Glibbidy! Hippie! Vermicious! 2nd Street! ChillHayze! Kaiser! Evanmars! Everyone else that I'm forgetting... Boston folks, Connecticut...

Someone noted here http://www.homebrewtalk.com/showthread.php?t=34952 that the Green River Brew Fest is coming up in September. Methinks this would be a great time for us folks to re-convene over in Greenfield, MA, for a day of eating, drinking, hanging out, etc. Let's take over the damn festival! I don't know much about the fest other than it's in a pretty central location for lots of folks.

Seems like this would be a great opportunity just to catch up with folks again.

Anyone else in?

Looks interesting. I'll have to see what's going on that weekend but could be doable. Provided I get the wife to go and drive my drunken ass home.

I'm in. I already frequent this place for it's wide variety of assorted bottles. It's the closest place for me to pick up Stone Products (not sold in VT).
It's a pretty small place, but easy to get to in downtown Greenfield. Heck, I'll probably plan on riding my bike down to Greenfield that day, and have my wife leave the kids off with the in-laws.
I'll email Sam Calagione and see if he's going to be in the area that weekend.

There's no Stone in VT? I swear I've seen Stone Smoked Porter in Bennington (Beverage Den)

If you get freakin' Sam Calagione to meet us... well... wow. Just the fact that you COULD makes me envious!

I've emailed the good Kaiser, I don't think he's been on the forums in a couple months.

No Stone in VT. Michael Saklad assures me they are working on it.

If we can generate enough interest I can check in with the guys at BBC to see if we might be able to get a private tour of the brewery before the event, otherwise public tours are 1:00 pm Saturdays.

I'm definately in favor of a BBC-voyage, as well. I've been meaning to get over there some weekend, but have not yet had the opportunity. Private tour = MUCH cooler

Wow, wasn't it only like fifteen breweries last year? That's a pretty damn impressive list.

Alright, who else is in?

Count me in...I've already penciled it in on the calendar...hopefully I won't get shot down by the SWMBO...a LOT of birthdays at the end of September. She hasn't said no yet

A lot of breweries showing up for only the 2nd annual festival...should be cool!
