    So sad I can't go this year. It was definitely the most fun I had last year and it's something I hope keeps continuing forever and ever :)

    My beer-loving friends are quite interested. I'm curious if you know whether any of the breweries have non-beer brews as well? Like cider or rootbeer or something else?

    Not *that* kind of princess.

    Most breweries have something non-alcoholic on hand. Ciders, not so much.

    Each of the Kitsap breweries carry at least one house-made soda.

    Just grabbed 2 Cycle saloon / t-shirt combo tickets. Did anyone do this then follow it up with the triwizard drinking tournament last year?

    Can't wait for the tour!

    We did the tour on Monday last year- this is the first Thursday tour ever!

    Ah I see...I think that the trick will be to drink just enough beer to fall asleep after the tour then wake up refreshed later in the evening.

    Sweet. Gonna sign me and 2 friends up for the cycle saloon. Will we have the permit to BYOB while riding?

    Actually, scratch that previous reply. YES, you can bring beer in cans, or box wine.

    Pretty psyched to attend this year - first PAX Prime ever, also, my husband designed the shirt. I do fear the hangover that will come from an afternoon of drinking beer followed by an evening of drinking booze. But I am not one to shy away from the challenge.

    Well, just brought the basic ballard tour ticket. look forward to seeing all you guys in just 4 weeks.
    Oh, and re the team names- really, Fuggles? Suppose it could've been worse.. could have been Goldings!

    The american version of fuggles is willamette which no one would be able to properly say though.

    I signed up for the cycle saloon too! Can't wait, my husband is going to be so jealous but he's going to Pax Dev, so I need something to do! haha

  • JobiwanKenobiJobiwanKenobi Registered User regular
    I also signed up for the cycle saloon.

    Initially I was thinking about doing the walking tour, but how often do you get the chance to cruise between breweries on a 16 seat bike full of PAXers? Cycle saloon FTW!

    Cycle Saloon Update: They actually have 2 bikes, so if there's enough interest, we could get the second bike and add another 16 seats.

    Okay you guys, the Kitsap tickets are live! I've heard back from all of the breweries and we're on. As per usual, if the actual cost is less than the ticket cost, you'll be given the choice of a refund for the difference or donating to Child's Play.

    I'm working out the lunch option for the Kitsap tour this week, and there's a good chance it will be a PIG ROAST at the Slippery Pig.

    Ideally we'd do a combination pig roast/salmon bake with a small qty of vegan entree available too. I'll keep everyone posted.

    Lunch option for the Ballard tour will be food trucks or restaurant delivery. There's a ton of options, but y'all will be on your own to feed yourselves in Ballard.

    Not to be overly picky, but it looks like the plan is a pig ROAST not pulled pork... so I guess that you'll need to pull your own pork. If you're into that sort of thing. (wink-wink, nudge-nudge, say no more)

    Gah, while my fiance and her friend should still be attending I think my plans have changed due to omegathonage. Maybe she can sneak some pig back for me :-)

    Weren't you signed up for Ballard on Thursday? You might be able to still work the tour in. And sadly, the pig roast is on the Kitsap tour only. :(

    Nope we are planning kitsap, haven't bought yet though. Ill pm you later about it

    I think they culled the Omegathon list from the SchlitzKrieg thread. Rhiley's a 'naut too.

    Possibly! I have a missed call on my phone from an unknown number almost 2 hours ago :(

    I'm torn on what to do...

    I'm in Oakland until the Monday before PAX. I then start a leisurely multiple day drive up the coast. Multiple days, so I can safely sample some micro brews on my way to Portland. Wednesday night in Portland for food and more beer. Thursday was to be a short 3 hour trip from Portland to Seattle. To make the 9:30am meet up I would need to leave Portland around 6am. That is a horrible hour to be driving. What if I met up with the tour mid stream?

    Also, does anyone have any recommendations for microbreweries that are not to be missed between Oakland and Seattle?

    You could meet the Thursday tour mid-stream. Send me a PM with your expected arrival time and we'll work something out.

    Just to confirm we have the permit for this right? The cycle saloon website says we can bring cans and boxes "if the group obtains a banquet permit from the Washington Liquor Control board."

    I just bought 5 tickets for this for my group yesterday so I hope so! :)

    Yup! Just keep in mind that there will be loads of beer already, and you may not want to drink more...

    I am...cycling. I am not a coordinated walker. Sober.

    This ought to be entertaining.

  • LexiconGrrlLexiconGrrl Registered User regular
    So question for everybody - interest in the Kitsap tour isn't as high as initially Indictated.

    For the folks who were voting for Kitsap earlier - please weigh in on whether you're planning on signing up or not.

    That let's me plan the tour correctly before we outlay a bunch of money and plans for the wrong number of people.

    Well, in answer to your question Lexi, I've just signed up for the Kitsap tour.
    As well, figure a mid PAX break would be a good thing really, (plus, well Sound Brewing!)
