And Tom, I plan on being in Seattle at the end of the year, if not before.  If I miss you in June, I'll catch you then.
Or both :)

Are you going to do a book signing while you're here?

If someone up there helps me arrange one, I will.  I'll be up there over Christmas and New Years.

I think to best hit your target audience we could arrange for you to give a talk, and then you can sell/sign books afterward.  It would take up a few hours one evening though, and attendance might be down because of the holidays.  We can talk, if it works out that would be great, if it doesn't, it doesn't.

Or, those of us w/ books to have signed could all just arrange to meet up somewhere (Brouwer's perhaps?)  Treat you to an evening of dinner & beers & get our signatures...  ;)

Either of those sounds good.  We can talk details in San Diego and set something up later in the year.

Gordon, will you be in Wisconsin in the near future?
Haven't planned it so far, but I do get up to Minnesota every so often.  If I drive, I go through Wisconsin.  Or you could make me a deal...  ;)  I speak at events and such.  Did that for people in Frankenmuth last month.

How about a few great cigars and all the homebrew you can drink?   ;D  I live only 2.5 hours from the Twin Cities and would definitely swing over there if you're giving a talk at an event.

"Order has shipped."

Wait...what?  Shipping already?  That would be awesome.

Do you think me beer will do better in the first round now that I will soon have this book?  :P

Yes, just owning the book is guaranteed to improve your beers' scores by 1 point compared to identical beers judged under identical conditions.  Reading it will get you 3 points more per beer, and applying it will get you 5-17 more points, depending. ;)

...and just waving the book over your fermentation vessel will give you 2 points for overall impression.  ;)

Don't forget too, grinding the book up & adding it to a batch will make that batch the BEST beer on Earth - ever!  ;)

In all honesty you have to hand it to Gordon. Anybody that can win three back to back Ninkasi awards is "the man" in my book(no pun intended yet)

Shipping already?  That's great.  Hopefully I get to actually see it soon.
