I think we might need that made into a t-shirt... but would probably get sued.

Sorry folks, but NHC stands for at least a couple of things in our world. National Homebrew Contest and National Homebrewers Conference. We got tired of confusing these things and frankly, we wanted to freshen the convention perception. Therefore, you now have HomebrewCon. Yes, it is geeky, but its our new moniker.

At least until I get back on GC.....I'm mot convinced NHC needed a new name, but if it did, Homebrewcon ain't it.

"Don't I deserve a year off?" he said...I think we've seen what happens when we let Denny have his way. We should appoint "Denny HomebrewConn" for life!   8)

I've tried helping various volunteer groups in the past and I fully understand how frustrating it can be. You do something fairly benign to help and it can seem like all you get for it is sour grapes. Im in the cheap seats on this one because ive not been to HB Con yet. Having said that, I wonder if they polled the idea first. Seems like it would have been pretty easy to send out a random sample poll.

Honestly though, is Hombrew Con something so hideous that we need to get all lathered up over it? I say... ABSOLUTELY!  Being overcome by righteous indignation is what being an AMERICAN homebrewer is all about. First they came for my stirplate and I said nothing. They they took my 90 min boil, and still I said nothing. But I will not go quietly into the night! I will not go to a Homebrew Con without a fight! I will shout "NHC, NHC, NHC!" with all my might! My god man, where will our traditions be if we fail to do the same things we always do?

My name is Klickitat Jim, and I approve this message


Not really, im actually fine calling it whatever.

Are you running under the name Denny "Don't call it Homebrew" Conn?   ;)

Edit: I see that udub (kind of) beat me to the "pun"ch.  I thought of this hours ago, I swear!

If we don't, we might end up facing the wrath of Conn. (I tried…)

On that note, I'm honestly considering some sort of star trek shirt to wear to the event in a sort of protest...
Corn is a fine adjunct in beer.

And don't buy stale beer.

Oh, the possibilities!

Edit - if someone has good photoshop skills, a T-shirt with Denny's face, and Kahn's torso, and some logo/meme, is something I would pay money for. Yes I would.

HomebrewCon will attract the youngsters. You could shorten it to HBC if you don't like the long version.

I don't think it's legal to market to 16 year olds.

Well, I b****ed about this on the latest podcast.  It'll be out next Wed.

I might take a stab at that t-shirt. Would make a funny as hell photo with Denny at NHC Homebrew Conn.
