The venue was nice because it was really open, but at the same time that kind of sucked because there were only like 5 tables haha.
The live entertainment wasn't so great (in my opinion), and the fact that it was only one band was kind of a let down, but it wasn't a huge deal.
If I had to rate it I'd give it a 7.5 out of 10, maybe an 8. I was hoping there would be more of a "beer garden" type area where you could just sit down and hang out, but since there wasn't we spent the entire night standing. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't a major problem, it just would have been nice to sit down for a bit. Again, this was my first beer fest so that might just be par for the course.
