I know there are a lot of us here, so we should get together to drink and plan a group brewday. Brewiz and I were talking on the chat and thought a mini-pubcrawl in Decatur would be good drinkin grounds. What I propose:

Taco Mac
The Brick Store and
Twains Brewpub

Twains does cask conditioned ales on Wednesday, but I have a feeling that Wednesdays might be tough since many of us live quite a way from Decatur. They do beer specials on other days of the week. They also have pool and darts.

The Brickstore is great, if you live in the area and have never been you are missing out. Not a huge slection but have some harder to find draft beer and a huge Belgian slection. But, it gets very busy (1+ hour wait for a table for 4). So we should go there early/go their first especially if there are a bunch of us.

We were hoping to do this in the next month or so and discuss a Spring (warmer weather) brew day. So let this serve as notice for that too.

Who's in?

Just found the thread! Wednesdays aren't great for me, because I have a 4 year old that I pick up at daycare. Staying home with him isn't great either. I am probably in. Just have to make arangements with SWMBO. Maybe swap some homebrews, too?

I'd like to get in on this! I'm the nOOb on the block. I'm brewing my second batch this SUPER weekend! I can bring a few of my (first EVER brew) for you guys to sample. Its a pilsner from a true brew kit that should be ready by 2/23. I'd like the opportunity to meet people like Brewiz and drink some real beer.

The Sweetness of Married Life..............

A couple had only been married for two weeks and the husband although
very much in love, couldn't wait to go out on the town and party with
his old buddies.

So, he said to his new wife, "Honey, I'll be right back."

"Where are you going, Coochy Coo?" asked the wife.

"I'm going to the bar, Pretty Face," he answered.

I'm going to have a beer.

"The wife said, "You want a beer, my love?" She opened the door to the
refrigerator and showed him 25 different kinds of beer, brands from 12
different countries: Germany, Holland, Japan, India, etc.

The husband didn't know what to do, and the only thing that he could
think of saying was, "Yes, Lollipop... but at the bar... You know...they
have frozen glasses...

"He didn't get to finish the sentence, because the wife interrupted him
by saying, "You want a frozen glass, Puppy Face?"

She took a huge beer mug out of the freezer, so frozen that she was
getting chills just holding it.

The husband, looking a bit pale, said, "Yes, Tootsie Roll, but at the
bar they have those hors d'oeuvres that are really delicious... I won't
be long. I'll be right back. I promise. OK?"

"You want hors d'oeuvres, Poochie Pooh?" She opened the oven and took
out 5 dishes of different hors d'oeuvres: chicken wings, pigs in
blankets, mushroom caps, and little quiches.

"But my sweet honey... at the bar.... you know there's swearing, dirty
words and all that..."

"You want dirty words, Cutie Pie?

LISTEN UP CHICKEN ****! SIT YOUR ASS DOWN, SHUT THE HELL UP, DRINK YOUR
BEER IN YOUR FROZEN MUG AND EAT YOUR HORS D'OEUVRES BECAUSE YOUR MARRIED
ASS ISN'T GOING TO A DAMNED BAR! THAT **** IS OVER, GOT IT, JACKASS?"

and...they lived happily ever after. Isn't that a sweet story? MARRIED
LIFE - MAKES MY EYES TEAR UP.

Has any one ever watched the Red Green show out of Canada? Geared toward the middle aged married guys they end every show with the Mans Prayer;
" I'm a man but I can change, if I have to, I guess"

Sorry it took so long to get in on this (and thanks to Brewiz for the PM) but I think I'll have to sit this one out. Between the NFL and AFL at the Dome and Phillips, I do alot of weekend work. I'd love to do it but this is a short break for me and right now I'm trying to get some much needed work on the old Ironhead done in the next couple of weekends before it's consistantly warm enough to ride again. If anything changes, I'll be sure to let you guys know.

Here here! Last night I had Terrapin Brown and Rye Pale. Tonight it'll be more local goodness. The Rye Pale tasted like Edwort's Haus with the perfect amount of rye added. It gives me an idea! The food is awesome as well...

Next Saturday at 3:30 sounds good. I've never been to Taco Mac in Decatur, but it looks easy enough to find.

Yeah, very easy. It is on Ponce at the corner of Commerce on the west side of Decatur. They have a very small lot and if it is full I can usually find stret parking on Commerce south of Ponce.

Oh, I completely forgot about that. Actually I was able to clean mine up some and it is burning much better now. I would love to have it when I get a multi-burner set-up going, but that might be a long time from now. So, maybe it would be better in the hands of a new brewer or someone who is trying to go AG.

Couldn't make it 'cuz my wife has a runny nose. I guess since I was out all morning and she was stuck at home watching the 4 year old. I wasn't really out all morning. I was at work. And she wasn't really watching the kid. The house is trashed and she is in the living room watching TV. I guess I'll just stay at home all weekend and be pissed off. *&^%#$#@!

If I post on HBT later tonight, there will probably be lots of missspellings, 'cuz I am stocked up and I am going to get druck!

I really was pissed, but my wife does have a nasty cold, so I guess I need to be more sensitive. I'm not, but I guess I need to be. I took the little guy to McDonalds for a couple hours so I could cool down.

Who was there? Make any plans for a local brew-together?

We can do it at my house in case "SHMBO" won't let me out again...

I've been out of commision trying to sell my house and have had some other things come up. Keep me informed of future gatherings and I'll try to hook up with you guys. Probably wont be brewing for atleast a few weeks (if i'm lucky) not a sellers market at all.
