I was going, was working every event at 2 booths. Really looking forward to it, but have other plans now and will be in Europe when the event is on.

Edmonton Beer Festival or a trip to Europe. How did you ever make the decision what to do Sid, flip a coin:)

It was a tough choice....it really was (n't). How could I pass up the chance to go to our wineries in Penedes, Montilla & Douro? Thankfully, I'm back just in time for the EBGA Cask Day 2013....now that I can't miss.

Until then there is the DdC take over the tap event at Underground next weekend. I will post the list when all is finalized, all the beer is in Edmonton but there are some details making Underground and us anxious. For those who attended the last one at Accent Lounge there 12 are different beers this time and bourbon aged Peche is one of them.

Sid yes, once again logistics not figured out yet but probably up in Edmonton Saturday or Sunday night for sure.

Patrick that festival is insane from all I heard from the DdC boys. Make sure to get out Mikkeller's bar in the red light district which we have been to and their store although expensive has tons of rare cool stuff from great American and global breweries. Also you will see the Dane's love of european wieners which is a little odd.

The hostel I booked is literally 15 steps from Mikkeller bar. I'm also visiting de Molen, Cantillon and a few others in Belgium I haven't decided upon.

Talk to me before you go. If need be will help you with setting up some brewery visits and don't bump your head entering the Mikkeller bar.
