Brickhouse is usually the biggest single party. If you havenít been, Iíd recommend stopping there for at least a little while.

The brunch at Greenbush is in the works. Sounds like itís more likely than not going to happen. Would feature 3 Central Waters beers (Peruvian, Illumination, and a Session IPA), plus whatever else they have on the other taps already. The ticket would get you in the door and get you food, with beer for purchase. It would be Italian-style brunch- cheeses, meats, lots of desserts and pastries. Would be at 11:30-1:30 on Sunday. Iíll post as soon as it becomes official.

I wouldnít count on Madison Beer Review to do the write-up this year. Thereís been radio silence on that blog since February, and the updates were few and far between before that. Too bad...I liked that site.



Iíd set my sights on The Isthmusís compilation (hereís 2012ís: http://www.thedailypage.com/eats/article.php?article=37431 ). Iím going to poke around to see if others are doing something similar.

Besides the locals will anyone be in town on Thursday night? Iíd love to get together to share a growler of Against the Grain Bo & Luke plus clear out some old stuff from the cellar (Parabola, etc). If youíre interested shoot me a BM so I can figure out if my hotel room will have enough space.

Iíve heard itís pretty easy if you get there early.

That said, Iíve never done it or had to depend on such a process. So, take what I say with a grain of salt.

Oddly enough, and knock on wood, this is one event that Iíve never really heard of anyone overpaying. But I could be completely wrong.
