Let's see. This is the 20th Anniversary of the fabled "Crazy Train" from Chicago, IL. to Portland, OR. {It'll never let us get away with that again!} I still have the T-Shirt, the green jacket, the neck glass, the early-90s Chicago Beer Society cap, and even the Genesee Cream Ale soft-sided luggage. Probably only the T-shirt, neck glass and cap will be in Philadelphia, PA.
Which AHA Conferences have I attended? Hmmm...
  • 1993 - Portland, OR.
  • 1995 - Baltimore, MD.
  • 1996 - New Orleans, LA. (CBS wins Homebrew Club of the Year)
  • 1997 - Cleveland, OH. (Have that T-shirt too.)
  • 1998 - Portland, OR.
  • 1999 - Kansas City, MO.
  • 2000 - Livonia, MI.
  • 2001 - Los Angeles, CA.
  • 2002 - Irving, TX.
  • 2003 - Chicago, IL.
  • 2010 - Bloomington, MN.
  • 2011 - San Diego, CA.
In 1994, I was a World Cup Soccer volunteer during June; I made a cameo appearance one night in Milwaukee, WI.

I will be motoring in from Chicago this year. Wednesday night will be in Youngstown, OH. I hope to get to the Marriott by 4:00 pm on Thursday.

Philly is 58 miles from the Atlantic Ocean.
Manchester is 34 miles.
Baltimore is 116 miles.
Orlando is 45 miles.

Technically none of them are ON the east coast.  Close enough for a homebrewers' association this size though!   8)
Seagulls s*** on my car while I'm at work, so I consider myself to be on the coast  ;D

All right - so we'll be meeting in one of the grand ballrooms after the last lecture on Thursday. From there, we'll get food and beer and fun!

I'm setting up for Pro Brewer's night, so I will probably only have time to stop by and say howdy before that.  Am also bummed that Denny can't make it.

You and me both, buddy!  Do you have any idea how hard it is to find decent beer in Surprise, AZ?

I'm guessing it is a Surprise when you do?   8)

Anyone have any thoughts if I can bring a keg on SEPTA? Trying to figure out best way to get it down there.

I don't believe they allow alcohol to be transported on public transportation.  I may be wrong, though, you could call them and find out.  Bus or train?

I guess my only option is to bring the keg into work. It would get up to room temp. Sadly, there is probably 20 walk in coolers here, but kegs are not really welcome in them.

not that I would recommend it.
I would at least put it in a brown paper bag.

My condolences about your mother, Denny.

If I recall correctly, I think Arizona has both Leinenkugel's and Genesee. In Los Angeles, CA. in 2001, somebody had to bootleg Genesee Cream Ale from Arizona for a seminar.

{O.K. When was there the homebrewers' conference in Milwaukee, WI.? I know I wasn't registered.} :-\

Oh, one last thing: I am looking for a roommate for Thursday - Saturday. I have a room at the Courtyard for those three nights.
I enjoy malty beers.

At Monks Cafe right now. Philly is a good venue. Except for rush hour traffic.
