Anybody from Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, or Michigan up for a brewday again this year in the UP? We have sleeping room for three couples (plus a couch) at our house in town, a little extra sleeping space at the cottage, plus lots of room for tents/campers/pop ups.

I think anytime ofter July 10 or so, through August, would work for me. I know we're a long way from anywhere, but I think it's worth it!

A couple of pictures from last years brewday:

All would be welcome, including pets. Fish fry and cornbread and some sides will be provided! Pontoon boat rides for those who want to live on the wild side will be available.

Sounds like a blast! Where's the Cottage at? My summer is pretty full and with working 1 out of 3 weekends it doesn't leave many options but I'll keep an eye on the thread.

It's in the central UP, on the Wisconsin border right off of US 2. It's about 15 minutes east of Watersmeet, and about 10 minutes from Iron River. It's on a small lake that doesn't have any public access.

I know that area a bit. I grew up in White Pine and my wife and I both went to NMU. That would be doable. It's only about a 6hr drive. I may be able to talk a coworker/fellow brewer (Flabyboy) into coming also.

Yoop, I will be out your way mid august, I will be stopping by to visit while up there, but I doubt I could pull off a brewday. I'm going to have a hard enough time getting my air tanks on the plane, let alone my brew gear!

Make it early to mid July or in August and you'd have a misplaced Canuck showin' up!

Throw some dates at me! I know Homercidal will be up this way but I'm not sure when, and HenryHill said he probably can't make it this summer. I'm busy on a Sunday afternoon (July 17 I think is the date) but otherwise I'm open to just about any time!

I'd love to come this year! My mid July is shot (weddings etc) but early July or August is pretty open.

What (besides homebrew) should I bring?
