I am not sure yet. I will be the dude with a staff shirt on with a Phish hat and a big red beard. Shouldn't be hard to spot.

I'll keep an eye open. Just trimmed about 15 inches off my beard . Would have been real easy to spot my if I hadn't . Was just short of my waist.

Look for the old guy wearing a fermentally challenged t-shirt.

I just got my tickets for session 1 on Saturday. Now, I'm trying to figure out where I should have my pre-beerfest lunch. I'm thinking Chinatown.

Wow, just wow. This was my first beerfest, and I gotta say, I'm never missing another one again.

The Standouts: New Holland's 2007 Oak Aged Dragons Milk was like drinking joy. Pretty Things Beer and Ale Project was so damn popular that they were out of two beers by the time we got to them, but their Jack D'or and St. Butolph Town were amazing. Haverhills Belgian IPA was actually quite good, as was everything from Speakeasy Brewing. Brooklyn's Curvee was really very good, despite having 10 different spices in it (kind of like KFC?). Terrapin Brewing's Rye Squared was fantastic, as well as Stone's double dry hopped Arrogant Bastard.

What did you guys think? I went out and bought bombers of everything Pretty Things makes as well as Haverhill and Great Divide's 15th anniversary Oak Aged IIPA.

The crazy Ivan from bear republic was great and the beer for Surly was good too. Working line maintenance at the second session was intense. I think the total number of people ending up being around 4 thousand.

So many choices . I tried to stick mainly with barley wines , porters and imperial stouts. There were so many I had to switch up and drink something easy after every 4-5 big beers.Also Had some great IIPA's and they were delicious.
Took all kinds of notes the first 20 minutes ,but gave up after a bit.
Great crowd ,lines weren't bad ,and all in all a great time.
