My favorite was a wheat beer, of all things: Mandarin Orange Hefeweizen (Lang Creek Brewery). The brewery is located in Marion, Montana. (Any bloggers from Marion?)
I went alone, but recognized several folks. I would swear I saw Patia Stephens, except I was trying on some beer googles at the time. She had a posse, so I was unable to verify. A former student gave me a token for a free beer - can't complain about that! And, I recognized a fellow ski volunteer (which is actually an accomplishment because I had never see her except bundled up in ski gear).
There was a good honky tonk band: TenFoot Tall and 50 Proof. Made me feel like I was back in Texas.
