Are there any RBers in Asheville who could put together a proposal?

So, donít bother with your piece of shit other proposals that just copy the same crap that has happened at all past rbsgís, because this shit needs to change, and this one will change it all. Weíre talking a grand tasting consisting of a camp out in the boulder wilderness with tents and fires and shit...not in a stupid fucking warehouse with all you sweaty fat fucks dripping your sweat on people, drinking your special beers that make you feel cool for bringing them to the party blah blah blah...time to step it this shit up to a level that isnít played the fuck out by you nerds!

can we get it sponsored by Coors?

Thatís the issue. Itíd be an unbelievable place to put together an event - ridiculous amount of breweries in a farily small radius, and easy bus trips to the others, not to mention one of the more scenic towns in the US - but there arenít many (any?) RBers on the ground there to help with the details. If this event could be planned remotely, Iíd be happy to help. But Iíd also echo the point that itíd be worth waiting until Sierra Nevada, New Belgium, and Oskar Blues have their new facilities open there - summer 2014 or 2015 would allow that to happen.

I saw St. Louis mentioned in the winter thread, but how about summer? Terminus, vyvvy, Strykzone - any interest? Iím moving in 3-4 weeks so I wonít be on the ground but I can help with anything remotely and whenever I visit.



If not, Minneapolis and Chicago both would be cool.

wanít there a recent MN RBSG?

I think eyedrinkale put together a NY proposal last year.

Also, Denver/Boulder would be sweet.

It depends on what you consider recent. 2007 was the last one in MN.

Yep. Cincyís not ready for a RBSG yet, though, in my opinion. Cleveland could do it. Columbus, too, if Jackie-Oís were included. Nothing against the great RB members in both towns, but there arenít enough destinations at this point compared to other former and potential future host cities.

Cleveland could definitely do it; we have more than enough stuff to fill a long weekend, and we compare favorably to most anything mentioned. With that said, I donít think anyone is going to try setting anything up.
