---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Fri, 29 Feb 2008 11:16:42 -0500 From: "jeff_ri" <jeff_ri at cox.net> Subject: re: Brew Pub Hi All, In HBD# 5302 Pete Limosani asked some questions about opening a small brew pub in central CT. I don't have any personal experience doing this, but you should definetly talk to Dave Wollner at Willimantic Brewing Co (http://www.willibrew.com/) in Willimantic, CT. Dave is the owner and brewer. I'm sure he probably wouldn't mind discussing this with you and would have lots of insight in CT alcohol laws, taxes, and insurance (which all vary state to state).

Date: Sat, 01 Mar 2008 11:56:08 -0500 From: "David Houseman" <david.houseman at verizon.net> Subject: Notice for AHA 1st Round Northeast-Region National Homebrew Judges, We are preparing to send EMAIL to judges in the region and found many without valid EMAIL addresses. You are still invited to contact me to judge. Do update the BJCP with a current, valid EMAIL address. The Northeast Regional judging for the 1st Round of the National Homebrew Competition will be held the weekend of April 25-27 at the Yards Brewery (www.yardsbrewing.com) in Philadelphia. Yards is located at 901 N. Delaware Avenue in Philly. Check out Mapquest or Yahoo! Maps for location and directions. For those of you have judged this competition before expect the same great time with excellent judges and friends from the region. Perhaps the new location to be a big improvement over last year. For those of you who haven't this is a great opportunity to judge in the largest home brew competition in the world. We expect to be judging on Saturday and Sunday, although the number of flights and time needed to judge will depend on the number of entries we receive and the number of judges who commit to judging. We may do some judging on Friday night for anyone who is available. While the details haven't been fully worked out expect to start judging on Saturday AM at 9am, on Sunday at 12:00 and if we judge on Friday night it will be about 7:30pm. Details will be provided closer to the competition. This year we will be judging Cider in addition to the Mead and Beer categories. This will be a chance to try some of the best ciders made in the US. We are planning a review of Cider judging preceding those flights, likely Sunday AM, again depending on the final schedule. Just reply to me to be put on the list to judge. Let me know which day(s) you will be available, what categories you want to judge, do not want to judge and can't judge because you plan to enter those categories. We will make an attempt to honor your requests if at all possible but someone has to judge the least favorable categories and not everyone can judge the most popular ones. So reserve the weekend of April 25-27 and plan to judge in Philadelphia. Let me know that you can judge. If you know someone who'd like to steward, let me know as well; we can use several. There is no need to respond if you cannot judge.

Date: Sat, 1 Mar 2008 01:56:28 -0500 (EST) From: "Pat Babcock" <pbabcock at hbd.org> Subject: Wow! Sorry... Greetings, Beerlings! Take me to your mailbox - STAT! My apologies for the mass of probe messages some of you received 1 March 2008. A malformed crontab entry caused it to continuously invoke the probe program starting at 12:00 am, and I did not detect the problem until about 2:00am. Unfortunately, there were so many in the mailqueue that I could not delete them, even with sendmail and web services shut down. (This was the cause of the "quiet time" for a bout 12 hours when the extra notes stopped flowing. Had to open sendmail back up to let it reduce its queue until I could invoke queue editors without crashing the server in total. In any case: may fault. All fixed. Won't happen again - I promise! - -- See ya! Pat Babcock in SE Michigan Chief of HBD Janitorial Services http://hbd.org pbabcock at hbd.org Return to table of contents
