I'd like to say that I found the 1992 Conference to be very useful. All the
sessions I attended were well prepared, presented, and interesting. The general
session speakers and events were equally well designed. There were one or two
rough spots, but that's to be expected when planning an event of this size and
complexity. The food and drink were never lacking, and that includes what was
supplied by the local (some not so local) clubs in the hospitality suites. We
got to see two of the most inspiring breweries for "seat-of-pants" homebrewers.
Both Sprecher and Lakefront were built with a minimum of up-front investment
and serve as shining examples of what can be done with inspiration and "sweat
equity". All in all I think Karen Barela and the AHA staff deserve our high
praise for bringing off the event so smoothly. "Thanks!" to all of you in
Meeting so many "Electronic Brewers" face to face after as much as 3 years of
keyboard contact was very exciting. The added dimensions of the personalities
of those I got to spend some time with was certainly the most intriguing aspect
of getting to know people who I thought I could anticipate. Beyond the obvious
miscalculations of age and appearance, I found peoples' sense of humor and
warmth (often difficult to see on-line) served to cement many electronically
formed friendships. My only regret is that I didn't get to spend more time with
To those of you who I didn't get to say "goodbye" to, I look forward to
continuing our discussions here and to seeing you again in Portland. Thanks for
making Milwaukee so memorable.
