NHC in San Diego!

Unread postby Nesto » Sun Feb 01, 2015 12:45 am

Let's see how many forum members are considering attending the National Homebrewers Conference this year. June 10-13 in San Diego, CA. I am definitely attending. Anyone else?

Registration starts Feb 18, see details here.

Not this time, but attended last time it was in San Diego. There was a really good beer pub up the hill (at Normal Heights) called blind lady. Looks like it is still there. http://blindlady.blogspot.com.au/

If you're staying at the town & country, steer clear of the hotel food. Town & Country is right next to a shopping mall, which also had lousy food. Best food by far was from the food trucks which took up residence on the street out the back of the hotel. I remember one day when security guards from the shopping mall tried to chase off the food trucks. (They must have been taking business from the awful food-franchise places). The food-truck queues were full of hungry conference attendees, and no-one wanted to see the trucks driven off. I remember outraged loud Americans shouting down the security guards. It was along the lines of '"Listen pretend-cop - this is a public street. You want to clear these trucks - you go get the black & whites".

NHC moves every year: http://www.ahaconference.org/conference ... nferences/

Haven't read where 2016 will be yet, but my guess is not the west coast. Maybe time for a southern city again?

Thanks drHilarious for the pub suggestion! Was also there at the 2011 event. I remember good food being difficult to find - those food trucks were our salvation!

I'm in the airport waiting to jet down to San Diego for the Brewing Network/White Labs party tonight! Just read today that next year's location will be Baltimore, MD.

I had to join AHA to even have a shot at getting tickets. The tickets usually sell out in less than an hour, but Saturday is reserved for AHA members.

Have fun and take pictures. :beer:

I think I'd like to do it sometime.. I don't do those kinds of crowds well unless I'm behind the tap pouring. I will be going the the AHA gathering at Jamil's Heretic Brewing later in the year.. Looking forward to that. It's a crowd but not like San Diego. Plus, I'll get 5 gallons of wort there along with the yeast.
