You're right. My central florida brain mixed them up.

Funky Buddha is in Oakland Park, FL (not Overland Park), and if you want to relate it back to a larger city, it's sort of encapsulated within Fort Lauderdale.   Miami is a solid 30 miles to the south.

All my love to South Florida

yeah, well comes from starting this way back in the day. :)

Regardless of what you do - moving to $$ collection online is such a win.

I would give you what we do, but we're operating with a custom rolled solution using drupal.

If anyone's curious - looks to be the equipment from Standard Brewing in Maryland Heights, MO.

The GC asked about this when it was posted. AHA staff confirmed - that's not a typo.

You can buy to all sessions as I recall.

Was it just me, or was the audio from Bob Pease muffled? I could hear Drew, but it sounded like a one-sided conversation. At least on my phone.
Our initial render had an issue. We updated yesterday morning - like 9:30AM PDT or so. If you go back and check it should be better!

This makes me think I need to up the challenge - 30 gallons in 1 day. (20 gallons on my main rig, 8 gallons on a grainfather, 2.5 on a zymatic)

I had a lengthy conversation with a Chicago guy I know at HBC, and he is a well known Cask expert. We were setting in Brits Pub in Minneapolis. The Fullers was very nice, but not cask, from kegs through fake handpumps. His new venture is being a Cask Marque inspector in the US, and he handed me his card. US British pubs are not his target, but brewpubs and breweries that do cask beers. That is where he can improve quality of the Ales being served. Thought it was pretty cool.

The fuller's thing always makes me disappointed, but the beers at Brits were top notch.

Also, I kinda sorta serve as a roving second inspector for LA. (K, we only have one place so far, but you know how that goes. :) )

ok - again - Wheaton's law on y'all. Seriously stop with the sniping and the responding to sniping. It's making for a crap environment.

Thank you - the kinda sorta maybe managment.

Yeah, sorry I don't wield mod hammers very often. But I feel like if I need to swing the hammer, it's usually for violations of Wheaton's law.

No worries about what it was about and I chopped out the parts of the thread that were not needed for history.

It will and we have a book signing just before our live podcast on Friday - 1:30-2:30PM in the Expo Center.

I'm not sure how to take the last part, but I'm not going to spend any more time worrying about it.

A little more clarification on how point A) is "flipped" would probably help too.  We are getting people that weren't interested in homebrewing before, right?  More women, more young people, more non-engineers?  That's good, unless you're refuting that.  But people aren't spending as much on "stuff" at the stores, and not spending as long in the hobby, correct?  Meanwhile a whole lot of people have gone pro. Also good (for them at least). I've never tried to make people less enthusiastic than myself unwelcome in this hobby and in fact as stated have actively done the opposite.  But I still prefer to spend my time with my own peeps - people I can relate to, have things in common with, have known for years.  My brewing family, basically.

...and a great many have disappeared.

The last part was meant as a general message to everyone - peace, love, hoppiness. No specific targets.

It's seems more that the newer generation of homebrewers is interested in general "maker" culture and not as much "I make beer" or "I make cabinets". Naturally that's a shallower engagement level by the sheer volume of different things to make. It does affect the discussions we have and the content that gets produced.

And I absolutely think a good number of those who would be the obsessive crazy pants brewers of yore are jumping to the pro side.
