Informal Roadtrip / Meetup

7 posts in this topic

Realizing that summer has just begun, this may be blasphemous to mention so early, but would anyone be interested in a fall roadtrip to Neustadt, Ontario? There is a great craft brewery there called Neustadt Springs Brewery; beers sold in the LCBO are 10w30 Brown Ale, Scottish Pale Ale, and Neustadt Lager, so the beer geeks out there may be familiar with the brand. Anyway, the brewery owners are also smart owners (see their car online at Neustadt Springs Brewery) and I know that they would warmly receive a large contingent of fortwos for an afternoon meet-up.

Late September or early October would be ideal from anywhere in Ontario, as the fall colours should be out in full effect. I'm thinking a Sunday drive would be best. Anyway, just throwing this out there now, if interested please leave a comment below. I know the owners, so if we can get enough cars out, I think they will be able to put on a good show for us.

Thx!

Summer took a long time to get here, but as we all know, it flies by to quickly and we're into the fall, so making plans for a road trip / meetup at this time isn't 'blasphemous' ..... just good common sense in planning an event.I'm up for it, regardless of the date.

Thanks Leadwing! I drove up late last September - it's roughly 2.5 hours NW of Toronto. Great drive, nice scenery, little traffic. Brewery owners are nice British folk that love their car and would love to have us out.

It will probably be a Sunday. I've sent an email to the brewery to investigate dates and see if they can cater. Typically, they charge $7 for the tour, but perhaps they can do a $20-all in lunch. Will let you all know how it shakes out.

Spoke with the brewery owner this morning and he proposed Sunday, September 14th. They can cater in lunch, so I'd recommend planning your respective trips to arrive for noon. Ballpark cost for lunch, a tour and sampling would be $20 a head.I would like to give Neustadt Springs an idea of attendance numbers so that they can plan accordingly. Apparently, their tasting room is licensed for up to 32 people. I'll promote this to those attending the Mystery Run in August, but please spread the word and reply to the thread if you have any questions or plan to attend.
