I'm not looking for any crazy Johnny Manziel-like pics, but could pictures be taken?  Then posted on facebook or something?

Peter, I look forward to meeting you in person.

Me, too.  And I won't be hanging out in the LCMS exhibitor area after all.  I've been tasked with serving as a stage manager.  That means Pres. Benke will incur the wrath of Buckeye Deaconess if he doesn't check in with me 30 minutes before he is scheduled to speak on behalf of his floor committee.   ;D :D

I'll do my best to honor that request.  :)

For those of us who are not on Facebook, can the pics be posted somewhere we can all view them?  TIA...

We will be offering beer and wine (while limited supplies last-- I think we have 30 or so bottles of beer and a few bottles of wine) and some paleo-friendly nuts, so feel free to bring anything to share. The room is a very sharp executive hospitality suite overlooking the old Capitol. Again, Hilton at the Ballpark, west tower, room 2224, 7-11 p.m. As sure as this website is working Walther and Krauth will be there arguing and signing autographs. Bring your friends.

Watching the stream live, I'm now going through HUGE withdrawal after having been at the past two shindigs in Houston.  :-\

Although the paucity of Shiner Bock certainly helps ease the pain, eh Prof. Yakimow?  ;)

I'm SO sorry we got called away and couldn't make it tonight.   :'(

It has been fun meeting some of you participants and lurkers.  I hope to meet even more throughout the week.

Oh sweet Lord, they aren't making people drink that, are they?  I forgot the poor selection of beer in St. Louie -- Michigan at least has good beers like Bells or Dark Horse...  Can't you guys scare up some Schlafly at least?

Hope someone can get pics and post them...

I assume that all of you are meeting, even as I write, in room 2224 at the St. Louis Hilton at the Ballpark; and I wish I could be there (if indeed you would allow non-LCMS interlopers in the room).  I've met a few of you -- Weedon, Yakimow, Speckhard, one or two others -- and would greatly enjoy meeting the rest of you rigid, fundamentalist, Walther-wielding LCMS neanderthals.  We did pray for "the LCMS in convention" this morning during our liturgy here in Texas, where God hears prayers first.  St. Louis was home to me and my family for more than a dozen years, and it still feels like a homecoming whenever I return there.  Blessings on all your work and camaraderie.

Good to hear.  But I was speaking of #5 and #29, though I probably should throw in Founders at #3 (and I've never heard of Kuhnhenn [#11], B. Nektar [#31] or Jolly Pumpkin [#64], but next time I'm in MI I'll give them a whirl)...

Kuhnhenn is a very small operation that doesn't get distributed much further than a handful of shops within a few miles of their brewery (western suburbs of Detroit).  They are best known for their Bourbon Barrel Fourth Dementia (BB4D), which is an old ale.  It's very good, but a little heavy on the toffee notes for me.  I would definitely recommend making a trip to the brewery if you're in the area.

B. Nektar, as the name implies, does meads rather than beer.  I've tried their cyser, which was good, but I'm not a big mead guy.

Jolly Pumpkin is a larger brewery, relatively speaking, with greater distribution throughout the midwest.  We see plenty of their stuff here in Chicago.  They focus on sours, particularly open fermentation and wild yeast strains.  From their regular line up, I like Oro de la Calabaza the best (Belgian strong golden ale) followed by La Roja (Flanders Red).

To the St. Louis scene, I would also add Perennial, which is putting out some very good stuff, too.  I had a bottle of their Abraxas (chocolate chile beer) this fall that was very good.  I've heard good things about 4 Hands and Urban Chestnut, but haven't tried any of their beers yet.

Even though I do happen to like Shiner Bock, I wish I could have been there to meet you all and drink a few brews.

I certainly hope you had a great time and that some stories of the meet-up are forthcoming.
