How was your experience?
Fun time. Not a fest with tons of great beers if you are a craft beer fan, but there were enough good breweries represented to make it worthwhile, and offset the LandShark and Shock Top and their marketing blitzes. Good people watching and the free mechanical bull rides were a highlight... it was fun to try and also fun to watch drunk people getting thrown off the wierd animatronic bull. Lines for beer were quite reasonable... much better than they could have been.
