Judging we will done all weekend, but the Dude know how to unwind with a little Belgian night on Friday night.  Break out your best bathrobe for fun and prizes.  Bring your Belgian beer and the stinkiest cheese you can find for a night that would make even Jackie Treehorn blush!  Please remember if you can not bring a beer or cheese, have good karma and feed the BEAST!

Saturday, yes, I know it is Shabbos, but Walter can attend because it is an emergency!  We have a fun talk with some Central Florida Brewers about the state of brewing in Florida.  No, there will not be a rug to bring the room together, but we will have a nice round table.

Beverage glassAfter that, pile on to the bus as we hit 3 of Orlando’s finest Craft Brew bars.  Tickets will be $30 dollars.

After that, we have planned a far out room  hop planned.  If you want to be a stop on the room hop, e-mail at  You will not have to be like Jesus and go door to door to tell people that you are a home brewer, we know that already!

The awards brunch will be Sunday at 11:30 am in the grand ballroom.  Ticket price is $30.  A far out menu is being planned and a suitcase of prizes for our raffle will be abound! No, we will not be raffling off a rusted out El Cameno and the only green stuff maybe be some hops!

Even if you not believe in nothing, come and spend the weekend with us.  Your weekend is in your hands, your weekend is in your hands!.  Make sure your homework is done and that you have the Credence in the tape deck.  No Marmots or any other pets are allowed. No peeing on the rugs and remember Donnie in your  thoughts.
