Speaking of this brewer, I had the Jorge Jalapeno Ale from Sweet Mullets this weekend, much like Slow Eddie it was enjoyable.


Quit rubbing my face in it

The old brewer was still around at that time I do believe.

Anyone getting in Thursday and want to try and do a tasting? Friday and Saturday are a little insane for that as far as Iím concerned. Sunday is an option as well..maybe.

I have stayed at Madison Concourse (Which is amazing but pricey).. and I recommend that. But I believe Double Tree right on the square is a solid hotel with good location.. that is highly sought after for GTMW.

If someone or a couple people got rooms there, it would be very easy to carry a bottle or two downtown for the night and share them with/as a group at some point..

(nudge nudge)..

Matter of fact, I believe I used the facilities at Double Tree on Friday of my first GTMW (2009) while out and about.. and not just a quick piss.

Bar in the lobby area..
