    I'm so mad I have a wedding that weekend in Seattle. Ken Schramm and Jace Marti would both be awesome to hear speak about their respective specialties.

    Didn't get to do as much as I wanted, but had a good time.
    • Butcher and the Boar was flat out amazing.
    • Psycho Suzi's was fun. We sat on the deck Monday night, and it was 65 degrees and beautiful.
    • Town Hall had good food and decent beer.
    • Republic is a great bar with a good selection.
    • Blackstack was good, but only 5 beers on.
    • Surly tour and dinner was great. Bought some cool schwag too.

    Lots of good stuff being brewed up there. Personally, I think Hoops is the best all-around.

    Bent Paddle and Castle Danger are both great. Across the bridge in Superior thirsty pagan was good from what I remember and for liquor stores you should check out keyport liquors. Nick Casper who is the beer manager does a great job.

    Keep in mind that you may have to refinance your house though if you do.

    I went to Firkin Fest at the Happy Gnome yesterday, and it was awesome. If you get the chance, give it a whirl, each brewery makes something specifically for the event.

    Any of you guys pick up one of the Fulton -mixed BA 4 packs? I really like the move from bombers to 12 oz cans

    Black Stack has been on fire recently. I like Local 755, but I loved On One and Thread Count. Sent all three in a BIF and they were reviewed very positively
