Who's Attending BNA10?
« on: June 01, 2015, 08:57:57 PM »
I am sad to say that it took me much longer than it should have to discover how to purchase a ticket to this event (I was beginning to wonder if there was a secret handshake that only BNA members knew ;D ).  Who else is planning to attend BNA10?

I'm giving them a couple years to figure out their growing pains… No judgments, I know what goes into running a small beer festival and can't imagine doing a large one.

Went to one a few years ago (I forget which year), and thought it was kind of a cluster...more for the young'uns.  Plus we'll be schlepping around to beer places during the day, and I keep reminding myself: must p-a-c-e.

On a tour and pub crawl that night.

Edit - 2011 in SD was my favorite.

Well, I am not exactly sporting a cane or a walker at this point in my life. However, then again, if I drink like a young'un, I will need a wheel chair to get back.  ;D

I'll be attending BNA10. Never been before heard its a good time, flight gets in late so ill have about 2 hours, is that enough time to enjoy? May have to try for an earlier flight. Is the food decent/decently priced? I'd hate to spend my money on airline foodjunk. Anyone want to meet up and talk homebrewing? Coming from Seattle.

Went to last years, but won't be making this year.  Going to do some sort of drunks on a bus tour.  I did feel a bit aged for last year.  lol

I don't get in in time...plus I decided a few years ago that I was just too old to enjoy it.

I've been to the last 3.  Definitely better when outside (Seattle and GR).  The one in Philly was hot and crowded until later in the night. 

Whenever possible, I try to make the event (missing NHC this year) but I've been a supporter of the BN since 2008, when I restarted my homebrew hobby ( had to stop for a while...court order issued against me for making crappy beer). 

Seeing as this one is teamed up with White Labs and the BN's 10th, I assume it's going to be a winner.

I really liked last year's at the stadium - the biggest problem is when there's not enough space and too much bodies. (like Philly to my mind).

I wasn't there, but heard that the biggest problem was not having instant replays of the Palmer face plant on the jumbotron
