All I know is that she seemed fine (not drunk) and very rapidly became immobile/sick. And I think it was only 271 shots.

I'm home.

I had a great trip. The Walker-san dojo put out a great spread- Pulled pork, beans, brats. Thanks to Boston for taking me bottle shopping and lunch today.

So with those core GRABASS guys it's Always Something Special. You two really put the ASS in GRABASS.

Once again, I had a great time at the WBF.

Good to see olllllo, Nate, Joebou, Frink, Baron, Boston and Chad again, and good to meet capntang and his (allegedly) older brother.

I am looking forward to Durham in the fall (and this time I won't slack on getting my tickets too long.)

Special thanks to olllllo for bringing the magnet, house ale, and a bomber of Alaskan smoked porter. Damn, I loves me some porter....

Special thanks to Boston for providing the sausages and sides, and for rescuing my flat kegs with his CO2 tank.

We had a great time, too. Sorry about wussing out on the after-fest activities. Our daughter had plans that evening, so we'd promised that we would be home fairly early. Compounding the problem was that we didn't eat as much as we should have at the festival. I had been holding out for some of Ed Mitchell's barbecue from The Pit. They were supposed to be in the food area. We never could find them, so by the end of the afternoon we were starving. We ended up taking the kids out to an early dinner and talking about the rest of you behind your backs

It was great to see the GRABASS folks again and meet Baron Von Bee Gee, Nate and ollllo.

Best beer of the festival, in my opinion, was Jolly Pumpkin's La Roja, a sour Flanders red. Holy crap that was good. We need to look into a GRABASS oak barrel purchase and group brew day to make some.

Man, what a busy weekend. Drove back to Wilmington at 7am Sunday morning to help the bro prepare for a small gathering at his place, and ended up getting dragged down to the Obama rally at 7am this morning.

I had a fantastic time, as did my (allegedly) older brother.

It was a pleasure meeting all of you, and thanks to Walker and his family for the fantastic hospitality and perfect post-festival food.

Now I'm left wondering which of the fall festivals I'll be able to swing.
