We will be meeting up in Lincoln at the Indian Village parking lot on 13th & High Street.  The bus leaves at 8am sharp (so be early) and will return around 10pm.  Be sure to bring a cooler filled with your favorite home brew/commercial beers to share, a tasting glass, and tasty snacks for the road (lets go easy on the deviled eggs this year).

Are you in Omaha? We have plans to make a stop to pickup/drop off our friends to the East.  We are open to the best spot, so drop us a line on our forum if you have a suggestion.  The Omaha pickup will be at 9am and drop off around 9pm.

Seats are open to the public, and are first come first serve.  We will be traveling comfortably on an Arrow Stage Line bus equipped with a rest room and plenty of TV’s tuned to our favorite beer related movies.  This is one of the best beer events you will ever experience, and we hope to see you on the bus!

We’re gong to Jason McLaughlin’s place on Sunday, August 8, 2010. It’s also the AHA Mead Day.

We can get things started at 4 pm, and interested parties should bring their carboys and honey to make a mead. The AHA has posted a recipe and instructions for the 2010 event We will BBQ some food, and people should bring some lawn chairs as well. If any Lincoln Lagers have some finished mead, please bring some for people to try. We could get some type of mead talk, too, from those who attended the NHC last June in Minnesota.

2010 BUS TRIP is occurring on SUNDAY, AUGUST 15th.

We have a special behind the scenes tour of KC’s Boulevard Brewery. The plan is to leave at 8 am from the Indian Village Parking Lot, then arrive in KC and take the tour at noon. After that we’ll hang out at the Flying Saucer, an awesome pub with an amazing selection of brew. For the rest of the afternoon there’s plenty to see and do in KC’s Power and Light District. At about 5:30, we’ll board the bus and head on over to Lukas Liquors in Kansas City, for some time to shop and select the finest of beers from breweries we can’t get here.  We should have you home in Lincoln between 10 and 10:30 pm.

The actual printed tickets will be available at the August meeting. Until then, the official sign up list will be posted on the club forum. Reserve your seats today. Tickets will probably be $40 again this year for Lincoln Lagers members and that will include lunch and tip for the driver. (Add $5 per ticket if you’re not a LL member.) We should have several door prizes lined up too. Cast your vote for your favorite beer-themed movie for the in flight entertainment. More details will be coming.
