  1. Just a FYI, if you can't make the AHA Conference in Oakland it will be broadcast over at The Brewing Network. Http://www.thebrewingnetwork.com. Plus I believe they will have other broadcast with different brewers, clubs and other notables. Last year I listened in on their broadcast for the award ceremony.
