Default Oshkosh - HBC Beer Tasting - Sunday 7/24

In nearly every cross country trip my RV makes, a beer exchange occurs more often than not. It's been a lot of fun for everyone involved - Great beer exchanged and a new friendship made! Why not bring this to Oshkosh???

With most nights of Oshkosh busy with events, I thought I'd try to put together a beer tasting on Sunday Night, July 24th at the west end of HBC (where the showers, tent and bathrooms are). The rules are simple - bring a 6 pack to represent where you come from (CA - I better see some Pliny the Elder!), and everyone shares. I'll bring a bunch of Solo cups so everyone can sample the imported goods.

I included a poll with this to see who's interested, but from the few people I've run this by, there will already be a handful of us there anyways in a beer swap gaggle.

Mike,

There are no good beers from my hometown. So in all regard, I lean back on my fail safe go to favorite hop of all....Sierra Nevada. I will surely bring a box with me!

Hey Guys, I live in in Grand Rapids, MI., Beer City USA!! We have over 50 craft brewers to pick from and more every month. I haven't even visited a majority of them. The wife and I are planning to come over on Sunday morning weather permitting and if so, will bring a 6 pack of assorted brews from the closest one to me. Can't tell you what it will be because they change all the time, but should be interesting to say the least. Hopefully see you there.

John - I'd happily pay you for a case of Heady Topper. I flew up to VT to go mountain biking at Kingdom Trails. That's where I was first introduced to Heady Topper. I have been unable to get a hold of any since. I've contemplated a number of times flying up to BTV to try to grab some.
