Absolutely!

Let's start spit-balling some dates.

Now that my rugby season is underway, Saturdays are at a premium for me.

I'd say we'd be too drunk to drink beer at the brewfest. :)

I think we should consider late may/early june.

June 12th weekend I am out of town, so I'd like it to not be that weekend. Week before would be nice though.

What does everyone think of Joppa, MD as a central point? Please post your distance from Joppa - and we can quickly determine if that's going to be too far.

FYI - Joppa is about an hour from DC, maybe hour and a half from Fredneck, 1 hour from York, and probably less from lower Lanacaster county if you sneak down into MD via back roads (Rt 1 to Bel Air, MD is pretty fast).

Ok, so our Western/Northwestern friends are 1.5 hours.
Southernmost friends (DC) is about an hour (maybe more for Cugel since he's around the DC beltway a little further) - so say about 1.5 hours for them.
Fredneck is about 1-1.5 hours.
York, 1 hour
Harrisburg, 1.5 hours - I've made the trip to the I-83 bridge in the Burgh in like 1h 24m before

Sounds like Joppa is within 1.5 hours from everyone. :)

Anyone disagree???

Joppa works for me, now to figure out a weekend that suits everyone. Some Sat or Sun in May would work. May 9,10 or 15,16 are open for me.

May 9th I believe is the Mt Hope Brewfest where a number of HBT members are planning to attend (myself included).

Although maybe I could be swayed to change my mind, I'd like to to got the brewfest.

What is easier to figure out than where and when. I guess there is no reason we can't do all three at once though.

My suggestions would be:
IPA
ESB
Something english (pub ale maybe)
Oktoberfest

If you want something English, I'd be more than happy to put together a recipe.

If you've never brewed a mild, I highly suggest it. People tell me my recipe is pretty darn good. :D

I've been wanting to do a mild and I was going to say that but didn't because I will probably have already done one by the time we get together. I have been looking for a recipe so I might just use yours then.

I would also be down for a mild, if I can make it. And always down for an IPA.

This is a great style to experiment with different English yeast, particularly the PC releases from Wyeast. When I next brew my recipe, I'll be using 1469: West Yorkshire.

So, brew on!

I wouldn't mind a scottish or alt. Maybe something really cheap and light for summer too. Like the cream of 3 crops.
