AND NOW SOMETHING FOR THE BEER NUTS (you know who you are) - I'm heading to Montreal this coming Sunday to attend the largest BEER festival in North America. For those of you who really know me, this is a huge sacrifice but "market research" must be done! As is the custom, upon my return there will be "goodies" for you to enjoy and The Spitfire Arms Alehouse will be having another BEER TASTING NIGHT. I'll let you know the details later.Wee gifties. Everyone loves wee gifites. Then again, there are these plans for the brewer of Belgian ales Ommegang about three hours south of here:

This is the weekend that 3000 crazed long-distance canoeists descend on the Cooperstown area for the race from the mouth of the susquehanna River at Lake Otsego, in Cooperstown proper, to Bainbridge, 70 miles distant. What in Gods good name would make someone want to do this? Maybe it's because Ommegang will be offering camping for canoeists, family, friends, and anyone who wants to stay on the brewery grounds. Beer sales, music and other amusements, including late night bonfires and story-telling According to Ommegang, they will supply the bonfires, you supply the stories! Camping fee of $15 per night, or $45 for the weekend.
