Bump. I would enjoy meeting up somewhere for a beer or two. My weekends have been shot recently due to grad school work, but I think that may taper off for a few weeks.

On a side note, are any of you guys going to Hopfest?

I was definitely thinking about doing the hopfest. Trying to get some guys together....It's this Friday, the 16th. I will make it if I can.

I am hoping to make it. GF got sick this past weekend and I hope she doesn't pass it on to me.

I've got tickets already so I will be there barring major disasters. I am trying to recruit a few more people. Last year's was pretty cool and I heard that this year will incorporate a few local breweries.

I can't see Jeff not being a part of this, but Chama isn't listed on the website. If he's not brewing for it he should be there anyway. I almost got early tickets, but missed the Street Team. I found out about Hopfest on Wed over a Chama watching the Yankee's play. We've got to advertise better around this town. We should just setup a time to meet and see who makes it to join you. Pretty sure Ben will be there.

Yea, I knew that hopfest was coming, and I had the week, then I forgot about it, then remembered, then forgot, etc. I mean there is like no advertising out there, period.

Heck, it's not even on the city of ABQ's event schedule, or any of the event schedules for the city. Those usually seem pretty comprehensive, and the hopfest is conspicuously absent. The event definitely needs some more promotion.

I'm working on the kitchen pass. About half a dozen of my friends are going. A friend is having a party on Friday, but I haven't committed (although my wife may have). I should know by the end of the day whether I'm going to the hopfest or not.

What's the deal with tickets? I take it that I can buy them there?

I just checked the website and they say 72% sold out. I am going to see how the GF feels today/tomorrow and then get tickets. The website to buy tickets has a print at home option, so could just do that. I might swing by Chama and ask Jeff what the deal is. I told a bunch of people at work, but they never hang out.

Jeff has his Lager strain 2124 available if you email him and bring a clean growler before Friday.
