If Jeff wasn't there because of a festival/vacation/Family or something I would question it. He is such a HUGE hop head!

Whipping up a batch of Green Chili Stew to get the GF well. Wish me luck

I'll be there. I will probably be the only one with a Sin City Brewing Company T-shirt so I should be easy enough to spot (that and I'm 6'2 with long hair). If any of you guys are in the Dukes, I may already know you.

I'm looking forward to tasting a few good beers. The brewery lineup is already way better than last year's.

Last year we were supposed to get a full-size pint glass, but the guy checking tickets said APD stepped in and said that it was too dangerous. People would likely break the glasses and use them for fighting. Somehow I doubt too many gangbangers will pay $30 to drink a bunch of hoppy beers...

That's pretty awesome. A broken pint glass is one of the worst weapons that I can think of. It's not like you can get a good, strong grip to really jab someone with like with a broken bottle. I'd rather have my keys, or a pencil.

I may have to try this at some point....It just seems to absurdly impossible.

What did they hand out last year? Was it plastic cups?

They gave us 4 oz. taster glasses that were actually pretty nice. They have the Sierra Nevada logo on them. I also got a Sierra Nevada T-shirt.

I'm not sure if I'll be there till 9 or leave early and get my brew going. I am shooting to get downtown around 5ish. Not a big fan of APD and downtown since they are everywhere glaring at you till you get in your car and try to leave. Those crazy days/nights are behind me except for a few occasions, but ever since I got hit by a drunk driver I don't take any chances. I trip over my rug or slip on the floor in the kitchen getting to the kegerator in the house.

Should be a good time and see you there!

Should I go, or should I spend the time and cash on getting the cold room finished and then have a brew party?

Pretty much none of my friends were smart enough to buy tickets beforehand....smart fellas They're going to show up and try to get in.

Brewpastor: Why not both?!!?

I didn't manage to see any dude's in a Sin City Brewing Company shirt with long hair. It got pretty packed though. We were there at 5:30, and and hit most breweries by 6:30. Early on, at lot of them weren't taking the sampling tickets, but giving you the beer. We needed a break, so we had some pizza. Went out for another round and split at ~8pm.

It was a good time. I really hope that they keep expanding it.
