      Our micro brewery's suck here and I dont like it however I shall be bringing Alexander Keiths, Molson Canadian, and Canadian Pabst Blue Ribbon.

      For any of my American friends that know me, will vouch on my behalf that Canadian brewed PBR decimates all beer for the most part

      How about some Tim Horton's coffee and donuts instead?

      I'll be making the trek down with a lot of New England Brewing goodies from CT.

      ein can attest to how good some of their beers taste from years past.

      Ithaca beers will be in my hand, apricot, pale ale, wheat or nut brown, probably a mixture of all.

      Shipyard is on tap here in Baltimore at at least one fine drinking establishment. I still have not been to the beer store. But I will be bringing a few other Baltimore favorites, Natty Boh not included.

      It probably wont be around anymore but I vote for some Fuzzy Baby Ducks! That is a killer IPA

      The brewery is closed on Sundays. Are you talking about the brewpub? I like visiting the pub but you couldn't pay me enough to go to either place on this particular weekend.

      H2O is the same weekend as their Dogfish Dash which means thousands of runners and their families trying to pack into the brewery / pub all weekend making it next to impossible to get a single seat, let alone a table.

      I would drink the **** out of a beer called Fuzzy Baby Ducks! That is a great name!

      Is it too soon to start counting down? I am really looking forward to H2O this year.

      Good for you, keep driving your Mazda with the vanity plate "PRINCIPLES" and I'll drive my "MAN LOVE"-plated 911 to my paid-for house while wiping McRib juice off my mouth

      For SoWo I made a google docs spreadsheet For everyone to go on and put what they were bringing and if they were requesting anything. I'll make another one up tomorrow and add the link to the bottom of my original post.

      One of my favorites, actually drank one earlier today at VAG fair. If nobody from Vermont brings any I will bring you one. I will be in Vermont the weekend before the show and I will be picking up a few cases.

      And had one of these (good, summery but not too light) -


      And one of these (Delicious! Would make a great ice cream float.) -


      Butternuts is in Upstate NY and this was the first time I tried it. Really good. There was an IPA and a pale ale, both waaaay too hoppy for my taste, but husband said they were both really good.

      No IPA is too hoppy for me.

      This is one of my favorites: http://21st-amendment.com/beer/brew-free-or-die-ipa

      Had that the last time I was in San Francisco. They also have an awesome black IPA.

      I'll bring some Mad Anthony's Brewery, dunno what kind yet but I'd guess a dark lager.

      Speaking of New Belgium, my local bar now carries 1554 in bottles, which makes me happy.
