    So I'll be going to the NHC in Philly this year. Anyone else going? I'll be carpooling there from MI with 3 buddies and the girlfriend (who is also a homebrewer).

    Last year in Seattle was my first NHC. I had a blast. I also learned quite a bit at the seminars and speaking with all the homebrew 'celebs'.

    Anyone in the area know of any good breweries we should stop at on the way? We'll basically be covering the entrie span of the southern half of the state of PA.

    I have no idea, but I love how you justified the girlfriend as a home brewer. :-)) Nothing about the other buddies, who are really into scrap booking.

    June 27-29

    i believe it's sold out already. I should have posted the registration info.

    as far as beer in the area, it's not a brewery, but go to Monk's. It's the best beer selection you have ever witnessed.... trust me.

    Yes the Venue this year was 105% bigger than last year. It hasn't been on the East coast in a number of years so there was pent up demand. It sold out in 20 hours. The other buddies brew beer...but my girlfriend brews more than them...but not as much as me... They might be into scrap booking. I'll have to ask.

    Thanks for the Monk's Cafe suggestion. I have def heard about that one and will need to go there.

    Make sure you bring back lots of pictures. I'd love to see a few pictures inside monks, maybe a shot of the beer list! It's been a while since I've been back there.

    If you go anywhere near State College .... stop at a basement bar called Zeno's ......
    Awesome selection on tap ....
    Never attribute to malice, that which can adequately be explained by stupidity.

    Looks like that is a bit further north than we'll probably be.
