Yes and yes to hop leaf AND map room. Can't wait. We're going to Milwaukkee as well if anyone wants to meet up at Northern Brewer. Sad that there's not much in the way of fresh beer to be found in Saline or Faulkner counties.
Before/after the Map Room, head to Revolution. They are brewing some seriously good beers and have a lot of guest taps. If you're lucky they'll have their porter on cask.
Haymarket should also be on Phil's radar along with Revolution.

Ended up only being able to make it out to Revolution. Glad to be back home in France now, though - it got to be pretty overwhelming not to have a routine every day other than shop/eat/shop/drink. Next time, we rent a cabin somewhere and only do a single day of shopping.

Made it out to Northern Brewer's Milwaukee shop. Wow. Spent close to 500 euros on random stuff, but at least now I have nice quick disconnects and a real grain mill.

Revolution had some great beers, particularly working woman brown. "Stronger, more bitter and with more perfume than the workingman." Got a growler of that one.
