Postby Cass » Sun Mar 30, 2014 2:05 pm

CBC 2014 is coming up in just over a week in Denver, Colorado.

Who's going this year?

First of two preview articles now live - where to drink in Denver:

Mark and I are heading down on Tuesday morning. A tough decision, but we'll be skipping the Welcome Reception in favour of a Rockies Game @ Coors Field.

Very handy blog post and map. Looking forward to 2/2 as I already have my seminar schedule all planned-out and want to see if your post will inspire any big changes :D

Unfortunately I'm out this year (heading off on a two week vacation to S.American in a month) but Brock, Dave and Kyle will be attending. I'm extremely jealous.

Have fun everyone!

Not to derail the topic of CBC...

Whereabouts in SA? I'm in Ecuador until early May, then back to Peru. Have uncovered more than 20 new breweries/brewpubs here since last visiting at the end of 2012, things are getting interesting....sadly 9/10 are still uninspired. A lot of new stuff going on in Peru these days too.

Well isn't that convenient! I'll be in Peru mid to late May. Send me a message here, I'd love to get your suggestions. Cheers!

I'll drop you a note Mike....perhaps we'll cross paths in Peru, once I know my plans.

A - some good beer options in both Cusco and Lima. Will be sure to report back after I get there ;)
