    Too bad I’m so far away. Can you web cast it for me while I drink at home? :-))

  • If I didn’t have a 9 hour drive in front of me to get there you can believe I wouldn’t have missed that.

  • Craig Reed says:

    So the two day discount is now available one day only? Thanks for putting the nail in the coffin on my decision not to go. I hope that extra money off ticket sales from people who do attend both days at least goes towards a reasonable amount of bathrooms at the next winter beerfest.
