Hey Everyone,

I would like to let ya'll know that we will be having a campout in Texas April 3-5, 2009. It has been called Beer in the Backwoods in the past, and is back in 2009. In case you don't know, this is "The Ultimate Family Friendly Beer Event of the Year". The campsite location is about 20 miles due East of College Station.

This is a new "Club-Independent" organization that is putting this together and is called The Texas Homebrewers Campout.

The registration is all online at www.TexasHomebrewersCampout.com

We can really use the help to put the word out about this so that other beer enthusiasts can have time to put it in their schedules. That is why I am posting this here. This is a really active forum dedicated to the art of craftbrewing beer...so a great place to start if you ask me. If anyone can help let other Texas Homebrewers know, we would really appreciate it. We can also use help at the event, so if anyone would be willing to donate a bit of your time to make it more enjoyable for everyone...that would be greatly appreciated as well.

Thanks for checking us out, and we really hope to see you there! This is going to be a great tvent this year!

Cheers!

Jonathan

Is this at a private ranch or a public campground?

Sorry for the delay in my reply...

The site this year is a private ranch that is being converted into a campground that can be reserved for just such an event. The site can be different every year, but this one looks to be very promising.

We are really hoping for a diverse group of brewing/outdoor enthusiasts that are looking for a beer related event that is family-friendly and not centered around a competition. Sure, we will have BeerFest-style olympic games, but that's all for fun...and bragging rights I suppose.

Thanks for your reply, and we would appreciate your spreading the word.

Prost!

All of the information is on the website, but early registration is $25 per adult for the whole weekend for a rustic tent site, and $30 for an RV (RV sites will most likely not have hookups for 2009...if there are, there will only be two for the first year). Kids are free, and if you wait to register and just show up, it is an additional $5 per person regardless of whether it is a tent or RV site.

I hope that this helps clear things up, and gets some of you that are "on the fence" out to join us. This is a great time!

Cheers!

When I saw the title and the dates, I thought this was going to be something related to Chilifest.

Naw...there isn't any chili this year...but there is rumor of a salsa contest "brewing" in the mind of The Daypack.

Has anyone else been to this event before? I've been thinking about getting the family together but was wondering how "family friendly" the event was. I have young kids and didn't know if it was okay to bring them or not. We might be able to get a sitter. If not I might be able to convince the wife to keep the kids while a buddy and I go.
