Since the National Homebrewers Conference is in Orlando this year, and pretty close to Savannah, a number of our club members are planning to attend. None of us have ever gone before. Probably will set up for Club Night since we have a club group brew (barrel aged tripel) we can bring. Was wondering what other fun things go on at the conference and what to expect. Anyone been?

Club Night is probably the highlight. I've never seen so many people having so much fun drinking so much homebrew.

I always like the finals of the National Homebrew Competition, but I'm a judge. I recommend volumteering as a steward if you have any interest whatsoever in competitions. You'll meet some of the luminaries (such as they are) of homebrewing and sample some of the world's best (I honestly believe this) beers. I'd stack the NHC final round medal-winning beers against the GABF winners anytime.

Some of the best of the parties go on during the wee hours in various suites at the convention hotel.
