I agree on layout. The 600 tent was way out of place and bells and goose island blocking way between tents. Anyone try bells mad scientist ale? Was that hot or what

I didn't attempt to dance. I was happy I could walk.

Oh, and m_stodd, I just found out that it wasn't you I was texting. That's probably why you didn't call me back. It was a random person, and I texted things like "I'm in front of real ale", "Meet me at booth 111?" etc. Yesterday, I got a text saying, "Who the hell are YOU?" and it wasn't from m_stodd.

I was there and agree the layout could have been better. It's problematic though with so many breweries and people to fit it all in.

I lost track of what I sampled and eventually lost my lunch unfortunately. First time I've ever gotten sick from drinking and I've been at it for 15 years.

Oh well, can't wait till next year though!

The "hidden" tent was a quality tent. It was kind of nice because people didn't find it right away.

We went straight to Tent 5. And kept coming back for special releases again and again. Probably could have spent all day at Tent 5.

The nice weather made it a real drunk day. I didn't think I had that much until I got back to the hotel room.
