I would love to see a goblet, betting . . . . .  I would bet against it.
My guess is High Gravity will supply the glass again.

Great Sponsor

One thing I have learned about the AHA Staff is that they ALWAYS try to be inclusive. 

Thanks Janis

Hotel info will go out once paid, and we have blocks of rooms in many locations.  There is no "host" hotel this years because of DeVos center. 

We will actually have room to move around in this year.

With registration ending WEDNESDAY, if you haven't already,  NOW is the time to register.

Not that I'm biased, but this conference is going to be awesome.  Spread the word to register now if you want to attend the conference.

Pre registration we thought it would be close. Heavy hit last year because it was the east coast so somewhat less pressure from locals this year vs growth. Hoping for 3999 this year and everyone getting in.

I honestly don't know but if (I don't know) it wasn't no one has any idea if it will in the last days or not which leaves you in the same situation.  A ticket you can cancel in two weeks?  Am least ask.

A change this year, ALL attendees must be AHA members.   I signed my wife up with a household membership for this reason.
Quote
Each member applying to register may request ONE guest registration.
Additional registration fees are required for a guest.
All guests must also be members of the AHA.
A valid 9-digit AHA member number for each registrant and guest will be required.

Primary Yeast was Nottingham yeast cake, and finished with an American Ale II Growler of active slurry from a brew pub.

Do you have BeerSmith?  Look up Imperial Barleywine (63) Double Malted Bliss  in the cloud.

This beer won the Imperial Anything AHA Club Only contest.

Thanks Steve, 

We hope to be there in the future but (and we are working on it) there are some legal speed bumps to be overcome first. 

Thanks for the input.

This seems like a good place to ask for your help.

The NHC location is decided years in advance and always has had a local committee behind it.
We, the AHA and GC are always looking for new locations that can handle our new size.  And with a favorable contract.  The AHA/BA Events staff will work out those details, but we would love to be aware of more locations that can handle our event in future years.

We are prepared to handle 4000 this year (2014) in Michigan, and with the AHA's growth, and the growth of brewing in general it is normal to expect future conferences to be bigger.  Please suggest facilities around the country that can handle us. 

To help with the above, if you plan on attending Mashing in Michigan in 2014, Please register during the upcoming window.  Please don't let your thoughts on any of the changes stop you.  This will give us our first solid benchmark on demand in quite a while. 

Fred

As always we will look at any and all issues that come up for the purpose of making the next conference even better.

Fred

And that will be where?  ;)
I think I'll be able to tell you by the end of the month, maybe.  Befor that and I'll have to shoot you  ;)
