Default Last Call- Any interest in a UP brewday?

I know there are quite a few Yoopers hanging around, and I wanted to see if any of you wanted to get together for a brewday? We could brew in town, or out at my cottage on a lake. I definitely have more stuff in town, but the lake would be more fun if we wanted to have families and go for some pontoon boat rides.

Cheeseheads and Trolls are welcome, too.

My wife and I would love to drive up there. The cottage idea sounds like a lot of fun. Not sure if I would brew, but I could bring a keg or two up with us along with some food.

I have no dates in mind- but June is packed full for me (because of the National Homebrew Conference, and a Canada fishing trip) so anytime after July 5 would be ok for me.

My daughter is going to MTU for some summer courses, but I don't know the details yet. If we can work it out, I'm sure my wife and I would love to come up for a brewday! (Well, more like I'd love to come up for a brewday and she would go along).

She wanted to see about making the trip some sort of vacation thing anyway.

I already told you that you're invited! You guys can stay at the cottage, to save on a motel. We're about 1.5 hours from MTU. We can incorporate it into a brewday, or just hang out at the lake and drink a couple of beers.

You could bring the boys. I won't bite them, and I'll take them fishing..............

Edit- and bring your Golden, since Toby needs a friend, too.

Dogs, kids, spouses, etc all welcome.

I'll provide non-motorized water craft, like kayaks and a paddle boat. If I stay sober, I'll give pontoon rides. Or ask Bob to do it.

Maybe I can talk the wife into pulling the camper up. Wouldn't brew but would bring a keg. Staying tuned for a date, but don't plan around me.
Maybe instead of everyone brewing, if someone has a large scale system close by they'd be willing to drag out, we could all just bring a fermenter and do a large batch.

I would bring the boys for a visit, but not a brewday. They are not interested in that. The dog is coming, though!
