Next Wednesday, March 28th, the American Homebrewer's Alliance, together
with the North Texas Home Brewers Association will present the

This occurs at the Harvey House Hotel, in Plano, TX (suburb of Dallas).

No, you can't get in cheaply by plying us with beer, which is
not to say that you shouldn't try.

P.S. Other news - I said earlier that Reinheitsgebot Brewery (the
only microbrewery in the Dallas area) had gone out of business.
It turns out they are still in business, at least for awhile. They
sold (green) beer at the North Texas Irish Festival. They are having
a tour of their brewery as part of the conference, and will be
supplying significant amounts of beer to the conference.
