    Had a great time and hope you all did too. Unfortunately the long line kept me from getting inside by 11:30 but there were so many great beers to enjoy that I am sure everyone kept busy.

      Most of us did the 11am session. It was hard to meet up because the line was so long but the beers were really tasty!

    I won't be able to make it to this event. I do have a ticket that I'm will to scalp... err, sell at cost. It's for Session 2, contact me through the group and we'll work out a way to get you the ticket.

    I had a preview taste of Reuben's Brews pumpkin beer yesterday (which will be at GPBF). It is a yummy little number based on their American Rye with pumpkin puree and spices. The spices were steeped in a 5th of Maker's Mark before adding making for a wonderfully balanced and enjoyable beer. This is an amazingly good all-around beer -- not a one-off, one sip for curiosity beer.
