GABF brewers' diaries
Germantown, Wis. - Sept. 4
GABF dropoff points are distributors that have graciously agreed to
house kegs that will end up on the festival floor. I'm sure it takes up

said, Flossmoor to be one of the most distant from the drop
off point. We're 25 miles south of Chicago and our drop off point at
Better Brands in Germantown is easily 15 miles northwest of Milwaukee.
It's a good two and a half hours each way.
So over the years it has
become more of a ritual than a hassle. It's got to be done, so why not
make the most of it? Stopping along the way to enjoy cheese and sausage, and
admiring the many Harley Davidson's out these days on the 100th
anniversary of that motorcycle.
We get up to Better
Brands and we see our contact. He's happy to see us and wishes us good
luck. We tell him thanks not only for us but for all breweries
dropping beer off there. I'll miss driving up from Flossmoor to
Germantown, but that's another story.
