No one will give you the stink eye for having a 4 year old. Remember most dedicated homebrewers fall into the "slightly nerdy married white guy between the ages of 25-45" which translates to prime kid years. The usual caveats apply, of course, in terms of where the kids are allowed to be (e.g. the actual conference itself which is 21+)

(Copyright Drew Beechum 2014 ;) )

Not to be pedantic and stuff, but you're missing a few years from that copyright. I believe I used it during my second campaign (and first successful election) to the GC in 2008. :)

As for rumored locations - I haven't heard any rumors, so I'm not starting them except to say that the plan is still to have the conference bounce around the country into different regions.

So addicting. Love Scott Glenn as Sticks!

They almost made him as much of a jerk as he is in the comic.

And here in the LA area, a lot of cities have tiger enforcement teams that will drive around and cite those who have leaks and/or running their sprinklers. Etc, etc.

No physical tickets, there is a registration area with piles and piles of people and lists to get you in!

Maybe so, but you also wrote that the Flemish government started a plan back in 2001 to introduce tafelbier into Belgian schools, and that is definitely not true....

Yeah, when I first developed the recipe everything I had read up to that point were little blip pieces framed around "hurf durf, official program, school's beer, getting rid of soda". So that was definitely my fault for not going  back and doing more research on the program when writing up the style.

Having said that- the schoolhouse recipe is a paler beer that really does derive an extraordinary amount of character from the wort treatment.

Yes, Drew, you will say it's awesome, but this time you don't count.

Well, I never... :)

But I will share the anecdote that Schoolhouse was the first one of my beers that I saw out in the wild being brewed by others. So far everyone that I've met who makes it raves about it and suggests doing it as a double batch.

I was President of the Falcons for 4 years and I've been on the board since 1999, so yeah.. apparently I have issues. :) (and a very good crew of folks doing things as well)

Good on you for being able to keep it motoring and keep it safely spinning enough that it's stable.
