SOunds awesum. Went to a beerfest in GR last winter and it was a fantastic time. Needed more pottys though. Plus, I got a bit schnockered and had to wait a while before driving to the HBS. Some really good beers, and a very nasty Lambic. (Raspberry vomit).

If any of you had debated on going to this and didn't, I would have to say you missed out on a really good time. There were many great beers to be sampled and they had it set up pretty well. I would have to say one of the best beers I sampled that I had never tasted before was Stone's Arrogant Bastard- it was very tasty. Our group headed to Milwaukee after the brew fest and checked out Hofbrau which was also a really good time. After a few shotski's and 1L beers we headed to the Safehouse and also checked out an awesome piano bar (Lucille's) that I would also recommend.
