[The Craft Beer Festival] has not been canceled, it has been postponed until the fall. The lack of homebrewer participation is the big reason. May 3 is National homebrew day and they will be brewing.We support Brian on his quest to make this work and look forward to attending his festival in the fall. We'll be sure to keep you updated about dates as further details emerge.
There have also been some concerns from supporting parties of the legality of having a homebrew festival and being able to charge admission.
I am working very hard to make this a reality.
While we're speaking of Hot Shotz, you might like to know that they'll be tapping a firkin of Bell's Porter tomorrow (3/27/08).

At 6 a.m., Boston's beer goes the way of the 19th win - Red Sox fans were treated to an opening day without beer in bars throughout the Boston area. The reason? The game (which was played in Japan) started at 6 a.m. Massachusetts law says that beer can't be served before 8 a.m.
And back in Indiana, it's Dig-B with your Wabash beer scoop - Our buddy Chris has the full list of where you can find the latest product out of Brugge Beer's Terre Haute facility. We've got a case (or was it three cases?) of this stuff in the HBG mystery secret beer vault - look for a review sometime soon if we can ever get a beer attack strategy sorted out.
