Beer Bloggers Conference Wrap Up Day 1
Just got back from Indianapolis Indiana late Sunday night. Why was I there well if you did not know by now I went for the 3rd Annual Beer Bloggers Conference. My 3rd year of attending and from the looks of it I will be going for quite some time. People ask me all the time, “Why do I go?” I will answer with the following. This is a 3 part piece so you come back each day and read. I give you permission to have a beer for each day’s blog. Now go get that first beer.
Thursday – Sit back, relax, I got a story for you. Arrived in Chicago yes I know it’s not Indy but you will see why. Now back to the story. A few beer bloggers figured we are this close to Chicago why not have some pre-conference activities there. So I embark to the hotel and soon met up with many other bloggers as we where about to have a great night. Our first stop was Goose Island Clybourn for a 4 course beer and food pairing. Terrific food, beer and friends (bloggers) this was awesome. Next we head for a few more stops. We imbibed at Haymarket Pub and Brewery, Revolution Brewing and Piece Brewing and Pizza. So by now I am sure our seeing why I went. Were there any stand out beers just read on and just imagine these cold beers. – Goose Island Madam Rose Flanders Oud Burin. Haymarket Brewing – Angry Bird Belgian IPA, Revolution Brewing – Repo Man Rye Stout and Piece Brewing – Roland the Headless Assistant Brewer Oatmeal Stout. These are just a few of many that were drunk. After this crawl ended adding anoother tap house near the hotel to have a few more brews just was not the best idea it was getting late and there is a 8:30am bus arrivial to head to Indy in the morning. Going to bed around 2am by the way. I am getting very tired. I got up at 3am to fly to Chicago so I am super beat. Stay tuned for Day 2, Day 3 and Day 4’s Activites. Will BrewDad ever get a good night sleep? Will BrewDad find that Ultimate Barley Pop he has been looking for? Will the evil keg conquer? Come back same beer time, same beer blog.
