Red Crow Brewing and Crane Brewing are both founded by former homebrewers & KCBM members – Sound like some folks here in Lincoln that we know? :-)
BONUS ROUND: We are inviting all Kansas City area homebrew club members to join us at each leg of our journey, turning this into one big ole’ Homebrewer Gathering!
Tips for riding the Lincoln Lagers Bus:
- Consider bringing a reusable tasting cup, whether glass or plastic, to cut down on the number of disposable cups we use. We try to be green about our impact.
- We take this opportunity to share brews amongst our fellow home brewers. Some of these brews will be strong. Some of them will be ridiculously strong. The bus trip is a time when many of us raid our bottle cellars, pick out rare gems, whether they be oaked, smoked, bugged, soured, or just hopped beyond reason. If you are not careful, you will be drunk sooner than you expect to. Plan ahead. Bring some Tums, some crackers, whatever it is you need to stay on the level.
- Drink lots of water. Before, Throughout, After.
- Don’t forget to feed yourself. It’s easy to trick your body into thinking that beer IS food, but you need some solid stuff in you as well.
- If the bus is filled to capacity, things can get rather, um, “intimate” between us. That means elbows in personal space, occasional smells, etc.
Consider choosing foods and snacks that won’t become ticking time bombs in your gut, as you don’t want to fumigate your fellow brewers, or to be fumigated by them.
And likewise, leave the particularly-strong colognes for another day, with better ventilated spaces.
- “Pack just enough to get by, but bring everything you need.”
Simple, right? But, consider that space -WILL- be at a premium if we sell out every last one of our tickets. So if all of your bottles fit in your smaller cooler, don’t bring the 120 Qt. fishing trip monstrosity, bring the smaller one instead.
- Likewise, expect the bus to be equally well-filled on the way back, as all of our souvenirs and take-home beers will fill in the gaps left by the bottles we emptied earlier in the day.
- You’re welcome to bring a snack to share on the bus ride! Pass it on down the aisle!
- Drink responsibly, enjoy each others’ company, and have fun!
