    That's the beautiful thing about the Moat-- you can stay overnight there! How many brew pubs can you say that about? (I assume that reservations are required-- you can't just crawl upstairs and find a bed...)

    I must add that Kirsten and Nik at Tuckerman Brewing have been tremendous fans and supporters. Who knows, they may be open to the STP idea. Having us on the 6288 label and offering us a potion of the proceeds was entirely their idea.

    I'm bummed that 6288 Stout was not available for STP this year. I haven't heard exactly why, but I do know that it disappeared from Hannaford a couple of weeks ago. It was a small first batch-- maybe it's all gone until this fall?

    Rumor has it that the winter edition of Windswept will have a story about them and a recipe that includes 6288. Besides drinking my share, I've made a couple of really good beef stews with it...

    If we do get an STP beer brewed for the event I would suggest not using an orange label...I think it would clash with the brown bottle.

    Beef stew with 6288. Mmmmmmm. Maybe that should be on the menu with the dinner next year - or better yet, a bowl for lunch at the OBS would be a great way to prepare for the hike down.

    Steve...dull orange and brown are earthtones. They would look good together.

    OK...It's not the outside that matters anyway, it's what's on the inside counts!

    I so agree. GGG and I had the opportunity to try a few of their beers. OK we had the sampler of everyone that they made and I too had to bring a Growler home. We could change STP from Seek the Peak to Sip the Pint!

    Sip the pint on the way to the top and the one who actually makes it to the top is the winner!

    Talking Staying at the Moat

    How 'bout next year we stay and sample at the Moat, meanwhile we strap a bandana-cam on ,Blue Dog,Rockin' Rex or some other mountain goat willing to volunteer for this duty. Then we can get a live satellite feed back to the bar where we can give him all the support we can muster! Or her, ladies welcome of course.

    I agree. This would make it very easy for me to get away from carrying beer to the top next year. I will make the statement now that next year GGG will be the carrier of the beer! Also with that said. Sorry Rockin Rex if I knew you would meet us at the summit I would have packed another one for you. See you at the summit next year. Kevin (meridenff)

    GGG, I was beginning to wonder if you were lost on the mountain or some thing.. I mean 17 posts go by talking about beer and you were nowhere to be seen!
