This was the second year I have attended and actually preferred last year even with the rain. This year the beer selection seemed worse and some booths/selections ran out well before the end the event. The crowds were also a lot worse with a...continued

Definitely worth the price and some. It rained this year but it was still immensely enjoyable. You can't go wrong with all-you-can-drink.

This event was a great way to try a variety of beers, ciders and other assorted beverages. If you're a beer guru, this event is for you! (Just beware of the effects of mixing multiple beers together.) There wasn't much for entertainment other than...continued

Excellent representation of local craft brewers. One complaint was that the signs for each brewer was not easily visible since the tent awnings blocked their view until you were a few feet away (an issue since the end of each line for a sample was...continued

Likes: local and national brewers and microbrewers
Dislikes: fewer vendors than last year; too many (customers) in attendance; tasting lines were excessively long; too many pale ales and not enough other variety

A surface lot two blocks south of the tents charged $5 for parking, another great deal. Eat before going as the food options were minimal with long lines. Overall though, a great experience. Would definitely go again.

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...continued

I liked it. However, there weren't as many good beers as last year.

Last year's event had many more of the local breweries represented. This year, most of those appeared to be absent. Among the absences my buddy and I noticed: Surley, Flat Earth, Lift Bridge.

The smaller venue this year compressed the crowd as...continued

Unfortunately, the cool weather put a damper on the event as a whole. The venue this year was not as nice as past years. The area seemed much smaller and it was difficult to tell which lines were for which breweries until you got up near the...continued

Great event to discover new beers. There was not enough portable bathrooms for the amount of people and beer. Hopefully, next year the lines will be shorter or non existent for the bathroom.

It was a sneaky/delicious way for the big beer companies to showcase their summer releases. Too few craft and/or artisan brews. However it was fun, and i would buy another discount ticket for the event next summer.
Music was GREAT!

It was an Ok event. The location was smaller then in previous years and it was crowded with young frat boys and dingy girls. The beer was ok, not exceptional. There were a few new outstanding beers, like Millbrook Brewing, but again just a few....continued

As with any GA event, getting there early really is key. Once in, the evening was smooth sailing! Great beers, fun entertainment (Hammerschlagen! Accordion players!), and new friends experiencing hundreds of beers and ciders with you. Food...continued
