Are you only in for 1 night?  I've never been, but a lot of people talk about Bukoski's Tavern on Dalton Street (up near the Sheraton).

I was thinking about forum names and thought I would start this thread.  It's a pretty common one on other forums.

Mine is obviously boring (just my first initial and last name).
There are lots of way more interesting ones here in this forum.
Tell us what significance yours has and how you came to pick it



But what about BDawg?

Mine was setup years ago (first used on the Brewing Network back in 2008), which depicts my love of stouts and the original trilogy of Star Wars.

The Trillium taproom is south of Boston in Canton, but you can buy cans at the Fort Point brewery.  Row34 is right next door and probably will have some Trillium on tap.

Harpoon is worth a visit...nice big beer hall.

Sunset Grille is great...we go there every year after Extreme Beerfest.  There's also a Boston Beerworks by the Garden on Canal Street.  Like Pete said, beer is ok but I wouldn't go out of my way.

Take an Uber up to Everett and check out Night Shift Brewing...one of the best in the area.  Right down the street (about 75 yards) is a new brewery called Bone Up Brewing that shows promise.

I'll be there on Tuesday.  Last year I couldn't make it until Friday so I'm coming in early this year.

So since I haven't received an email telling me I'm in the competition yet, I guess I didn't make the cut. However, I haven't received any email telling me that I DID NOT get into the competition either. Anyone else in this boat?

Try going to https://www.brewingcompetition.com and logging in with your email address and AHA number.  May not work, but worth a shot in case your email never made it.

My  buddy just got an email advising that he did not get in.  Apparently they hit capacity this year.  Really bummed for him.

That's surprising since I got the 5 I asked for, but maybe the regions they selected were full.

Jeff, I bet Susan remembers a horde of hungry bearded brewers descending upon the Pro "Night" hors d'oeuvres in Grand Rapids.  ;D  hopefully having another pre-dinner party doesn't lead to more of the same.

I got there 20 minutes late and there was nothing left.

Well, at least there will be less complaining about the food at the banquet :)

Got 5, 3 beers and 2 ciders.  One is a silver winner last year I'm hoping to bump up to gold.  A couple of my friends are also brewing the same recipe and submitting to different regions.  It would be cool to go head-to-head with them in the finals!

I really need to find a new and less stressful sport to partake in  - like catching knives.

my heart rate spiked to 150 bpm during the 4th and OT.


My heart rate yesterday.  Watching was almost like exercising!

Wheaton's Law, which should be the number one rule for internet forums... and is a damn good one to follow in life in general.

FYI...The Brewing Network coined this a Rule #1 to the Brewer's Code before Wheaton took credit for it.  What a dick! :)

Forum meetup at NHC this year could be very interesting, if not entertaining   ;D

Guess who else was here, at least in spirt! Found these three leftovers to haul back to the room.

gotta get me a couple of those and crack them open when the Patriots win the Superbowl (Tom really loves the Patriots and especially Bill Belichick  ;D )
