Brewing a wit tomorrow evening. It got hot early this year, so this year's first batch is going fast.

I've got a mild I need to bottle, if I can make time. I'm going to Revolution Brewing's grand opening party tomorrow night. They've been a brewpub for about 2 years and are kicking off their new production brewery with a bang -- 16 of their beers and 16 guest taps, food and bands. Should be a great time.

Bottling an IPA and brewing a tripel. In between a lot of work in the yard.

I'm brewing a mild sometime this weekend. I've got the starter going but haven't figured out the recipe yet.

I posted a recipe in the thread "Munich Mild" in the beer recipe folder. It turned out really good, refreshingly malty. I am going to do a variation on it for NHC with coffee and Cocoa Nibs.
Thanks, I'll check it out.

I racked my Falconers Flight 7Cs IPA this afternoon. My goodness, that smelled outrageous. The gravity sample wasn't bad, either ;)

I don't think I'd mash that high  using that much Carafoam, as I think it would finish pretty high. Otherwise looks quite tasty.

The Livery in Benton Harbor is close to there and is supposed to be very good. I haven't made it there yet, but a friend whose opinion I trust raves about it. The town is a bit grim, though.

I've got an IPA to bottle and a whole lot of organizing to do.

I'm brewing an IPA tomorrow after ferrying the wife to the airport. I have a pile of Falconer's Flight 7C's that I'm going to blast it with late.

There's obviously bad code somewhere, as the new button does work in IE9 in compatibility mode. Please don't make me use IE!

There are a bunch of places in Fells Point, which is easily reached by water taxi. It's more interesting for walking around than the area around the Convention Center, or it was last I was there. I liked the Wharf Rat downtown, but it's has been transformed into the Pratt Street Alehouse. Don't know if it has changed much, but they still have 3 beers on cask, so I would head there.

Brewer's Art is supposed to be good as well, but I didn't make it there.

Phil - Brew Camp is new.  Maybe a year or two.

Brew & Grow has expanded and has more locations, but none of them are particularly convenient for me.  Never had a bad experience there.
I never went to the old B&G downtown, as I heard too many bad things about it. The new store in the West Loop is pretty good, but not convenient.

The south 'burbs are dying for a good LHBS, but that's probably nowhere near the OP's home. There's nothing south of Beverly and as nice as those (unnamed) guys are, I don't shop with them as they're always out of stuff.

The Pub / Re: regional Sayings

I think my favorite regionalism here in LA is the freeway notion. Ignoring the plethora of names every freeway has (and will vary based on the your mile marker) or the fact that some freeways that go N/S are marked as E/W and vice versa, my favorite is the reference scheme.

In the rest of the country an interstate is always I-something. Where I grew up, I was used to talking about I-4, I-95, I-75, Highway 50, State Road 441, etc.

Out here in Los Angeles - it's all "the" as in "the 5", "the 101", "the 210", "the 2", etc, etc.

Took a while to get used to, but now I can't imagine saying I-5, Highway 101, etc.
That was a hard habit to shake when I moved to Chicago. Of course around here, they mostly use the name and not the number, but you get to use the: The Dan Ryan.

I don't know, I never heard of "sun breaks" as a weather phenomena until I moved to the NW . . .

The weirdest thing I think, is all of the people in the south who use "coke" as a generic word for "soda".

I liked learning that, the myriad of ways Harry Wappler had to describe rain and convergence effects over the Sound.

My favorite thin in Chicago is the Combination Sandwich -- italian beef and a grilled sausage on a bun.
