Went last year. It was great. It is right on the lake front and there were a ton of micros there.
Might enter in the Schooner Home Brew Championship.

So, anyone going?

My fiance, father, sister and I are going!

I wish the whole festival were longer than 4-hours though.

My fiance and I are road tripping up for the day from Chicago. Doing the fest and then just staying at a hotel or the night. Yeah, wish it was a longer session than 4 hours. But for $25, I bet I'll get my money's worth.

I unfortunately can't make the beer fest tomorrow, but I did enter a couple beers into the homebrew competition. First time I've ever entered a contest, I'm expecting the worst and hoping for the best.

Anyone else enter?

Anyone enter previous years?
