't have much for homebrew, but will grab a growler at the Portsmouth Brewery and stop at Elm City in Keene and grab one their too. I have several Dogfish Head beers I don't mind dragging up; a 120 min from '06, Burton Baton, and a Raison D'Extra. I can also grab some Allagash, Maine is just a stone's throw from me. I highly recommend the Black and Fluxus, I doubt I can score some Interlude, but will try.

The only kegs I have on hand are young mead and a poorly balanced sweet brown ale. If there is interest, I will take them along.

Is there any Hugh Malone still available?
I should have plenty of homebrew on hand. I would certainly appreciate the errant offerings available from your area.

What should I put on tap for the event?
Here are the choices:

  1. Imperial Red Ale- Single decoction ale bewed w/Simcoe Hops
  2. Altbier- My classic recipe
  3. One Love Pils - The original SMASH lager. 1 malt, 1 hop, 1 decoction
  4. Celebration Ale Clone- my try at a clone
  5. Pale Ale V3.1- an easy drinking house favorite.
Presently I have the my Bohemian Pils on tap which will likely kick before the 26th. So please choose three options.

Definately the first two. I'm bringing a simple, house-pale ale, so it'd be nice to compare mine to yours. Might bring my smoked hefe, if it's any good.

I've got one of those CO2 chargers, so I was planning on either just leaving them outside or keeping them in a tub of ice, then move the charger back and forth and dispense with picnic taps. I'm going to buy a sh*tload of the good beverage tubing so I can get a decent pour. We could always do that with any of your kegs that you'd like to sample but don't have room for in the kegerator.

I have ball lock disconnects for gas, and a picninc tap that we could use as well. I'm working on an extra tank of gas for us as well for another keg.
All this talk of beer has me thirsty.
We should also talk food as well. IIRC Verm, and Zero are Vegetarians, and I don't eat red meat.
I'd be happy to break the grill out now, as I think I may be able break it out of the snow bank.

I can bring along my tank if you want, and I've got enough spare parts ("T"s and ball-lock gas disconnects) where we could hook up a couple kegs to the tank, plus have the charger. I think the charger by itself would be fine, though. I just ordered extra cartridges for it. Let me know, it's easy enough to bring the tank along.
