So, is Charlie as... uh... "odd" as the rumors suggest?

I asked Yooper to take my picture with Charlie. I had been talking to him for a few minutes and when I turned around, Lorena and Sandy were laughing their asses off. I asked her what was going on and apparently when Yooper took the photo, she became captivated with Charlie's body. It appeared to Sandy that Yooper was looking at Charlie's crotch! Yooper noticed that Sandy was looking at her strangely and realized what she was doing. Well, the story goes that Charlie had an interesting belt buckle on and it caught Yooper's attention. She explained this to Sandy and that's when I noticed them laughing. The photo was taken as they teased Charlie about Yooper staring at his crotch. We all laughed so hard!
A classic HBT moment!

I was going to go to Denver last year, but I had made plans over a year prior to go to an event in Alaska during the SAME week. So, I thought I'd go to Cinci this year. TERRIBLE timing again!!! So, here's to hoping for next year!

I was waiting to hear where it was going to be next year. I figured out here somewhere. I'm so in! A six hour drive away. Do we need to set up a HBT 2009 NHC thread already? I'll bring beer, even my small kegerator if possible. I've even got some family in Oakland, so I might be able to bring the family have them not be bored out of their minds...

I can't wait.

A couple of new photos were added to the photobucket account, from Jim Koch's address, last night's dinner and club night, and lunch today. We got to visit with OllllllO until approx 4 AM when some of us weenies went to bed. The first seminar didn't start until 9, though, so that left plenty of time to sleep. (the seminars have been first rate, too- it's really been a wonderful conference)

Some of my favorite photos:

So far, EVERYone I've met has been awesome. All the HBTers have especially been great. And, I've had some fantastic beer. Apparently we had over 600 kegs last night at club night, with 1000 people. That's right, 3/4 of a keg per person. Not to mention all the bottles that opened up. We had some crabapple wine, apfelwein, moonshine (don't ask!), and we opened up some beerswap beers. One from Brewtopia (thanks!) and Evan!'s Meph. stout to just name two.

Did anyone run into any Whales Club members on club night? I know Brad and Jennifer Jones were there but I'm not sure if they were pouring.

I know that everybody always says things like, "Great people, blah blah". But in this case it is so true!

I really liked everyone that I met. And I met alot of people. On Pro Brewer's night, I tried to meet everybody in the room. I think I did pretty well at that, but didn't get to meet quite all of them. (There were about 300 people, I would guess). Every single person that I met was great. I met a few "lurking" hbt'ers who I didn't know from their ID but got to know them a bit in person and that was great.

One other thing strikes me- there were mostly men at the conference and quite a few beers. I never heard any arguments or saw any conflicts. Now, crowds and large quantities of alcohol don't sound like a good mix. But in this case, I saw the biggest RDWHAHB attitude in the world.

Some very short observations:
The SWMBOs were wonderful. Now, so were the guys. But I really think that homebrewers (myself included) marry UP. We have to have the most understanding and best looking spouses in the world.

Overall, HBTers are FUNNY! I laughed so hard all weekend that my jaw hurts!

Ohiobrewtus is even louder than I am.

OllllllO's wife is a saint.

ChrisK is very funny.

Pseudochef looks like he's 12 years old.

Richbrewer is genuinely a nice guy.

I still don't like sour beers, wheat beers, or fruit beers.
