El Bait Shop
The Lincoln Lagers Homebrew Club’s annual bus trip is quickly approaching. On Saturday, July 9th, Lager members and friends will embark on our yearly excursion. This year’s target city: Des Moines, Iowa.
There are two great brewery tours planned for Peace Tree Brewing and Court Avenue Brewing. A stop at El Bait Shop to wet our whistles with their world class tap selection, as well as a stop at Beer Krazy, Des Moines favorite bottle shop/home brew supply store.
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.
Tickets are on sale through the Lincoln Lagers website www.lincolnlagers.com using PayPal (top two link on the right hand side of the home page.). Tickets are $35 for 2011 paid members and $45 for non-members.
quick tip: You can pay for a 2011 membership on the website under the ‘Members’ menu option, and save the $10 instantly for the bus trip.
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!
