If anyone wants to make the trip up here, let me know. We’re trying to decide whether to set up a "hospitality suite."

As soon as I can get the beer list, I’ll pass it along.

With 150 plus beers over 7% ABV, this will be a good festival.

The Boulevard dinner the night before will be lots of fun for us, since we don’t get to interact with the brewer very much here in Omaha.

Hospitality suite? Go on....

Basically, we don’t have any reason to stay overnight at the Festival’s Official Hotel (Fairfield Hotel) unless we host a post-drinking drinking event down there.

Otherwise, Bill is running a free shuttle to and from the Festival and Beertopia (which is walking/stumbling distance to my house).

My Homebrew club (South Omaha Brewers) might also be interested in a homebrew-centric post-festival event.

Bottom line is that this year’s Extreme Beerfest in Omaha might be worth the trip up from KC.

First time I have heard of that Sierra Nevada Glissade Golden Bock, I wouldn’t mind trying that.

Any of you KC fellers headed out for this? I’ll be there working/playing.

What’s the story with the Dubbel? New batch, or from the batch a few years back?

New batch. I heard it is tasty!

New stuff with cinnamon, coriander, and star anise. We brewed 35 bbls for the Big Beers, Belgians, and Barleywines fest out in Vail. It’s on tap in the tasting room right now.

The Extreme Beerfest has sold out, so if you don’t already have one of the 900 tickets, don’t expect to get one at the door.

I think the highlights will be:
NBC Chardonnay Blonde, Oak Aged Black Betty & Oak Aged Fat Head BW
Odells India Barleywine, Mountain Standard & Woodcut #3
Sprecher The Czar & Bourbon Doppelbock
New Belgium Dark Heather Saison
Goose Island Imperial Nut Brown on cask
Rogue John John Oaked Dead Guy
Avery Beast, Samaels, & Mephistopheles

places 12 º 12:28 Mon 2/8/2010

How was this? Anyone make it up?
