Harrisburg Brewers Fest 6/21, who's goin'?
 
http://www.troegs.com/brewfest/

I'll be at the 1st session. Went last year, great line-up. Amazing how 4oz samples add up...:drunk:

Me + 4 are going to the late session.

Been there every year since it started!!!

I'll be at the first session too. This will be my first time there. What's the scene like, and does it get super crowded?

Me + a lot of buddies for the 2nd session. I've been to all of them.

It used to be more crowded when they only had one session. It's better now that they split it up. I have never been to the 1st session.

It's my favorite fest, and not just because of the home ice advantage. It's very similar to Kennett Square's fest. Every year it's been sunny and 70 degrees... hoping the heat breaks and this year's the same. I love drinking outside between the tall buildings!

Last year was my first time and it wasn't overly crowded. Pretty easy to get a beer. No long lines at the Port-A-Potty. :cross:

It's not as bad as it was a few years ago, but it's still crowded (imho). at least the lines to the whizzer are shorter.

Wasn't it last year or like 2 years ago that it was hot as all get out? I don't remember it being a nice cool 70 that's for sure.

I think last year was the hottest... 80 maybe. Who knows, I was drinking. The year before that was pretty hot for my friends as we decided to try Troeg's Naked Elf at McGrath's before the brewfest... Sort of a mistake right there :drunk:

I'm convincing the brother in law to come with. If not, got room for a tag along, Firebrewer?

RoaringBrewer 06-11-2008 07:16 PM

I may be there, may not... I also have the 'home ice' advantage for this one, but I am leaving for Dallas on business early Sunday, so I should use Saturday to pack and just relax with friends/family before heading away for 7 days or so...

If I can convince some of those 'friends and family' to hit the fest, I am there though...

The other thing I will consider is the weather... I will be less likely to go if its 95F and humid. I don't need to be crowded in with people, drinking strong beers, in that temp...

Tickets for the 2nd session are going fast... Should be sold out this week.

Anyone who is thinking about it should act quickly...
