We have received an overwhelming positive response from the story about us that ran on the Associated Press wire. A heartfelt thanks goes out to everyone who contacted us.
Included in all of the well-wishing were invitations to beer festivals around the country. While we would love to be able to attend them all, the reality is that time and money are huge constraints on our ability to attend events outside of the YiB schedule.
With that said, we would like to announce two YiB Side Trips:
February 22-24: We will be in Denver for the Beer Drinker of the Year contest. Our friend, Matt Venzke, is one of the 3 finalists and we will be in Denver to cheer him on. I believe Matt has even agreed to wear the “Girls are beergeeks too” Thong during the swimsuit portion of the contest.
May 13-15: After our Franconia and Bergkirchweih Beer Festival travels, we will be meeting Ute and Wolfgang in Cologne for three Flogging Molly shows on successive nights… Cologne, Munich and Vienna. You will remember Ute and Wolfgang from our Bamberg episode of beergeekTV.
When other YiB Side Trips are finalized, we will let you know.
