It's hot, humidity can differ throughout the day. Call me crazy, but a fall meeting in the south would be ideal.

Has there been any word about the host hotel in Baltimore? I'm assuming its in the inner harbor.
Well...I woke up this morning and I got myself a beer

No announcement on the hotel(s).

Looks like this will be my first NHC!
Corn is a fine adjunct in beer.

And don't buy stale beer.

Forget the argument for 2017 as I propose Branxton NSW for that event.

With the recent riots, soaring crime/murder rate, Baltimore has zero appeal for me to come visit. I'll sit this one out.

Agreed. Really hard for me to get excited about going there.

I doubt it's as bad as you think.  I travel to St. Louis frequently (right next to Baltimore in crime) and I've never felt unsafe.

BTW, St. Louis has Schlafly, Urban Chestnut, Perennial and Side Project amongst many more.  Being from KC I hate to admit STL is a great place for NHC, but if the AHA doesn't want to chose an historic brewing capitol (no, not just A-B) then I guess that just leaves more Side Project for us Midwesterners.

Actually, it's not bad.  My wife and I took a flight there a year or so ago and had a very nice longish weekend.  There's light rail to get from the airport to the Inner Harbor.  That part of Baltimore is very safe and has tons of tourist venues as well as historic sights.  The aquarium is one of the best, there's a water taxi to take you to Fells Point, there's lots of good beer.  Just don't walk too far out of the Inner Harbor area.

The same thing could have been written for Oakland in 2009. Those riots happened ~6 months before the conference.

Form a committee with the local clubs and make it happen. I think it was on the survey that went out after the conference, so it is on the radar.

I was there this week for work. Downtown is clean and nice. There is a nice harbor area.  I saw nothing remotely scary.

Crime was worse in 1995 when the first NHC was there.  Despite what the media tells you, there has been a decrease in violent crime across all cities in the US.

The increase this spring is concentrated in specific areas where the police have basically stop policing.  Not going to get into the politics behind this here. There's been increases violent crime in many major cities this year, though, but it's still better than 20 years ago.
