Anyone planning to go to the Great Northern Beer Festival ? Saturday June 11th 2-6pm. It's in northern WI, in Eagle River. I went last year. Good times. Some very good beers sampled there.
Have my tickets already. Sounds like a few new breweries will be there this year.

Same here. Last years' was a blast. I'm happy to see two other breweries that I've always enjoyed, Founders and New Belgium making it there as well. Great line-up of WI and midwest breweries (plus a few others). Tickets in hand, campsite reserved, and ready to go

Yeah, I hope the rain holds off too. Sounds like we might get a few drops later tonight, but nothing tomorrow. It's looking like a great beerfest! Stop by and visit tonight, Yooper and Timber.

Quite a storm here last night! I hope Odawg didn't drown!

We're leaving in a of hours- we've got a truck pop-up pick up camper, and we'll be across (sort of) from Odawg on the same loop. I'm planning on wearing a black Sprecher's sweatshirt, unless it gets colder. I'll be wearing glasses.

Yep, we're leaving in a few minutes, too. We'll have two small tents on our site. I think our site is one fifty something, so it sounds like we'll be in the same area as you guys. The other couple reserved it for us, so I can't remember exactly what number they said. I'll be on the lookout. Hopefully we'll see ya all there!

Happy sampling, guys and girls
