Are tickets sold out already?
They will probably go on sale in Mid March. Last year was right around or on St. Patty's day.

Any of you San Diego folks ever go to Acoustic Ales? Just stumbled across them on the interwebz. Looks decent.

Road tripping from the Twin Cities to Grand Rapids for the weekend, will be going through Madison and Chicago. Will for sure be hitting up Founder's Taproom in Grand Rapids and picking up a variety of 3 Floyds along the way. Any locals have any other beer or taproom suggestions?

They have amazing stuff.

Thanks for the suggestions, guys. Will have to check them out.

I didn't even realize Munster, IN was right on the way. Guess I'll be checking out the 3 Floyds Brewpub! :pint:

Hit up Ale Asylum in Madison. Great food and even better beer! Also, try Karbon4. They're not too far from Ale Asylum so you could do both pretty easily. If you're more by Wily Street, definitely check out Bilbo Baggins from One Barrel Brewing.

In Michigan you can hit up Bells , Dark Horse, Greenbush, Perrin, possibly Odd Side in addition to Founders. All great stuff.

Over the weekend I setup my hand-me-down Kegerator. My grandpa bought it before he passed, and had used it once, so it's old, but looks and runs like new.

I pretty much replaced all of the beer delivery system parts with new parts, including faucet, lines, keg coupler. Part of my plan is to have a quick disconnect system where I can switch to a corny keg in the future if I ever have a home brew in one, while also being able to fit a normal 1/6 barrel keg, using a low profile coupler. I was a little concered a 1/6 barrel and a normal coupler would be too tight, but in retro, it might have fit okay.

It's pretty neat having beer on tap in the kitchen.

For my first keg I grabbed a 1/6 barrel Boulvard Tank 7. Here is the finished setup:

Here's a peak inside:

First keg was pretty easy to decide on. I'm a pretty big fan of boulevard with them being "local". After that it's going to be a little more tricky to decide.

Dont forget The Mitten in GR has great beer and pizza.

The sandwiches at Founders are amazing! You have to try their food.

Have fun!!
