Anyone here planning on attending the National Homebrewers Conference June 21-23, 2007 in Denver? http://www.beertown.org/events/hbc/I just made my hotel reservations. There was talk on another thread about meeting up in Denver at GABF. This gives us a 4 month head start.

We should plan early for an HBT get together during the event. I've been out to Denver for GABF every year since '95 and love the city and the availabilty of some great Colorado beers. Particularly, Great Divide and Bull and Bush in Denver, Phantom Canyon down in Colorado Springs and Coopersmith's up in Fort Collins.

Would it be possible for HBT to get involved in some capacity? have a booth or something? Would it be worth the time and cost?
I know some home brew clubs do get involved.

If I'm lucky, I'll be in the middle of my product launch, so not this year.

I'm going. SWMBO even wants to go.

We should contact the AHA and get HBT recognized as a homebrew club, like Brewboard is. Technically we can enter comps under the HBT name as our hometown brew club. We can even have a booth at clubnight. That would kick so much ass if we could get a bunch of our members there.

I'd love to go, but I don't see it happening this year. I'd love to meet up with more HBT folks, but probably somewhere east coast.

Dude, do you have any idea what the requirements were for the Brewboard to get recognized as a homebrew club? It would be cool, well, just because it would be cool.
