Yeah I know I missed it... a couple guys from my HBC go every year. I was just saying in general I've thought about going up.

I've been to beer fests so I agree with the strategies.. I had just heard that the event has a bit of a reputation for being absolutely packed. One of the guys in my HBC knows several of the brewers up there really well and gets a lot of behind-the-table opportunities to sit and talk with the brewers. He's been going up there since the thing started. He was saying last year was terrible because they sold about twice as many tickets as the place could realistically hold.

I was just curious of that was the case again this year or if it was managed better... and if it was, maybe I'll head up next year.

I feel like this year was better in terms of number of people, there were more breweries, food and vendors. Though, the promise of rain may have kept a few people away but it still seemed full without feeling like sardines. Part of that may be going to the afternoon session, but I think I like that better because a) it was warmer, and b) you can walk up to Church St and get a normal dinner, not just late night fare.

They also did a DD promotion this year, which I don't remember from prior years.
