I'll be at NHC, but not sure about the Soper Tour yet. Depends on how a few things fall in my schedule. So much to cram into a few days!

Surely.  It's the way to Ninkasi though (if you listen to Soper lol)

Please say it's soon, need to either submit my remaining beers to other comps or package them up for NHC Baltimore.  Wish I would've known about the troubles in Nashville before choosing to submit there.

Based on a post on their FB page, they are still trying to find more judges to wrap up on Tuesday. While I appreciate all the efforts of people in that region, hopefully another area with more judging capacity steps up next year.

Well, 3 of the past 4 Ninkasi winners were on the SoperTour. ;)

Any word on when Denver results will be posted?  I was hoping last Friday but it didn't happen.  Crossing my fingers for today.

Yikes! As one who has bitten off more than I can chew a time or two, I really feel for them.

Yep. This has to be tough for the Nashville judges.

I must be the 1 of the last 4, since I have no idea what the SoperTour is.

Me neither but it looks like a guy on Homebrewtalk that does bus tours at NHC.  I use to work with a Director of Security who's last name was Soper, but I doubt it's him.

Yeah - Chris Soper. Well known on HBT, used to live here in Austin. Usually does a bus tour of area breweries at NHC. Usually has Jeremy V and Mark Schoppe on board. It's a good time for sure.

Soper's a guy who lived in Austin at one point and moved out to Arizona.  He usually tries to put together a little party bus tour of some local beer spots at NHC with some of the AZ/TX guys (I'm friends with a fair number of Zealots and met Soper that way, so I crashed the tour last year).  It's a fun time.  3 out of the last 4 Ninkasi winners went on the tour the year they won.  2 of those are Mark Schoppe from Austin and the other is Jeremy that pointed that out.  We'll see if the streak lives another year.  :)  I obviously can't help since I didn't have anything advance.
