STL, Grand Rapids, and Anchorage all seem like they would offer escalating degrees of cold for a WINTER gathering.

Since Texas hosted last year that seems unfair. I could see rotating back to Florida since they started the winter gatherings, but what would people think about Atlanta or maybe Sante Fe/Albuquerque?

Is there anyone there that would be willing to put a bid together and organize it for either of those places? In the end, thatís really what it comes down to for any of the locations.


Im all about the Albuquerque/Santa fe deal :) I would definitely help organize that!

Iím totally in on the idea of SLC hosting by the way. We might be able to get quite a show going. Any other thoughts?

If the majority doesnít have an issue with the cold, though, I would encourage Salt Lake City to put in a bid. Lots of good beer there that doesnít get a lot of attention, and a great crew to potentially organize it.


I second SLC. Itís not even that cold there. Itís almost desert!

Only if Coronitas are available and we can have a beach party somewhere in the student ghetto.

Google some of the old RBSG/RBWG threads (anyone have them bookmarked?) for examples of past proposals. Then they get posted here and voting is moderated by Oakes (or was for RBSG anyway).

Not fucken bad.


I was also thinking Vegas or maybe New Orleans, but is there really enough craft beer to warrant a gathering in either of those places?


Between the beer bars and the brewpubs, thereís plenty of craft beer. The logistical problem is that there are not any locals to coordinate it.


New Orleans would be amazing, and I know Avenue Pub would take care of us - but I donít know that there are any/enough locals to organize such a thing. If itís in NO or TX or anywhere within a moderate/reasonable drive, Iím in... okay, well, I can drive just about anywhere.

That said, Itís a dream of mine to wrangle up all the native or one time Iowans of Ratebeer for a tasting sometime. If this ever happened weíd have to extend invitations to the community as a whole.


IíM IN!
