You could make a run for the border
and hit up Richmond, just south of Franklin.

You know, that guy with the "DOMESTIC ZYMURGYLOGICAL PARAPHENALIA"


Usually folks are going the other direction
looking for beer.

Looks like a pretty sweet place. I could even put my hops in the home made handbags.  ;D

Hi Brewing Rover. Yes, Beer nut is ok if I have another reason to go to the big city, I buy from them.     
 It's cheaper, and easier to online order from Northern, or Midwest. I do have trouble with yeast shipped in the summer.  You seem to know the area. There are no brew stores close to me here in Duchesne.
Where do you call home?

I'm near Chicago now but I grew up in Orem and lived in Salt Lake for 15 years before heading elsewhere. I used to fish with my grandfather on the Ute reservation and at Strawberry.
It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.

I'm Bryan, age 41.  I live in Roanoke, VA with my wife and 2 kids.  My wife and I are both elementary school teachers here in the city, which means I have lots of time in the summer to brew :P  I have been brewing for about 6 years, all grain for the last 5.  I brew on a Brew Sculpture from Beer Beer and More Beer.  I have been the treasurer, then VP, then Prez. of our local brew club the Star City Brewers Guild.  I was also BOY 2 years consecutively before becoming Prez and ruining the quality of my beer ;).  Lastly, I spend way too much time on forums like this one reading about all things beer.

Paul Wetzel, 38, CH-47F pilot in the US Army.  First batches were extract brews in 1998 when I lived in Lake Charles, LA where "good" beer was Miller Lite.  Moved to Vegas in 99 where there was good beer, so no need to brew anything.  I caught the bug again 2 years ago during my previous deployment to Afghanistan, and brewed close to 120 gallons in the year I was home.  This deployment should end in a couple months or so, and I have lots of plans for lots of brews.

Tomorrow will be 19 years since my first skydive, which I did professionally for a year and a half during my break in military service.  I'm up to 3500 jumps, 2200 of which have been as a tandem instructor. 

Currently stationed at Ft. Bragg, NC and deployed to Kandahar, Afghanistan.  4 1/2 years until I can retire and live off my pension and my awesome physical therapist wife's paychecks.  Such lofty goals, I know.

I mountain bike and geocache for fun.

That's all I have to say about that.

Hi folks,

Ron, 44 from Dover, DE.

I started brewing extract in 1993 and went all-grain several years ago.

I am the Quality Control Group Leader at the worlds leading manufacturer of Thermal Analysis and Rheology Instruments by day and the bass player and manager for the Tri-state areas most prominent Rockin' blues band "Dr. Harmonica and Rockett 88" by night.

I have been married to my lovely wife Rosemary for 4 years. I have two somewhat grown daughters, two beautiful dogs and two frisky felines.

My other hobbies include RVing, cooking and spending way too much time on brew forums.  ;D

  I bought a new Thermal Analysis meter the other day. The first time I analyzed some thermals, the dang probe fell off. Looks like you may have been asleep at the wheel!

Love those Chinooks.  You run JP-8?  Be safe over there and keep the shiny side up.....

If your instrument looks like this then yes, we must have fell asleep at the wheel.  ;)

A pair of Chinooks flew over my house a while back while I was mowing...the sound was so gloriously thunderous I couldn't help but feel a twinge of what I imagine would be an almost crippling fear it would strike in the heart of those on the receiving end.

That said, I'm still rooting for the midshipmen on Saturday.    ;D

Without fear of admitting the color of my neck, the pace car for the November NASCAR race at Texas Motor Speedway was delivered by a Chinook. Landed right on the front stretch and the car drove out the bay door. Got chills. Freakin awesome!
