I should be able to make it up there this time Bill. Should we try making it a HBT group thing? Most of my week seems flexible at this point.

Great. If you can set something up I'll put it on my schedule...

You can always take the short detour off of I-80 and stop in State College. Check out the Signature for what's on tap. Of course anything in kegs can be sampled as well.

I could..., but I'd still have a couple of driving hours ahead of me...I should be by there between 12-and 1.

Are you going to be there for lunch?

I thought about stopping once on the way to York (taking 322 down to H'burg), but thought it would add 2+ hours to the drive.

I could arrange to be home for lunch. I'm easy to get to, just off of US 322. Maybe I could drag Zoebisch out too. He hasn't posted on HBT in a while, but we email each other and share the occasional beer.

Hmmm, maybe I'll force carb up my Scotch Ale so it is available by then. Also I have the sauteed hops beer still in the fermentor, but a sample could be pulled.

I drive through Rockaway every day on my way home. Krogh's brewpub is maybe 15 minutes up route 15 if we need a place to gather.

Hey Joe, what day could you do it? It would be cool to meet a few HBT guys with one long drive up North!

As far as I know, I'm free all week in the evenings.

nostalgia and I gt together for some brews this evening.

We had a good drinking session. I sampled his Watermelon Wheat, it was better than I expected...very nice; an Irish Red that was good in flavor and balance, but not on of my favorites, and a Braggot. It was interesting in the same way a Radler is, both beer and mead flavors intermingled in a nice way.

He tried a couple glasses of my Hefe Weizen and a Kaiserdom Clove of Rauchbier. I sent him home with a bottle of my 2 year old Barkshack Ginger Mead and a bottle of the Leap Year Vanilla Mead...not to be opened before next Leap Year.

Overall, I had a great experience meeting up with a fellow brewer.
