I just want you guys to know how jealous I am!!!

Cookiebaggs - would you be willing to open your shop up again for something like this? I will definitely be there the next go round!!

Jeff

I'd love to do another indoor group brew before spring! :mug:

I had an absolute blast. It was great putting some faces to the names on here. :D

It was fun to see how others go about brewing beer and what equipment/procedures they use.

Nice. I was wondering why there was Point and New Glarus paraphernalia in the pictures, but I noticed you're from Racine. Always good to meet another WI brewer.

Actually, Short Drive is the only one from Racine. Sause is in Menominee Falls, Cookiebags is in Oak Creek, and I am from Eldorado (a little hick town just west of FdL)

But yeah, always good to brew with the Cheeseheads!
