Alright people, you can stop this nonsense now. Itís going to be in LA INDIANAPOLIS. People from SD, SF, Chicago, Austin, Tampa also agree that it should be in LA INDIANAPOLIS. We also have Joeís vote, so what more do you want? We already have 90% of the breweries confirmed (including a location for the grand tasting) along with special beers that will be made for the event.

New Mexico has a great beer scene, totally underrated since most of the brewers donít ship elsewhere. Santa Fe is an hour away from ABQ on the interstate, or thereís a train if you donít have a driver. There are beer places adjacent to both ends of that line.

And then thereís the food!

Where does the Michigan hate come from? And why is Montreal more doable than MI? MI is the great beer state you know. I think a Winter Gathering during the Winter Beer Fest would be absolutely awesome. It is my favorite festival to go to. I hope someone puts together a proposal for it.


Well what are you waiting for? Put together a proposal!

Michigan would be a kickass gathering any month between and including January and December.

Weíre getting our Jax proposal together, but what do we do with it? Send it to Oakes? Is there a deadline? When do we vote? Who all is proposing?
