Everyone please keep in mind that I was just expressing a fever-driven opinion. As much as I'd like it to be that way, it really isn't practical. How could enough homebrew for the banquet be produced? There really is no choice but to have commercial beer and I'm grateful for the brewery sponsorships. However, that doesn't change my feelings about the fact that this is a homebrew conference and there shouldn't be limitations on bring the beer we make and that are the basis of the existence of the AHA. So, maybe the solution is we don't return the conference to CA until things change?
