    Attn Beer Snobs - Firkin Fest 2011 Almost Here!!

    Me and some buddies are going to this on Saturday, so I just wanted to rub it in to any of you that would be jealous..... ;) Check out the beer line-up we'll get to indulge in at the bottom of the following link:

    Firkin Fest 2011

    If anyone is ever thirsty and in St. Paul, the Happy Gnome is a great place to get a great beer. They always have an awesome selection on tap.

    I am jealous. Some pretty tasty sounding brews there. Seems like some of them are one-offs and stuff you won't see anywhere else.

    Yes sir, I believe every Firkin will be brewed especially for this event and some of them are specialty one-off's as you stated. Included will be New Belgium's Super Cru, which won't be released until June and is a new variation of Fat Tire. All of the IPA's and DIPA's excite me the most though.....the more hops, the better for me. :)

    Jealous. I'm making my first ever homebrew this weekend, so that should be fun! Going to brew a nut brown ale.

    Nice, home brewing is a lot of fun......I've got an IPA and a Honey Steam Lager fermenting right now. Just remember, sanitation is important! ;)

    There's also a lot of good information on the web if you need it. I've learned a lot from Midwest Supplies and had a lot of help from friends..... Midwest is also really good about answering any questions you have over the phone if needed.

    Yup, Midwest has been my go to store... they are great. And I'm reading 'How to Brew' by Palmer. Fantastic book. Homebrewtalk.com has been greatly helpful too, sooooo much info there.

    But anyway, I'll stop hijacking your thread!
