Easily the best selection downtown. I used to beer lunch there two or three times a week when I worked at Front & Pine.

While in the process of buying tickets, about to press the submit button, I got called into work that day...bastards. Well, its more money to spend on grains and hops later. Let us know how it goes.

As usual it was a good fest. My only thing having done it 5 times now is that it doesn't change. Same crew there every year, and really nothing new in the way of beers. Not that they're bad beers, but they're the same beers. Not really a new interesting experience when you have the same Penn Pilsener every year.

I'm thinking of not going next year.

I had to crack up when before the first session one of the 2nd st bars had a girl walk down the line talking about their great drink specials on miller lite and bud lime...

Correct me if I am wrong, but if your Rouge, wouldn't you have made sure that your flagship beer is at the festival (Dead Guy no show) and if your dogfish show that your not just a 2 trick (50 and 90 min IPA) pony? Although I guess you don't mess with success.

I would've liked to have seen more than just Pilsners and wheats, but it is June and 85-90° out. Good time overall, wasn't too crowded, easy to get a beer---but why do some people feel the need to stand directly in front of where they got their beer and drink after they get it? GTFO the way!

When I was at Dogfish Head during the 2nd session, they poured Raison d'Etre and 60 Minute.

I'm a 5 for 5 vet myself and yeah, not much change. But it's about the only one I go to anymore, and it's local, so I see myself keeping it up.
