I've already met (sort of) motobrewer since we happen to both work at JCI, but I'd like to meet up with the rest of you also. Don't know if you're on twitter or whatever, but I'm mstodd66 on twitter, and m_stodd on untappd

I'm looking for drinking partners since I may be going by myself; I've still not found someone else worthy of the other ticket I won!

I'm not exactly by myself, but not with a group either. PM me for my phone number, and we'll try to meet if you want!

I'll be there for my first time. I get the added treat/danger of starting at 11:00 with an early entry pass. Delighted to say the least.

Another great Great Taste! As usual, Surly knocks my socks off! Not bad for a beer brewed in Vikings country! Go Pack! And Don't hassle me, I'm local!

I met a ton of HBT people, but NONE of you guys, unfortunately! I tried to text M_stodd back several times, but we never did manage to meet up.

I had a great time, caught up with some of my brewer friends as well as some people I knew from other events in the past. I saw people I knew from Ohio, for example- yet never bumped into local people that I knew were there.

Sometimes it's a very small world!

I had a great time with both old(ish) and new friends. The beer was great, and the weather was perfect. Hopefully I will get the chance to do it again sometime.

OK, was the Silent Disco awesome or what?

The only problem is that my headphones seemed to be 1/2 beat off from everyone else. That's the only thing I can think of that would explain my poor dancing.

I think there were about 500 reasons why someone would dance poorly at the silent disco!

499 reasons. Anyone try Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice! from One Barrel (I think?)?

Probably the worst beer I've ever had. Fun to try, though,
