    I was about to take a picture of the guy tending to the silo. He was doing something to it when it erupted. Now the question is was it human error or faulty equipment.

    Exact thoughts I had Shelby, Nice guy trying to share his passion. I don't think they actually brew on weekends much. Clearly someone wasn't check pressures or something. Thank God this didn't happen after the cooler part or when everyone was in that kettle room.

    Bob, how's your camera? You seemed to get a large amount of beer on you as well. My clothes were saturated, I even had beer coming out my ears. It didn't help that I was crouched down.

    Charrito it was a good time until the end. There were probably a good 100 people there and no one from our group was injured that I'm aware of. Shelby I was in the cooler also and was shocked when he opened the door and a wave of beer came flying in.

    If you got photo's before the explosion I say post them. We should probably hold off until we know everyone is ok on anything afterwords. I know everyone walked out but two people. Careflight showed up and flew one male out. Another female left in an ambulance.

    I had my camera on a tripod facing the silo and looking through the view finder when it happened. I did not manage to snap off a shot though. Think I earned a nick name on that one, too slow Joe.

    WOW!! my camera and I were soaked. It still showed power, but I immediately turned it off. Man I hope the weather sealing worked.

    I know that Joe And me had a beer bath when the silo blew up I'm OK i think Joe is too except for being soaked in beer, What an experience.

    Caught up with a few of you and was hoping to catch the rest after the tour. Unfortunately the tour ending went out with a bang. I'm hoping everyone is ok.

    If anyone is interested in Breakfast Taco's at Rudy's in Frisco before the tour let me know. Better to have some food before beer at 11AM. : )
