If I book at the Wyndham, is there a promotional code associated with our event so that I can book through my Travel Rewards Visa and get triple points?


The Wyndham and the Extended Stay are right by each other, so the shuttle will likely stop at both. Itís looking like most people are booking at the Wyndham, though. I know I will be, and John, and adamjackson did, etc.

Our group rate should be in the computer by Monday as RateBeer Winter Gathering. I believe you have to call, though, so hopefully that works out for you.

Maybe Iím missing something, but the Extended Stay rate is cheaper if you book online than the RB rate.

Iím good for all but the last. Will add T25, Framboise for a cure, Beat, random Hill Farmstead beers and a slew of sours. If my BCBS Rare, Night Stalker and maple Triple survive that long, those will be included as well. Happy to contribute to the list. Ideally, I send a 6-12 bottle shipper direct to the hotel and they hold it for me.

Iíve been thinking about what to bring for quite a few days. VERY excited to share them with some of the coolest guys ever.

Hey Craig-

The group rate I listed of $62+ is for 2 Double beds with 2 people, its regularly $65+. A Queen with our group rate is $53+ and its regularly $59+. They should give you a small discount off any room requested when mentioning our group: RateBeer Winter Gathering. If not, please bm me so I can get this squared away pronto (and anyone else that has a question).



They would only do a few % discount from their current rates since a remodel is starting and will be done 2 months prior to our arrival with rates going up another 20% or more once completed.



cheers john

I canít justify taking off work for this. We get a four-day weekend the weekend prior to this event, but Iíll be there Saturday for the tasting. If anyone who knows me wants to split a room, let me know. KP is my reference.

Thanks John.
Maybe the rates show low now but will go higher later as it fills up. Right now online it shows the most expensive rooms (2 double beds or a king) at $60. Are you talking about the Riverwalk location?
Iíll call tomorrow and talk to them. Going to make reservations soon, just in case Iíll make it.

You, and anyone else, can ship a box to my house for much better handling and reassurance. Just let me know.

Also, badass list.

Not sure where in the hell hopscotch came up with my list. Iím bringing malt liquors to tick with the Texas gang.
