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.



Now is the time to step up to the plate, man!

Not a chance. I donít have the time or patience to deal with the ignorance and misinformation regarding the area.

So I have a RBSG question for those of you who have been a part of it before. Whatís the average number of breweries on the usual schedule?

Any input is appreciated.

Iíve been to only one. RBSG 2010.

Dark Horse and Bellís were a bus trip.

Founders and HopCat were the downtown brewery stops. There were more breweries in town (less than there are now) but I donít think they were on the official itinerary. There was a Sunday brunch somewhere I didnít take part it, so that may have been at one.

From a Mpls perspective, I have the following breweries confirmed as being interested in participating (assuming the TBD dates work for them obviously).
Indeed
Northbound
Fulton
Town Hall
Surly (Omar has also agreed to let us hold the grand tasting here)

I still need to work out the final details and schedule, but tentatively leaning to a Thurs through Sun in late July or late August 2013.

If itís in Minnesnowta we should hold the grand tasting on milkmandans lawn.

Rbsg 2013 has already been decided, its in denver/boulder and mj is putting together the itinerary right now. 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!


The only problem with this is that MJ will already be íoverí RBSG before it begins, have a secret mini-RSBG in his backyard with DaSilky1 only, and we will all be wondering what the fuck just happened.
