What are we going to do for a booth/theme?

Should we put the HBT logo on Cafepress and have everyone order T-shirts?

Let's hear some ideas.

EDIT: I'll keep a running total of kegs/food items, etc. going for planning. I'll update this first post with the amounts.

I'll plan on bringing at least 2 kegs of beer (I'm driving), so once we get more I'll continue to update it.

KEGS (3): EdWort (1), ohiobrewtus (1), Clayof2day (1)

FOOD:

Keith said that he'd provide some stuff. An HBT banner, and some other stuff. I think we definitely need t-shirts (or those shirts like you guys did last year) and cafepress would be a good place to get them.

I'd like to have a booth with a theme and I'd be game to help organize it. I'm not creative, though, so I'd need you guys to come up with the ideas and I can help implement.

I think we need to do some kind of computer theme, I really do. Maybe the gadget gurus can come up with something cool to serve from. I'd recommend we ahve about 6-8 taps going.

As far as food, simple stuff. Cooking the pizzas last year was kind of a PITA, IMHO.

I don't recommend going the same route as last year with the shirts though, they didn't hold up very well. I don't see anything wrong with us putting the HBT logo on cafepress and everyone ordering their own shirt(s). Makes it MUCH easier. We have the option of putting a few designs on there, as well as different styles of shirts.

I'm driving in from Austin, TX with a keg of Apfelwein that will have been aged for over 1 YEAR.

Any local folks handling the draft systems? I can bring my 3 faucet setup. It's the newer red cooler on the right. It's not a jocky box, but just something to hold shanks & faucets.

I think we should also find a place that can get some business cards printed up. Throw the logo on there with the site URL.

We had so many people come to our booth last year that had never heard of HBT. They were kind of amazed at the concept of an online club.

I'll commit to a keg of EF, and possibly another keg if the consensus is that we need more beer. I'm driving as well, but the only help I'd be as far as a setup would be to bring my Sanyo and I don't see that happening.

Maybe the Cincy boys will step up for a Brewout. I'd consider flying in for that... splitting a batch and bringing an empty Corny. That's about the only way that I'd be able to bring beer at this point.

I have American Dollars. They still have some value and I might be able to make up for my lack of beer with it.

I guess that you could always see if someone who is driving could make one of your recipes for you. Of course then it's subject to the methods and practices of someone other than you, but seeing as how you can't bring a full keg on a plane (damn airlines), it's a viable alternative.

I think we will have more than enough beer just from those that are driving. I honestly don't think we need any more than 10-15 kegs. I'm not even sure we went through what we brought last year.

Question: I just ordered my kegging equipment literally 5 minutes ago, so I'm still pretty n00by. What's the deal on bringing a keg? How do you get it cold and serve it? Will someone have a jockey box?
