Steps 2, 3, 4 DONE!

The pic may be blurry (it was shot through my eyeballs), but clearly, there's draft available. The tap handle was installed for photo cred (if you want one, you'll have to open a commercial account). It looks like LBL 2010 should be extraordinary!

Step 1-check!

Schnoctobeerfest 2009

Going into Saturday, I was truthfully, worried. Several people had cancelled, due to various reasons, and the weather forecast had turned colder. I needn't have worried; we had several surprise participants & the weather was perfect for wool (with little wind). The ride commenced at 10 am & the group quickly broke into two groups. Everyone re-united at the first beerstop, where a curious thing happened: it was so cold that no one drank a beer! As a group, we made the decision to make our stops short, as we had smoked brisket & a giant ice barrel of tasty brews waiting for us at CiTy BiLLy World Headquarters. We did manage to stop at Irv's and have a barley pop & then trudged back to Elkhorn. After eating a mind blowing meal, the difficult job of beer judging began. Winners in no particular order included Modus Hoperandi (ska brewing) , Sierra Nevada Pale Ale & Blonde (Lee's excellent homebrew).
