Really curious how this will affect NB's presence at next years conference.

I agree NB is a very large HBS but very small for InBev.

Maybe I underestimate NB revenue and profit but I am thinking annual revenue less than $10M. That doesn't seem worth InBev's time or attention.
What If they use their contracts to make it THE homebrew supply? Maybe NB grain prices will finally become reasonable.

A monopoly and good prices never go together.

That's what I heard. Sold to their incubator.
What incubator? Are we taking about the stores? Why would InBev want a relatively very small retail business for home brew supplies?

Because they can, to show us who's the boss.

If it's true, they just signed their own suicide note.

I'm hearing all sorts of conflicting information. Did Northern Brewer sell out to InBev?

Is it safe to assume that the 2017 NHC will be held at the convention center.

Events / Free State Homebrew Guild at Craft Beer Kickoff
« on: June 03, 2016, 03:24:40 PM »
I'm confused by the "Free State Homebrew Guild" clubs that will be pouring alongside the pros at the Craft Beer Kickoff party. I don't have a problem with it, of course, but are these actual clubs? Just curious.

I'd skip the Poe house unless you have lots of free time on your hands... his grave is closer to downtown.

The Poe House doesn't seem that big. Does it take a long time to tour? I think it's only open on the weekends.



It's just not very conveniently located.  I wouldn't walk there, personally.

I'll be taking advantage of Uber that week. It worked great for me in San Diego.

It is close by Lexington Market, also worth a visit, although it is not in the best of neighborhoods.  It is the oldest operating market in the US I think.

Is the Lexington Market like the Reading Terminal Market in Philly? My wife and I loved that place.

Events / Sightseeing at the Conference

I'm trying to strike a balance between conference events and some touristy stuff in Baltimore. These are the places I want to visit:

Aquarium
Fort McHenry
Edgar Alan Poe grave/museum
Babe Ruth Museum

I've been to Camden Yards before and a ball game won't fit into our schedule. Am I missing any other places of interest?

Is it always the same weekend? My predicament is having to choose vacation for the next year in october.
It has always been in June (unless you go way back) but not the same weekend.
http://www.homebrewcon.org/conference/past-conferences/

We can keep our eye out for the 2017 information that will be published at the conference. Keep you eye out on the 8th or 9th. Someone will post it on the forum.

Those early June dates are always so tough for me to make it. Hard to take off that time of year when you teach 140 kids till the end of June.

Understand totally. My wife and I both were scheduled to work the weekend of June 11-12 and had to sell our souls to go, making double switches with our co-workers because Sunday the 12th is the start point for a new pay period. I have weekends screwed up into August. Problem is that whenever it's scheduled, someone is gonna be inconvenienced.

I would be cool with MN again. The summers are cooler than Philly and Baltimore (aside from the occasional tornado) and it stays daylight longer. However, it would be nicer to have a hotel closer to town. It's a shame nothing could be worked out for Austin. I hear it's a great town.

This will be my 10th conference and I have yet to have a bad dinner experience.

Well...of course, Denny, everyone is on his best behavior around you.
