    Central Waters, Dark Horse, Half Acre, Lakefront, Perennial, Revolution, Surly, White Winter are all bringing it strong in my opinion.

    Goose Island, New Glarus, Bells, Shorts, and a number of others not so much.

    I'm just happy that I'll be pouring (Imperial Oak) right in the middle of everything this year. Come see us at Booth 317.

    I would be careful to assume everything listed are the only beers being brought to the event.

    Off Color is at 328, and White Winter is 207. We are 317.

    So yes really close to Off Color and just a tent away from White Winter.

    It's been an off year at the Dunt household. I promise to shape up for 2018.

    Do any of you clowns get around to bottle sharing or anything after the event (not that I'm going to need to drink more)?

    Was contemplating bring a bottle or two with me just in case (something like Atrial and Midnight Still)

    a group of people that i've known for years now gets together post-taste at a local campground for general shenaniganery

    it's possibly the most challenging drinking of the year

    pros power through it

    Yes. The hotels are a drunken riot.

    Old pros - those of us approaching 100 years old, or feeling like it - just go back to the hotel for a four hour nap afterwards, then get up, eat dinner, & go back to sleep for another twelve or so.

    Ah, to be young & 74 again.
