Default My first beer festival!

In just a couple of hours I'll be heading off to the Michigan Summer Beer Festival in Ypsilanti, Michigan. This will be the first beer festival I've attended and don't really know what to expect. I've checked out the beer list and have kind of sort of picked a few of the beers I'd like to try.

Do people bring homebrew/craft brew and hang out before/afterwards? What's the deal?

There's supposed to be some rain on the way but the beer will flow regardless and I'm geeked. I hope to take lots of pictures and possibly keep my facebook/twitter updated throughout the day.

Anyone else going?


Curt

It's a screenshot from Over The Top. It succeeds where most avatars fail.
