What started as a small surprise 80th birthday party for world-renowned beer writer Fred Eckhardt is coming back around in its fourth year as one of the most anticipated beer events of the year. As always, 100% of the proceeds from FredFest and the related auctions will go to a charity of Fred's choice. This year, Fred has named the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of America as the 2009 recipient of the fest.
Like last year I help out by running the auction for the event. We have a great lineup this year. The bids will start as soon as Lars gets them up on the site. They will close starting on Wed. at 5:00pm Pacific and stagger after that.
This email includes the bulk of the lots that are going up this year. We should have a few more on Sunday so be looking for them.
Last year we did have some problems with bids being posted after the closing time. If that happens this year they will be deleted and the winner of the auction will be the last bid that comes in before or on the closing time.
