BEERBOCON 2014 is Coming!


SCHEDULE BLAWG HERE!!!


MARK YO CALENDAR'S FOR THE WEEKEND OF JUNE 7TH!


That's right y'all. It's Beerbocon season! Priscilla is unable to plan this year's festivities, so I figured "Hey, I'm a person" and jumped on board to host the festivities. It also helps that I live in the wonderful city of Milwaukee, AKA Brew City, which will be the home to this year's fun!


Milwaukee is home to some great craft beers and breweries, so we're going to try our best to drink as many of them as we can. We'll enjoy some brewery tours, local eats, drinks, the art museum, drinks, take in the city, and did I mention, drinks?


Activities are still to be planned, but here's a few samples of potential visiting spots:


LAKEFRONT BREWERY
Named the #4 Top Brewery Tour in America, Lakefront Brewery's tour includes a souvenir pint glass, four pours of beer and a coupon for a complimentary beer before 6PM at one of many local Milwaukee bars.



MILWAUKEE BREWING COMPANY


SPRECHER BREWING CO.


GREAT LAKES DISTILLERY
It may not be beer. But Milwaukee is also home to some damn fine Vodka, Gin and Whiskey which you can all sample and instantly get drunk with on this tour.


THE MILWAUKEE ART MUSEUM
Did you know we have an awesome art museum? You like art, right?


Also, did I mention I love this city?


So, hey. There's still much to plan! But now it's time to let me know your interest! Let's get a YEAH! and MAYBE! list going. Let me know if you'd like to come. It's gonna be so drunk!


GET READY TO DRANK JUNE 7-8 2014


(Other days too if you want)


YEAH!

Hey, I live right near there. Can I come?

no

That works out, actually, because this is literally the one weekend in all of June when I have to work.

Where the hell is this Milwaukee place? I have only been across the Southern US and up and down the coasts.

The closest I have been to St. Louis; close but no cigar. I would love to go but the distance is a bit of stretch for me

Put me down as a maybe. It's right around my husband's birthday so I need to check plans. If we could add a stop to the Palomino to the agenda he'd totally be in.

Just as long as you're aware that they no longer serve sweet potato tots. I was crushed during my last visit.

I just might go! FOR REALZ. Looking into flights.

It would be even cheaper for me to take a bus to Chi and fly out of O'Hare. Would any Chicago/Threadless peeps be interesting in hanging out before heading to Milwaukee?

Amtrak from Chicago to MKE is cheap and fast. $24 each way.
