The crickets chirping here would indicate that, no, to answer your question.

Nice work Steve!!!

I am somewhat crowd adverse (more than 20 people in my local pub makes me want to go home), so the only beer fests I volunteer at are to judge, quietly, behind closed doors.

'Cause no one knows what goes on behind closed doors.

Behind...closed...doors.

No, my closest milestone is tonight we are going to an Anniversary party for a brewery. They are celebrating their 22 year and IIRC the first party we attended was year 5. That would make tonight year 18 for attending.

I almost forgot about it. We were thinking of a trip somewhere over the July 4 holiday so I put it out of my mind. My wife asked me last week if we were going and of course we are!!! What is interesting is most people do not know, nor attend, this party. It celebrates the first place and date the beer was served.
It's not a popularity contest, it's beer!

Good job, Steve!  I've never even made it to OBF.  I was considering it this year, but it turns out I'll be in Chile for the S. American Homebrew Cup.

As long as you have a good excuse.  :)
I'm sure I'll be pouring again next year also. If you make it I'll buy you a full mug, or two.

They should give a medal next year for your 20th anniversary.
