The Second Annual Masstoberfest 10/3/09
OK guys and girls,
Time to start planning the second Masstoberfest. The NEW DATE for the party is going to be Saturday Oct 3rd

This year I think we should have a real homebrew competition in conjunction with the pigroast/BBQ. I'm sure we can get an adequate number of qualified judges between the Worts and SSBC. We can do it a couple of ways, either we do a no fee - no prize competition or we do a minimal fee - tee shirt type prize comp. We should consider wether we want to have the competition limited to people who show up (I think we had around 45 people at last years event) or do we open it up to non-attendees? I'm ok with doing it either way.

For those of you who haven't made it to one of our rather frequent get togethers, we do it this way. I'll roast a whole hog and have a bunch of brews on tap. The rest of it is a potluck think, everyone brings a dish of something and it all goes on a common table. Everyone is encouraged to bring some of their homebrew to share. (Wether we end up doing a competition or not, if you made it and are proud of it bring it along to share with us.)

Who's in?

yeah Paul, I'll try to be there again. As far as a competition goes, I'm game, but would be suprised to even be an honorable mention... I'll bring a cutting board this year also ;)

The next weekend would clash with GABF

It's up to you, Hip, but if I were you I wouldn't go anywhere near Alice's kitchen this time or it might get ugly.

Well, I'm not going to Denver and Masstoberfest don't cost $85 for a ticket so I'm not really worried that half the crowd that might otherwise come will be in the Mile High City. We'll have our own GABF, just smaller. (A LOT smaller, I hope or Alice will kill me!)

Sorry Paul, I know I told you I'd make it, But I forgot my sister is getting married the next day. I'll be heading up to NH on Saturday..#&^%**^!!!!!!I hate missing your parties....My only hope is my sister or the groom doesn't going through with it..

If you do change it. Any Saturday other than that one or any in OCT would be good..

Well, we'll miss you. I think you and JL have been to every one of these gatherings. We'll just have to have a beer for you.

Oh wow... a pig roast with a homebrew competition... what an incredibly original idea!! Lemme guess, you're going to make up some andouille sausage and have a big slip and slide too??

Why don't you just host this thing in my backyard too??

Should I invite my parents?

paulthenurse 07-31-2009 02:50 PM

Please tell me your sister is getting married that day too.

Cape Brewing 07-31-2009 02:52 PM

Nope... don't worry Paul... as it looks right now, I'll DEFINITELY be there!!!!

I would offer to bring the Duchess but I'm sure she'll be long gone by then.

All times are GMT. The time now is 03:30 PM.
