So where's your proposal?

D.C. in the winter? Are you fucken crazy? I know you want proposals near you, but this makes no fucken sense. Why don't you suggest Green Bay while you're @ it.

Not a single brewery, but the seal hunt is second to none!


Never gone "clubbing" with RB folks :)

That would be incredible

one of the few "cold weather" winter locations I could get behind. That said, last time BeerandBlues2 and I went to the fest it was 40+ F (5 C) in Anchorage, so we got out of the city to surrounding breweries pretty easily. even the 7.4 earthquake at 3 AM didn't deter us, one of the brewers was in a club at the time and said that suddenly his dance moves got way better

Would anyone be up for Nashville? I just moved here and seem to be one of a very small number (maybe one other relatively active) Ratebeerians. I'm not sure what goes into a putting a proposal together, but I'd be up for something if anyone were interested. Or if not this year, maybe a proposal for 2018.

Cheers,
Will

Hmm, this kinda snark is giving me second thoughts about supporting a certain proposal from a neighboring state to the SW.

Nashville would be sweet. Is the beer scene decent?

Once of these days, I am actually going to go.

I'm most interested in Richmond, VA, so you can punish me by not supporting them

I'd support RVA as well, but as I mentioned earlier, there is likely to be no proposal coming from there for a long, long time.

Unless you're thinking about re-locating.
