I keep hearing in my head the guy from Mortal Kombat saying "Jax wins."

Shoot, I forgot to address this in your e-mail.

It wasnít really a conscious decision either way... the other proposals used that same weekend, thatís the weekend it was last year, and we couldnít do it in March because of other events in FL.

Iím with the other responses, though, many people donít get that day off, and people that do may want to spend it with family or doing other things. Itís also Valentineís day weekend, which could put a cramp on our style at many restaurants, etc. The last weekend just seems like a good, generic weekend to get it all done.

Yeah, does the brewery tour include a stop at Jonathan Wakefieldís house?


Out of town breweries are already being contacted to participate, either at the welcome dinner on Thursday night, which will focus on non-Jax Florida beers, or at the Grand Tasting if we canít get it worked out because of licensing/distribution issues.

Anybody good with graphics? We are going to try to do RBWG-JAX shirt and need a graphic for the front. It can be full size or a pocket type logo or whatever. Less colors is better because generally more colors = more cost.

We may also do glasses/snifters/etc. and could use the logo there as well.

Thanks!

We are working on Sponsorships, which include a prominent placement on the back of our RBWG-JAX shirts. These will help keep the costs down for the the Grand Tasting and the bus tour. We are also lining up a number of special FL beers (maybe a FloridaWeisse too ).

Anyone that has suggestions, you can bm Danny or me. We want to make sure this is a great event for everyone.

cheers john

Jax sucked so much when I lived there more than 10 years ago now...fuck Iím old. Anyway, last time I was there the beer seemed way better, Iím sure the weather still sucks but it should be tolerable in Feb. Iíll try to wrap a visit to the írents and this together and make it.
