NHC 2015 was a blast. Great content, great people, and great beer!

My club, the Horse Thief Brewers Association, poured during social club on Friday. All of our beers seemed to be well received. The beer judging application I built (judge.beer) was on display via a monitor and Raspberry Pi and attendees were asked to rank our beers. Sadly, participation wasn't great, but a couple of people did sign up after I explained how we use the app to streamline our club meetings.

The expo hall was packed with a bunch of vendors and breweries. If your glass was empty at any point, you only needed to turn to the nearest booth to get it refilled.

The keynote by Tomme Arthur of Port Brewing/The Lost Abbey was awesome. It captured the spirit of homebrewing and was met with a standing ovation.

All of the sessions I attended were excellent. I learned a lot about acid beers, sour mashing/worting, adding coffee to beer, organizing clubs, malt, and several other topics.

All I can say is that if you have the opportunity to attend next year's NHC in Baltimore, take it!
