Yes, like John said, we are getting group rates on the hotel and you can split that cost with another person (at the last WG, I just asked in the thread who was going and found a roommate easily). Combined with the sponsors, this is going to be really affordable.

The bus tour package may also include dinner at the grand tasting catered in, and may even end up being a little cheaper than quoted, as we’re still finding more and more sponsors.

Cheers!

Yeah we’re going to need more people if all that beer is coming, otherwise Kickbacks will have the best tap list in the country for a month.

...what’s wrong with that?! Haha!

In all seriousness, not all of those breweries, for legal reasons, will be able to have their beer on tap at Kickback’s. The Grand Tasting is almost surely going to be held at Intuition Aleworks at this point, and several will be on tap there. Most of the breweries said they will be sending up small kegs, so that’ll help.

Local breweries will be serving their beers and special batches for the bus tour as opposed to Kickback’s or the Grand Tasting. Some of the kegs, if we have too many for Kickback’s and the Grand Tasting, will be shared on the bus(es) an beach time.

Event listing:
http://www.ratebeer.com/event/18666/ratebeer-winter-gathering-jacksonville/

Also, I’m sure more people will come. I know of several that haven’t marked themselves on that event listing yet, including some locals and local business owners, etc. that plan to come to a couple of the events.
