I haven't been on the forum much lately - is anyone coordinating the third installment of the OBH Craft Beer Extravaganza?

yes - I've started discussing with others and will likely host (we have a suite with another couple at stage front).  I'll bring the Heady Topper, Tree House and Lawsons ;)

Are you guys in MMJ Fan Club or OBF on FB?  If so, I'll send out an Event Invite soon - waiting to see the music schedule and activities they will be having so we can avoid conflicts

I'm only on here, but we're still friends on FB, Justin.

Did you host this during OBHs 1 & 2? It seems so long ago...

I attended the first year, but I think I missed the beer share at OBH2 (probably side tracked sharing something else lol).  Will def bump this post when we firm up plans so no one gets missed

now I'm going home to drink some Trillium - cheers!!!

You from the Boston area? I was reading this thread and thinking I could bring some Merlcher St that I was drinking on tap last night.

Forgive the ignorance of this infrequent flyer, but how does one go about transporting beer to the Hard Rock Riviera Maya?

pack into your checked bag.

Ah, checked bag. I managed to make it with just a carry on last time, was planning to do the same this time.

Seems simple enough, though. Thanks!

yes, cannot bring in a carry on. So you'll have to decide if it's worth it to pay for a checked bag. Also, I can't recall the amount, but you can only bring a certain amount of fluid ounces, I want to say it was the equivalent of about 3 large format bottles.

definitely checked bag - not certain on limits - an empty poster tube can double as a handy and sturdy can carrier - you can also pack individually in sealed bags and then into a soft cooler inside your checked bag.  I'm hoping to bring at least 6 16-oz cans (Tree House, Trillium and Alchemist so I can share the holy trinity of NE juice bombs)

Poster tube, great idea! Count me and my wife in. Any Texas requests?

I've heard good things about Deep Ellum if you can get it

Update - I looked at TSA rules for transporting beer - definitely checked bags only and up to 3 Liters total per person is OK without declaring (and has to be below 12%ABV - rules change for alcohol over 24 proof for some reason).  So, up to 6 16-oz cans or 4 750ml bottles is OK.

You could effectively double that if you're travelling as a couple (I have some doubts that Mrs. Miller wants to sacrifice the space or weight, but I'll try my best ;)

Yeah, Deep Ellum is no problem. Most of the good Texas stuff comes in 12 oz, so we should be able to bring a nice variety with 16 beers.

I'm in and can bring Atlanta/Athens beers.  Probably the 2 biggest names in Georgia are Creature Comforts and the new Scofflaw beers are excellent too

spacewolf

I'd love to get in on this. I have a little brewery in Baltimore (www.unioncraftbrewing.com). I'll bring some suds for you guys to try. Just about to drop this next week (please don't repost anywhere yet  :thumbsup:)




And...Hey Walterfredo! Hope you're well buddy.

Crispy

Awesome, spacewolf!

I just picked up a couple of Prairie Pirate Noirs, so I'll be bringing one of those plus a couple other Okie selections.
