I have seen a couple of references that this is only the second NHC on the East Coast. One was in the Philly Beer Scene, and mentioned the Manchester NH conf. as the first.

What about Baltimore and Orlando (which is about as close to the Atlantic as Manchester)?

Hey, I'm on the east coast in Manchester right now...East Coast of the Merrimack River  ;D


But I can be at the ocean in about 35 minutes.

I am now accepting bets on how many bottles arrive in philly.

My bet is they all arrive to Philly...they just may not be intact.  ;D

We do have a room! It's one of the ballrooms even, so break out some beers and make sure we have everything we need to have some fun. I'm trying to secure some signage to make it more apparent.

Hey folks. any idea when we are going to try to make this meetup happen? I'm starting my final planning and my wife would like to know when I will be MIA.

So the last seminar for the day gets over at 5:30pm but I don't know when the competition judging will be done.  I'm going to definitely grab some food real quick and guess I'll be there around 6:15-6:30pm.  Is there an official start time?

The graybeards around here may recall back in the halcyon days of the 1970s that it was very hard to get Coors anywhere but Colorado and westwards.  A huge mystique built up around it and everybody east of the Mississippi had to get their hands on some.  People would go out of their way to bring cases of it back East.  I'm sure if they had done that survey back then, Coors definitely would have been on top of the list (though, back then you'd have to had made the list the "Top 10 Beers in the Country" or something like that).

I bet some even hired a truck driver to bring a load back and he had a guy driving a Trans Am running interference with the cops.  ;D

I assume this is a BYOB meeting.  Any bottles shops near the hotel anyone can suggest?

Is https://www.homebrewersassociation.org/attachments/0000/6351/doubleIPA.pdf the latest one?

I don't know if it's that latest one but it's the one I always make and it's fantastic.  I scored a 37 with this one in the first round this year ( no place though ).

I remembered yesterday afternoon and was hoping is wasn't full.  I entered 1 (kolsch) and have to see if I have enough of the Munich Helles left to enter another.

Good luck to everyone.  I only wish I could make it out for the festival.

Does anyone know if there is a special address to ship beer to the conference hotel?
This is probably what you want:

The personal small package pickup info is at the bottom.  Or just send to the hotel and have them hold it for your arrival.

If they didn't recondition the o-rings, go get some new ones and replace them now.  I bought bulk rings from McMaster-Carr a lot cheaper than buying the kits.  I have no idea if the pinlock o-rings are different...mine are ball lock.

the fee worked out for an "oversize" vehicle (aka heavy duty pickup) at ~$70 per night!)

I bet anything bigger than a Yugo is considered an oversized vehicle.

Someone yesterday paid $560,000 for 2 parking spots in Back Bay of Boston yesterday, that were being auctioned off by the IRS.

This just made my airfare and airport parking more expensive than driving, and I could have brought some beer too!!!   GGRRRR!!!

On the flipside, though, I will be home an hour after my flight takes off instead of the 6-7 hour drive with a hangover  :-[

I'm not sure this is what they use, but if I hear differently, I'll post it here.

Will there be a secret handshake?  ;D

My wife is going to run my avatar through her sticker maker and I put it on my badge.  Beware TheDarkSide.
