I must have EAC written all over me ;-)

Sirsloop is invited but I think he's got weekend obligations for work. We hang out on occassion and he actually joined the homebrew club I'm in.

Chrisknight is a guy I talked to a bit on youtube but I'm not sure where he's from. I plugged HBT and he showed up. Cool!

Yup, Philly is just over an hour, I just drove it. I'm also a short cab ride from the New Brunswick train station accessible from both NYC and Philly.

I'm still in as of now. Is it just you and me? I don't have any samples but I can bring commercial stuff...

I've got about 11 homebrew club members confirmed as coming. In fact, it was moreso a homebrew club event but I'm figuring it's a good way to meet some fellow HBT members and possibly get you guys to join the club. Some people will brew, others will watch. I'd imagine any non brewers would be willing to assist others, etc. Otherwise it's just an opportunity for folks to see other processes and equipment setups. None of them go to Brutus10 extents but some of them are pretty trick anyway. Many of these guys are award winning brewers so they're worth chatting with. There's also a couple mead/cider/cyser gurus doing a few batches of "non beer".

Unfortunately, I'm not looking likely. My wife started a new job this week and she has training this Saturday, so I have no one to watch my daughter. So right now it's a no, but if that changes, I'll let you know ASAP.

C'mon, Jersey folks - REPRESENT!

Jester's driving almost three hours to come brew with me and other folks this weekend. I've driven two and a half hours to brew and drink with Kaiser and Boston. Chillhayze and 2nd Street have driven even further than me.

Sh*t, I drove all the way to freakin' Virginia this summer, to see family in DC but also to hang out with Dude for a couple days. Olllllllllllllllllllllllo's flown clear across the country.

C'mon, people!

I'm in!

The only question I have to resolve is whether to fly into Newark directly on the FRI red eye and land at 7:56 AM SAT arriving at Bobby's at perhaps @ 9:30 AM

OR

Fly on the red eye into Philly and land at 5:40 AM and either rent a car, take a train or ride in with someone from the Philly area and be at Bobby's @ 8:30 - 9:30

AND/OR

stay in Piscataway OR Philly depending on whether someone steps to the plate on the Philly tip. I'm going to need to know in the next 24hrs or so.

I think that this is going to be an awesome brewout and it would really be fun to ride up from Philly.

C'mon. Who's with me?

I've asked one PENN HBTer already, but he has an excuse as his wife is due. He has a legit excuse.

This is some hardcore brewing commitment. It kinda makes you tri-state area brewers look kinda lackadaisical huh? Nothing like flying into crappy NJ fall weather.

Hmm... if I wasn't hosting Yankee Ingenuity this weekend, I might drive down. Yahoo! says it's only three and a half hours - a trip, but do-able. Maybe next time...

Ok. I booked in and out of Philadelphia other wise I'd have to connect through Las Vegas and that's usually trouble.

So, redeye to PHI, landing at 5:40A, I should be on the road by 6:30A.
Invite is still open to riders from PA.

I hope to arrive at Bobby's after 8A.

I'll stay in Piscataway on SAT and then drive into PHI on SUN. My flight leaves at 4:15PM If anyone would like to catch brunch or part of a football game let me know. Or if you want to give me some tips as to where I can hang out and have a few, my preference would be to slurp beer, free WiFi and watch some game.

Anyone know if the car rental is on or offsite in PHI.
