I can't do it- I wish I could. Since I'm retiring next year, I'll definitely be able to go then.

Have a great time!

Damn! I used to live in Saginaw, I really wish I could go. Do they have it Frankenmuth every year?

AFAIK yes.

I'm not going this year. Looks interesting, but I've got a few beer fests and things happening, and there is just way too much beer there for me to be able to drink everything I will want to.

As far as beer fests go, this one isn't all that bad. Bit pricy on the samples but what's free these days?

It's the standard selection of good beer and some really crummy ones. I used to go frequently but haven't been in a few years.

I am as yet undecided.

Check the Michigan Mashers Group for more declarations of intent.

As for cost $5 admission, (4) 4oz. samples for $5; 4-5 bucks a pint is pretty standard anywhere.

Not attending this year, but I went there twice, when i lived in Michigan. It is a pretty cool event, and worth checking out if you live within a couple hours of frankenmuth.

One of the moments that led me to homebrewing was seeing a group of guys doing an all grain batch of Oktoberfest on premis, and answering everyone's questions there.

I would be going if I wasn't judging UpCup in Bloomington. I won a gold and silver at the contest they had last weekend so I would be able to get in for free. I am originally from Bay City and have a bunch of family there, so I told the organizers I would judge next year...sounds like a blast. Bad timing since I am already signed up for the Bloomington comp.
