Get the VIP. Unlimited beer and food and an abundance of places to sit.

Terrible. Very unorganized and not a lot of directoion of where to go to get your food, etc. Once we got there there was NO FOOD LEFT! Yep, only beer. Am not happy and thinking twice about using goldstar again for this type of even.

The event ended at 7 pm, so why did they run out of beer by 4pm??? Whatever brew was left over was hot , and they refused to fill up the beer Stein! We had to pay for a small cup and pour it in the stein. What a waste!

It was all outdoors with little shade. There was a good turnout, but the lines got longer as the event went on. If you go next year, I recommend to go early as they ran out of some beers by 3:30 pm.

Plastic mug was disappointing for VIP $. If you are going just to drink beer great deal otherwise not great view of race and mug should be stein.

Had the all-you-can-eat-and-drink bratwurst and beer VIP tickets. Went with Edna, Mr. Penny, J, and Mizuho. Beautiful weather, sunny, 75 degrees.
