the wait is nearly over!!!

saturday (22nd), my wife and i are headed off to sunny california. its been over two years since ive been back to visit family and i am really looking forward to it. well, that and the opportunity to sample quite a few brews that have as yet eluded my grasp.

we will be gone for about three weeks with one week in the middle spent on a cruise up to alaska (not that im rubbing it in, just sharing). outside of that, i will do my best to try and report back about some of the more famous american micros and maybe even meet "randall".

Joe,

Have an awesome time and remember it is impossible to get drunk on holidays :p

Try all the beers and what you can't get through bring back. Order some gear from Morebeer.com and get it shipped to your family or hotel.

Have fun,
Doc

good on ya Joe
I would be hopeless if I went to the US, too many toys and shiny things to buy.
Any chance of pics when you get back?

Hope the cruise ship stops at Seattle

if so, head to the Elysium brewpub. Great beer and fishingpole lesbians (I am told)

otherwise, drink lots and lots of the great beers there that we can't get here

That is an awesome collection of beers joecast.
Looking forward to your comments/review of the Arrogant Bastard Ale. I bit the bullet and brewed it last week. Will rack it this weekend and have a taste.

So what was Greg like Joe ?
I've heard he is a real AB hence the name of the beer.

seemed like a pretty nice guy. maybe a bit of a party animal?? he did listen to me bitch about not being able to get stone down here so he must have lots of patience (as im sure he has heard this from countless people).
and no doubt he is a pretty good business man as with the following stone has in the US, there must be lots of people watching every move the company makes. so it was good to see him at a festival enjoying himself and not getting too removed from people who have just as keen an interest in beer as he does.
