It was a nice event, and I plan to attend next year as well - as a volunteer. I attended the Saturday event and the weather held up enough to make it enjoyable. I really wish the folks serving the beers had a bit more knowledge about the beers but meh...
A couple of things I learned while I was there -
I still dont like Belgians - Dubbels, Trippels, Wheats Etc. They all still taste like banana flavored play-doh to me. These were the only brews I wasnt able to palette.
IPAs are still my favorite but after several different ones, your taste buds start to get blown out and some begin to taste like a mouthful of potpourri.
That "Cider" they were serving wasnt a cider - it was really a Belgian in disguise. "Its dry isnt it?" the lady asked me. If you consider banana flavored play-doh dry, then yes, it was.
And finally, the last thing I learned was AB does in fact have a valid purpose.
While they may serve ****ty rice beer to the masses, their ugly red delivery/serving trucks keep that craft beer nice and cold. It was a bit of a distraction to see a bug ol Buttwiper truck sitting in the event when I first walked up and having my beer served from it. But it all worked out after about my 6th or 7th beverage.
