I just bought my ticekts for session 1 on sat. I was hoping that session 1 would be the least popular one but I'm not sure if my theory will hold true.

Haha yeah my girlfriend is coming with me and I am hoping we can find her a beer type that she likes. She came with me to the American Craft Beerfest a couple months ago and found a couple. The only problem is that we can't remember which ones those were!! :drunk:

Does anyone know of any good places to eat near by?

The beer and food are in the same place inside the venue. IIRC the food vendors are on the right side of the building if the building entrance is directly behind you.

Oh man I am so excited for this beer fest. I have to try and take some more notes this time becuase at the ACBF I kind of just went crazy and don't really remember what I really like and what I didn't. :drunk:

I volunteered at the fest for two days, and I tried almost every single beer they offered up at the place... And I got to bring home a few of the left over bottles... Amazingly good time.
