Headed over to Barrier Brewing on Long Island to meet Evan and have a look around his operation. Seriously impressive set up, and amazing beer (we knew that already, though it didn't stop me from sampling some more!). Spent some time talking about the next Iron Heart beer collab stuff. More details to come, but hoping we can get something sorted out for our USA market.

For anyone in the LI area, the tap room is great. Good people, great food truck and cool music. Go check it out.

Damn @Matty123 those pizza's look excellent. My stomach has been grumbling since I saw them. Just how I like the crust also.

Will be in Brooklyn on Saturday. Can’t wait to meet up with all of you! Some last minute plans, but I’m so happy to pull it off. Have fun in Philly tonight!

I had a great time today. Definitely worth the ten hours of driving.

I went and got an authentic Philly cheese steak sandwich from Joe's. It was amazing!!

I got to check out some of the FW21 stuff.

The purple UHF is out of sight 👌 you really must see it in person because photos don't do it justice.

Meeting all 9 feet of Alex was pretty surreal. I got a few insider deets able stuff on the pipeline and I am so stoked for next year.  🤓 Also pictured is Ed @steelworker it was awesome to meet them.

Some pics of me were taken and I guess they will show up eventually. Thanks a lot to everyone for such a nice time.!! I need to go to stuff like this more often because I met a lot of nice people. Also, my mom had been asking me to get her a non-hooded sweatshirt for a long time now so it was cool to be able to get her a really nice one. And I got myself a pair of socks.

Even if I have to hijack a plane and fly there myself I am going to be at the party next year.

I've been playing Microsoft Flight Sim so I know how to be a pilot. (To the federal authorities I am kidding and being overly sarcastic to express the depths of my desire to go to the party next year)..  :D

Right on; I’ll also try my best to make it to next year’s party.
The journey is the objective.

@Filthy @steelworker great to meet you both. Andrew hosted a great event and we had a really good turnout. I think 30 or 40 people rolled through at various times. Thanks for making the journey to visit with us, I had a great time.
