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.
