Mike, is yours the only club in the RDU area? I would have guessed there were more or at least one large club.
We have two clubs in the area, Carboy and Trub is 20 min down the road in Durham. Trub is more into the tasting aspect. We have clubs scattered across the state, DEA, ATF, BBG, CBM, MALT, High Country, CLASS, Worthawgs...I might be missing one. The problem is NC is a wide state. MALT's (Asheville) closest club is an hour away, next 1.5, then 2.5, 4, 5.5...so it makes it tough to offer assistance. CBM (Charlotte) closest are about 1-1.5 hours, and I believe they could handle it, but they already put on a beer festival for 5000 people and it drains their members and takes a ton of planning. The NHC would really be a killer.
