Sheraton right by Olin Park. Great spot for sure. Bummed Iím not heading out this year (trying to make it out to FOBAB instead) but Iíll definitely be back. We had some pretty wicked beers at the hotel tasting last year! I know I was pretty hammered Friday night after the pre-parties and 2 straight hours of pounding Lolita and BCS Vanilla for free at the Goose event. I donít even remember my father-in-law drinking the final push/kiwi blend :)

I doubt your father-in-law does either...

Popped my cherry last year and it was awesome.

How do you find out about the events/releases for Friday before? Do the different bars post notices online or is there a main site with a listing of tap takeovers?

MHTH Website, BeerSpot, and a beer news blog up there usually posts them.

We keep this thread moving as info comes out, so just keep checking back.

I think Madison Beer Review is the blog Adam is referring to. For an idea of what they had last year, check out http://www.madisonbeerreview.com/2011/08/your-guide-to-pre-great-taste-events.html.
