Default World Beer Festival--Raleigh

April 29th, 2006!!

Anyone planning on attending?

Seeing we have such a good conglomerate of VA/NC folk, we should plan on meeting up!

They have 2 sessions, a day and night one, if we did it, what would be best? Either way if I went I'd be stayin overnight, so I'm game for any of it.....

I'd be interested in hitting a session. I can't check the link from work, but I'm guessing this is the one that used to be in the fall. I actually passed on it last year to go to one in Asheville which, IMO, is a much, much better festival but it wouldn't be conveniently located as this one is. I guess what I'm saying is that I'm game.

I'll tentatively say I can go. It'll all come down to the decision of the judge (aka SWMBO) as the time gets closer.

I guess tickets sell out extremely fast, so approach it soon.

My LHBS usually has a group bus ride down there, so maybe your clubs do somethign similar. Don't know if it invloves a ticket discount or anything, but might be worth checking.

My 'club' consists of BOSTONBREWIN', King Kai, and BeeGee. Aka: "GRABASS" or "GRAB T&A".

There are two official clubs down here that I know of; TRUB and CARBOY, but I've no desire to join either of them. I think BOSTON is with me on that motion.

I mentioned this to the judge as I left for work today and she seemed not only OK with the idea of me going, but wants to come along, too.

Let's organize and meet up. It would be cool as hell to meet some of you guys from VA and the other guys from NC that I haven't already met.

We'll all have to bring some HB to swap, so having an idea of how many bottles to bring would be handy. (you kegger-types can just bring a whole batch. )

Yeah, my chaperone would prolly come along too. Walker maybe we can talk them into going shopping or something.

Definitely bringing the homebrew! By then I'll have some 06.06.06, some LWPA, some honey wheat and some honey pale ready to bottle up with the beer gun.

I'm SO there. Now I just have to switch my schedule around, which shouldn't be hard to do.

shiiiiit... my lady will be right there swillling with us. That's her whole reason for wanting to go. She loves beer.

In fact, I picked up a case of various brews from the Carolina Brewing Co when the GRABASS club went down there this past weekend, and she's already had more of them than I have! (of course, I was sick with the flu sunday and monday, but that's irrelevant.)

bumping this to the top. I'd like to know who is planning to attend this.

Is VA in the house?
What about SC?

I'm pretty sure 50% to 75% of the GRABASS crew will be on hand, and we sure would like to meet up with other HBT.com folk for some quality drinking time.
