When you arrive, they put the kegs in a refrigerated truck until Club Night. They deliver them to your booth and everything. Just make sure the beer is carbed up enough to serve it. The hotel provides ice and big buckets too.

As far as the serving device, that is what we have to come up with.

We can also have some of us bring C02 manifolds so we can serve a few kegs at a time from 1-2 tanks. I have an extra tank (15lbs) that I can bring with me--that will be enough gas to last the whole night and then some.

We didn't empty the 5 or 6 we had last year.

Great ideas with the t-shirts, business cards, and banner. How about some bumper stickers as well?

I'm open to the theme and the Computer tap sounds good to me. I think I'm driving so I could bring a keg and a few other assorted things.

It looks like I may be flying in so I may not be bringing any beer.

I will be driving this year, so you can put me down for an if needed keg of Remember the Amarillo, this an APA that I'm entering that was 1.5 points short of the APA that got gold at nationals last year (even though I didn't make the second round!).

Edit: If I can get my hands on a 3 gal. keg (I'm not paying for one, I'd have to find one to borrow) I can bring something funky too. That would actually be really neat since its from the wood chips I got from Vinnie at last years NHC.

Looking forward to seeing you guys!

Hey everyone,

Since we seem to have no shortage of people willing to bring beer this year and since we didn't go through ANY of the kegs we had at club night last year, do you think we should try to get in on the hospitality suite? It would be a really great chance to get some exposure for TX beyond club night and it would be a really great chance to kick kegs that people brought. Just a thought, any interest from everyone?

I think we need to do the t-shirts even if we don't do anything else.

T-shirts will be easy--have someone throw the HBT logo on some shirts over at CafePress and we are golden.

ALSO--I regret to say I am officially OUT of this event. I'm mandated to go to a 6 week course during June/July. I can't get out of it--and I'm really not too thrilled right now.

Anyway....can someone take the reins on keeping track of kegs (I've deleted mine, so the count is accurate now.

You know, this is about the point where local Ohio people need to step up and start making some decisions.

Cincinnati is the host city and as such those that support us locally have to get a handle what they can do for us and what we can do to help them pull it off. I am more than willing to do what ever I can in terms of $$$, pre-event support in the form of shirts and other things that can be shipped, etc.

We desparately need one or two people locally that can receive goods, that will coordinate building something, find out what we can use to cook in / cook with, ect.

Who will be our Cincinnati committee, point-man, etc.

C'mon you know your city. What should we do? Should we all start brewing a Cincy Chili APA 4 ways? An Ocho Cinco Porter? A Police Brewtality Pale?
Can you get Adrian Belew or Nic Lachey to come to our booth?

What????


C'mon!! We're at 90 days people!
