Does anyone else have trouble finding the conference site? All I can get is the "register now" page with no way to jump to the actual NHC pages.

Got the scoresheets back, and I'm blown away with the details here! The overall theme was not enough balance (malt) coming through. Probably due to my really low mash and dry finish. Notes below for those interested...
I've been pleased with the banquet selections in the past. We will have a new chef this year. I'm looking forward to it. Full meatitarian here!
This will be my fifth and I've really enjoyed each and every one of them. For my money, the Philadelphia AHA Conference was the gold standard. The hotel and layout were superb, the exhibition center was huge and the acoustics were good and the Philadelphia beer scene was very, very impressive.
Judging at the NHC finals is one of the coolest things I have gotten to do....twice. It was certainly not a burden. You meet other judges from all over the country(ies) and sometimes you sit at a table with someone like John Palmer. Hard to beat that!
Hell, I would pay to do it......
Because it is expensive?CAMRA's The Good Beer Guide is a book that is updated annually and tends to have very accurate descriptions of the type of real ale pub and the beers they are pouring. It divides London into easy to navigate sections by geography (SW1, NE2, etc.).How could I forget that one, as we stopped there about a month ago.
No one has mentioned the White Horse on Parsons Green, usually considered a must stop for real ales.
