Ludophilia and craft beers/homebrewing

Last year, our Founder (Tempus42) only partly joked when he said our con was half gaming, and half beer exposition. In particular, two of our gamers brought fantastic home-brewed beers that I would stack up against many commercially produced products. Not simply content to dazzle with home made...many a high quality commercially made craft beer was provided (especially by one of our two home-brew masters) Firestone Walker, Avery, Dog Fish Head and many others.

In the comments to this section, I would like to gauge interest in either formalizing this beer exposition, so to speak (award for best home brew?), keeping it informal, or even making a catalog like we have for the games, but for beverages.


The labels are in!

I went to Ludophilia 5 and all I got was this lousy t-shirt.....

Ok, hopefully not a *lousy* t-shirt.  But since I've finally gotten an artist (my son, Alex) to draft us up a logo and some art, I'm strongly considering getting some t-shirt printed for Ludophilia this year, if enough of you are interested in getting one.  I'm looking at, which can do them for around $10-15 (depending on colors and how many we order), or else I still need to check out the prices at a local place my wife has worked with.

The art will look look something like below.  Colors and font are not necessarily final yet.  But I dig the hip '50s Parker Brothers vibe of the drawing Alex came up with.

If you'd be interested in a shirt, comment here or email me to let me know.  I'm just taking a straw poll at this point.

UPDATE: An Aside from LTC John... anyone else interested (as I am) in a shirt with this on it?
