    The miramar location would have helped if you could bring games across the threshold into the brewery and beer into the gaming store. That little stupid rule alone set up that location for just bleeding money.

    Camping out at O'Brien's is always a good option as well.

    I'm selfishly happy to see them kicking a few things over to West Coast BBQ these days as well. Moksa takeover, Fieldwork night, and a Strong Ale weekend are all on my agenda.

    ABC dicks. I was supposed to have judging at Wild Barrel last Saturday for the sour beer competition I run and they said they couldn’t have Homebrew on premise even as a private event. Which is not true, that became legal several years ago.

    Word. I purposely skipped out on other stuff because I knew Woodshop would be coming to wreck me.

    Same, I skipped any friday events so that I could recoup from the week and carbo-load in preperation and then also skipped on Barrel Night since I didn't think it would be wise to do both. Ah well, the shitty archaic uninterpretable rules police that hates fun strikes again.

    Basically, "The reason for our event postponement is because of ABC concerns that unexpectedly arose due to listing the event on Brown Paper Tickets, which technically classifies it as a “public event” per the ABC. We had never experienced this concern in the 13+ years of Woodshop events across multiple venues and cities."


    ABC slapped cquiroga hand and said "no, stop it, bad."

    There was more in the email about discussions trying to get whatever issues ABC had resolved, but didn't work out. =(

    +1, hot damn is this beer great. kingg wasn't joking when he told me that Mikkeller SD surpassed Bine Mender. Phenomenal barrel character, great coffee, and a deep chocolate profile from the base...just outstanding. If you haven't grabbed a can (or more), you're missing out.

    Wild Barrel is has been wanting to add a patio space and of course needed to get the ABC's approval. On the 25th they were there and the homebrew competition and Woodshop got brought up. The ABC agent told them that neither could be hosted there based on their license. I had less than 24 hours to scramble to find a new judging venue and lost quite a few judges in the process. I was hoping with Woodshop would have been resolved in time but it's sad to hear that did not happen.

    I'm sure such events will be fine in the future once things settle out as the laws do allow breweries to host private events (be it with homebrew or off premise brewed beers).

    I was minutes away from booking my lodging when the bad news came out. Still might boogie down this weekend.
