First night is at North Mountain Brewing.  So far: a flavorless Cream Ale, a decent IPA which was only lacking in dry-hopping, a good Scottish with (quote me here) a discernible peaty/smoke/earthy flavor.  I wish there was a BJCP judge here to either correct or confirm it.  But my favorite is their 3 strings Porter.  Seriously the best Porter I have had to date.

Second day at Peoria Artisan Brewery and Sun Up Brewery.  The Peoria Artisan was a class act.  Not an average beer in the lot.  I got a sampler of 5.  My favorite was their Haboob Black IPA.  Sun Up was good, but nothing I thought was remarkable.

I will also say that the bars around my motel suck.  They each have 6-15 taps of light lagers and other bland beers.  Why that sucks is that I have to drive to the breweries, but an walk to about 6 bars. @$;-?%#{!
