    First session again. Not sure what after. Meat pies at Pleasant House again maybe.
    Mmmmmmmmmeat pie. Nummy.

    Hoping for Bourbon County Barleywine and maybe a little more Apple Brandy Bourbon County. And 100 other world class treats from all the heck over.

    Last year GI brought the goods so I'm assuming they will this year. They'd be stupid not bring the barleywine and the BCBS variation station from last year was magical.

    1st Session 3rd year in a row. Can't wait. My future father in law tagging along again this year. He couldn't understand how he was going to get drunk off 3 oz samples last year when I warned him to take it slow. He ended up attempting to smoke a cigar on the bus and pissed on the red line platform. Good times.

    1st session right now. Supposed to be 5 of us going and 2 guys got 2nd session on accident (no idea how you screw that up?). So, I might be trading for 2nd session, since it seems like everyone wants 1st session.

    If i need to switch one I definitely will. Problem is there is 3 of us that will try to switch to 2nd session, and if we can't we will probably just stay with the 1st session. I don't really care either way, just trying to get all of us in the same session.

    2nd session. It's my first time going and I'm really excited. It seems like a lot of the local breweries are planning on bringing some amazing stuff.

    Let's all not forget they added a Mead and Cider category this year. Heads will roll.

    I did not hear this. Not a huge mead or cider guy but will definitely try some. I think its mostly the price vs not sure if I will like it enough to justify cost.
