DURHAM WORLD BEER FEST

I think we should do another HBT get together. Make plans now! I put the leave in the books already!

I plan on doing both sessions this time, maybe if we get a good group we can do the same thing we did last time, but in between sessions we can meet at our hotel room and sample homebrew and hang out by the pool or something.

Who else is in?

Well, we're due September 29th and I've already acquired a pass for going to the race in Charlotte October 14th, so I'm pretty much out of contention for this one. I don't think I could survive two sessions, anyways.

But have fun...it should be comparable to the Raleigh festival in terms of the beers available (or perhaps more since the Durham festival is more established), and the ballpark is a much better venue...a lot more space to relax and sample, less like being in a cow run.

It's only about 2.5hrs from Richmond to Durham, straight down I-85.
