Beer Event: Belgium Comes To Cooperstown; Our Plans

So, the workday is nearly done and last minute preparations are being made. The RV is being picked up tomorrow morning and we'll be on our way. We plan to arrive in Cooperstown late afternoon in time to set up for dinner and nighttime "festivities." Our plan (if you want to call it that) is to provide you all with short snippets of sights and sounds of the weekend at Ommegang....wireless connection permitting. If no connection can be made, you'll just have to wait until next week to get our updates. (Of course, if we find ourselves in a drunken stupor all weekend, either the stories will be very strange or not submitted at all ;-) We'll hope to get information out to you 3 times a day recapping all the fun and frivolity. If you'd like us to check out a particular brew for you, let us know. The full list can be found over here. In the meantime, let us know if you might also be there. Or, just raise a glass on Saturday to the awesome craft beer industry that we're fortunate to be a part of. Let the adventure begin!

Again, I am sooo jealous! I had a Three Philosophers Quadruple last night... in my Ommegang glass that I got from the Beer Yard. My first love of Ommegang came from tasting the Rare Vos... so please give that a taste while you are out there. I know you will probably be tasting each and every beer anyway.

Hope you guys (and gals) have a great time. Bring me back something nice! ;-)

p.s. don't forget the laptop!

Good one! The laptop is fully charged....wireless card fully functional....power cord in tow too :) I think we're ready! I'm sure we've overhyped this somehow....but, geez I hope not!!

I expect to taste a whole lot that I've never tasted or heard of before....stay tuned!

So, Jeremy do you think we can taste 160 beers in 4 hours? We have our work cut out for us.

Ha ha, oh come on... that only 1.5 minutes per beer... don't be a wuss ;-)
