I'm thinking of making the trip. Not sure if I'm going to stay the night, may talk the wife into driving us back to the valley late night. It woul dbe my first time to this fest up in Flag. Is it worth the trip?
It's not Made in the Shade or Sun Sounds except they are the ones who pushed for the insurance coverage for each tapping area (I believe it's $1200 a year). The AZ liquor laws prevent clubs from participating in these types of events now. They started hassling us in '07 because our beer wasn't made in an FDA approved facility and it wasn't distributed by a licensed distributor. The ASH folks are working on starting a movement with the AZ brewers guild to push for a change in legislation.
