It’s only day 2, and I just can’t keep up. Drink beer or blog – those are my choices, and I choose beer.
So for those who care, let me just tell you where we’ve been, and not elaborate on how much tremendous fun we are having (or how horrible the traffic has been.) We are heading into Madison tonight, but our day went something like this:
- Liquor Stop distributor in Highland, IN was our first stop for bottles of Three Floyd’s and other things we can’t get in PA (I also got a good deal on Chateau St. Jean CabSav – 2003)
- Piece in Chicago for awesome (AWESOME!) beer and pizza
- Lakefront in Milwaukee for a tour and tasting (where I got to be “Shirley” (of Laverne and…), and we got lots of free beer and a pint glass!); you can take your own tour at their site
- and now we are sitting at Tyranena, using the wi-fi and enjoying Scurvy IPA
Tonight we will end up in Madison, where there are many, many special release parties all over town, 105 breweries represented at the festival tomorrow, and more parties in town again tomorrow night. Hooray for a town with fabulous public transportation!
I’ll write when I can, but don’t hold your breath!
