    Re: Almost on topic

    This is a good idea. I'm bringing down a few 4-ers (they come in pints) of Furious.

    Now I wonder what the rules are regarding alcohol at the venue and in general. I'm always careful not to offend when I bring beer since I know some people and lots of venues are anti alcohol.
    Since we'll be at a college, we can pretend to be students and keep a 12 on ice out in the trunk ;)

    Gotta love it when thoughts turn to beer. I am very lucky to be living in San Diego, liking craft beer and homebrewing: http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/top-50/

    Alesmith, Stone and Lost Abbey are all local, easy to get their beers at the source. Just 3 out of 32 breweries in the San Diego area. The National Homebrew Convention will be in San Diego next June.

    How come there is never a DIY speaker event in SoCal? Maybe not enough builders down here? I don't notice many posters from this area.

    Cheers!

    It drives the elitists up a wall when I extol the virtues of Grainbelt but... I just laugh and love it.

    Me too. They're right down the street from here. My old Church had their church auction there for the last few years. Admission to the auction includes an open bar, woohoo!

    Otherwise SKA Brewing Decadent IPA is one of my favorites.

    We also make Surly, which everyone should try if they haven't.

    My favorite wines are Chateauneuf-du-Papes and Lalande-de-Pomerols ..

    My favorite scotch is the Ardbeg.

    Also, who keeps rating every thread one star? It's weird.
    New Ulm, Minnesota. Schell brewery - like Wonka's Chocolate factory to me Took a tour, awesome place, been there forever.
