Central Waters

So I'm super stoked to be going to the Central Waters Release/bday party.I just booked my room at the hotel nearby so I can really get after all that awesome brew. I will be getting first crack at all the phenominal seasonal releases that seem to just trickle into Milwaukee. I might have to rent a uhaul for all the cases I plan on buying. Should be a fantastic time. I have my fingers crossed for some special aged stouts to be tapped throughout the evening! Hope to see you there.

BA get together!

It's time for a BA get together. Come one come all! Friday Feb. 26 at 7:00 pm at Sugar Maple in Bay View. I figure I keep talking about it. It's time to put it out there. Come out and drink and get to know the beer buddies you post and rate beers with online. Check out Sugar Maple in beerfly on BA or at this link sugarmaple

I can't wait to see all of you there.

Back to normal?

Well I'm back at work today for the first time in eleven days. To make things worse the heat is out in my office so I'm posting this in my jacket and winter skull cap. It just cracked the 50 degree mark on my T-stat! WHOO HOO! I'm shipping a couple trades today so that's got me excited for sure. This means lots of yummy beer coming back my way from buddies around the country. I'm especially looking forward to Short's PB&J beer. Who wouldn't want a beer that tastes like the quintessential lunchbox fare from days as a school boy.

The little lady and I also booked our tickets to Minneapolis for our trip in Feb. Surly here I come! I plan on grabbing as much beer as I can. Along with tours of Surly and Summit. We hope to hit all the cool beer spots in town.

Soap box time

I've noticed quite a trend in the Southeast Wisconsin area. Not enough beer advocacy! I'm a member of Beer Advocate and Beer Buffalo Lodge and heavily active on both sites. Why is it that the "brew city"is so devoid of people who want to talk about beer. The WI representation on BA is atrocious and over at BBL it's mainly myself and the three founding members who do all the talking. Come on people we don't bite. Come out of you BMC coma and start talking and drinking good beer. When I went to the Great Lakes Brewfest this summer I emailed everyone on the list of names that BA had listed as going. Why did not one Milwaukee BA show up and drink one beer with me. One BA from from the Mequon area and four from Illinois met up with me. Seriously? Not one person from "brew city" could take five minutes to meet another like minded beer geek and say hi?

I guess living under the Miller spell for so long has broken every ones will to seek something different. Please prove me wrong "brew city"
