I couldn't believe how many people were there during the afternoon session. Last year, there were very few lines, only at a handful of the most popular breweries, not at virtually every brewery like this year. I still had fun, and the long lines meant that I drank a bit less and had to be a bit more selective about the beers that I would wait for. (I'm not sure if this was a good or a bad thing.)

Default Great Time!

This was a great event! Better than last year. I was surprised at how the early session was so crowded - more than last year. I was most impressed with Pretty Things - outstanding! First time I have tried their beers as they are so new to the scene.

My friends had what seemed to be a great plan - start with the lighter beers like wheats and summers so as not to mess up the palate when we hit the more robust offerings. We foolishly thought that we could make it around 1 time on the lights then do a second lap with the heavy's - yeah right! We made it about 2/3 through and found we were running low on time so we had to pick up the pace and switch over to the heavy's ASAP!

No question I'll be buying my tickets for the 2010 show as soon as they are available!

It was a bit too crowded for me.. We got there about 1230 and the line was unbelievably long to get in..I do have to say it went fast though. When we got in the room, the lines weren't that bad. 4-5 people or less..Towards the end, every beer line was 15-20+ and slooow..I don't have any patience for that. I'm Sorry I missed you..
