Have fun. I'm jealous. Wife is shooting a wedding today so I'm home with the kids. Hopefully next year though.

Well, Bob and I are home and wanted to say what a great time we had!

We had some very good beers, but nothing that was really outstanding. The one great "find" we had was Vintage Brewing Company from Madison. We went over to their campsite after the festival, and enjoyed even more of their Palindrome beer. http://vintagebrewingcompany.com/ That was a definite plus, and we really thought their beer was great.

It was great meeting Tiber_Brew for the first time! That was a lot of fun, and I'm already looking forward to next year.

We had a great time also. Lots of good beers, good people, and the weather was just right.

It was likewise a pleasure meeting Yooper and her husband, as well as Odawg in person this weekend!

Now it's time to rack my vanilla bourbon porter...

It was great meeting you also Tiber, and Yooper, always a pleasure. I think this year's festival was great. Too bad you weren't able to make it, lschiavo.

I actually found that the Red Eye's 'Red Ey3' was really good, as well as South Shore's Weisbock brew. If my phone wouldn't have got soaked, I was planning to sign on here and check out the thread Sat morning, but oh well. The rest of the day, and the festival were great. I was visiting with the Northwoods brewery at their site after the event and got to try some of their other beers, notably their IPA and Rye PA, which were really good.

Hopefully we can all meet up for your brewday this summer, Yooper. Houghton, Bridgefest-bound next weekend.

Yes, the "Red Ey3 3" was an excellent beer! I talked extensively with their brewer, and it sounds like we'll keep in contact, which is good.

I was also impressed with "Black Husky" brewing, and of course several of the homebrews there from LUSH club - particularly the jalapeno beer. I've got my sights set on making one now...
