My wife & I will be traveling to Eau Claire next Thursday. We already are planning on stopping at Lazy Monk Brewing. Are there any other brewpubs in the area we should check out?

Don't fear the foam. Totally normal. It won't hurt anything.
chezteth you went to GNBF and did not stop by and say HI. I am disappointed.
I don't have experience with them, but I would wager the NB tall boy kettles are of good quality.
They sound a lot like the Megapot 1.2s but without the volume markers and the silicone covering on the handles. I have two megapots (old versions, not the 1.2s), and they are built like tanks.
I take it you are planning to drill the holes yourself?
YOu get what you pay for. In the PW economy live i have seen a lot of thin bottomed pots that oilcan like a sonofagun. Id prefer to not have a drum for a pot personally.
I'm afraid if I put a braid in it I won't get all the wort out of it if it doesn't sit in the bottom. Any suggestions?
You can probably get the braid to sit on the bottom if you incorporate a 90 degree elbow.
While I am a huge fan of the restaurant-grade made in America BP-series Polar Ware kettles with factory welded fittings (see page #2 of this PDF: http://polarware.com/Vollrath-Files/Polar-Ware-Files/CAT_PW-Homebrew_En_NP_2013-08-22.pdf), I am not a fan of the economy line. You can do much better for the money. Bru-Gear offers a nice kettle at that price point.
