Title: Craft Brewers Conference
Post by: majorvices on March 13, 2014, 05:10:11 pm
Who all is going? I thought Sean and Tom said they were. Leos? I'll be flying in the 8th and flying out the 12th. Love to have a beer or three with anyone who will be around that week!

Nope, no time. Maybe in the future.

Decided I didn't need to hit Denver again for a bit after going to GABF.

I'm going to come down for at least one day, but I don't know which one(s) yet. Definitely need to hit up some of the hundred breweries that have doubtless opened since GABF.

I will probably just hit the trade show.

Any of you out of towners care to make the journey to East Denver, I would be very happy to show you around and chat.

Not this year.  Went to the 2013 CBC in Washington D.C. and had a blast.  But we'll be taking equipment deliveries and (hopefully) brewing our initial batches in early April. 8)

I'm just doing the trade show. Can't afford anything else! I was instructed by my partners to stay sober long enough to find a bottler. ;)

Congratulations, Matt! Wayne, I might take you up on that!

Too bad. I was hoping to meet you, Leos.

See you there, Tom!

Not going to make this year. I also went to 2013 CBC in DC, but other priorities have prevented me from attending this year's conference. Have fun! Maybe next year.

Keith, did you see those events Sam Calgione posted about?  They could be fun . . .

Wayne, I'd love to take you up on that, is one day better than another?  Maybe Wednesday after lunch?  I'll try to drag Keith along. ;)

Keith,

I am going to be there and would love to meet up with you sometime.  I should be there the 9th through the 12th, won't be in Denver very long on the 9th though as we are heading up to Fort Collins for the night.

I would love to bend your ear anyway, might be making the leap as well.

Nate

What a great week a CBC. Hung out with my buddy Tom Schmidlin most of the week (Tom hung with the Alabama crew last night and wasn't overwhelmed!). Got to visit Wayne's impressive Station 26 brewery and get an extensive tour. Bought a meheen bottling line! 6 packs of yellowhammer coming to grocery stores in south east soon!

This was my first conference, learned a heck if a lot and had a blast!

It was great to meet Tom and Keith and the rest of the guys from Alabama.

Thanks for making the trek out to the wilds of East Denver. I am glad you enjoyed our little fire house.

At some point I hope to be able to come out and visit with you.

The best thing I found at the show was a firkin bung removal tool for $25.00. We also bought a "Bulldog" for transferring beer into and out of whiskey and wine barrels using CO2 for about 1/2 of what GW Kent wants.

Sorry I missed you guys, I heard it was a great conference. Someone had to make some beer this week though. ;)

i had a great time with the AL crew, it was really a fantastic conference.  I learned a lot too, but didn't buy a packaging line :)

Wayne, thanks for the hospitality. You're making some great beers there!  If you have a chance, let me know where you found that bulldog, I'm going to want one.

Sean, sorry we couldn't get together.  Grand Rapids?  Or Portland next year?

Tom,

The Bulldog is from MoreBeerPro Gas Transfer Tool (http://morebeerpro.com/products/morewine-gas-transfer-tool.html)

It doesn't come with the sight glass, but I have a couple that I use now during transfers. If you have a spare valve to use with it, that will help.

Thanks for the comments on the beers.

Wayne
