2008: The Year of Beer

Beer In a few weeks, I'm heading to the American Craft Beer Festival in Boston. In July, I'll be attending the Oregon Brewers Festival in Portland (followed by a night at McMenamins Kennedy School). A friend and I just booked flights for Oktoberfest in Munich. A couple weeks after Oktoberfest, I'll be attending the Great American Beer Festival in Denver.

Homer would be proud.

What Stephen said. Love that your previous post was totally fitness orientated, and this is totally beer orientated :) Jealous on both counts!

Hey Matt, If you want to stay around for a few extra days after the Boston Beer Fest and give a talk at the Maine Java Users Group on June 25, you could enjoy Vacationland and tax deduct your trip. Besides, what goes better with beer than lobster?

How about coming to holland and give a presentation at my company, i'll by you a beer, okay?

Thanks for the offers guys - sounds fun. However, now that I'm a FTE at LinkedIn, I'd rather stay home and play with Abbie and Jack.

Beeing a single parent to three kids myself I can say; you're a wise man Matt.

Munich?!?!? will you be holding an talks in Munich? I might be able to squeeze in time for a meet and buy you some more beers... - Brian

No talks, this is a pleasure-only trip. In a perfect world, my laptop will remain in Denver.

Yes, you can use your iPhone in at the Oktoberfest in a tent at FAST 3G speeds (if you can afford the roaming charges). Check to see if there might be some free Hotspots near your Hotel. Or look on (big English Speakers community for Munich) - Brian
