NHC Pre-conference events
« on: February 23, 2013, 10:31:58 AM »
Does anyone by chance know when the pre-conference events will be posted?  I keep checking back but there doesn't appear to be any information yet...

Patience, grasshopper.  You also need to focus on the BNA8.  Check out www.thebrewingnetwork.com for that one.  It's the MUST pre-conference event.
Well...I woke up this morning and I got myself a beer

Meeeeeeh...Last year's BNA party was REALLY so-so.  Two years ago in San Diego was awesome.  I'm now leery...

I had a great time at BN7.  Tons of great beer, live band, and a whole bunch of asshats.
The food line sucked though, but who's there for food, anyways?!?  I also got a nice tour of Elysian's brewery.

It was my first BN attended event, so I was a little star struck ( Justin, JP, Tasty, Paxton, Keeler, Dawson, Chip, etc ).

What was nice is that it was an evening party, so I was able to do the day event tour and then catch the bus the BN7.

Thought the BNA at Northern Brewer in Minnesota a few years back was excellent.

Been to the BN party at Minneapolis, SD, and Seattle.

All were good, Seattle was not up to the other 2.

Where did you think Seattle missed?  Not being defensive, it's totally planned by the BN guys, just curious. :)

I think the beer selection was not up to SD and Minneapolis. I think the band at SD had it going (you know what I mean)!

All of these had the full Hudecek contingent represented, so they have that going for them. Which is nice.  8)

We had a guy lined up to help them get it all organized here, but they did it themselves.  Late.  I still had a lot of fun though :)  But it was not as crazy as MN or SF or SD, at least for me.

Agreed. I had fun, a lot of fun, but was not suffering the next morning, and that was good.

One more thing then I will shut up. With the PA and Philly beer scene and distribution, it could be really good at the BN party this year. We will go, just because.
