Stopped in for their Hopfest and hadn't been in quite a while. Previous experiences hadn't been terribly impressive but I found a good time that night.

Service as of 5pm was good if a little brisk. Our waitress gave us far too long before taking a beer order and then refused to bring three of us more than 3 schooners at a time--how were we supposed to try the 25+ new beers? She said something about how strong the beers were; meh. Eventually she relented and surprised us with another round. Kudos to her.

Food was prompt and very tasty. Halibut was cooked and breaded excellently and the cajun turkey was a spicy revelation, the perfect match for a nice bunch of hops.

We ended up shifting to a table outside where the waitress was very courteous and attentive, serving us schooner after schooner until well after 1. Nobody seemed to mind us ripping hops off their decorative bines to add to some of the less exciting beers and everyone accomodated the spirit of the fest.

Prices were reasonable and our tab was not outlandish for finishing a taste of every new beer. Generally, however, I have found them moderate to high.

In short, Hopfest was a great time. Easily the best experience I've had at Brouwer's. Prior experiences have found the majority of people working a branch of the meat-market centered on a few blocks in Fremont along with less than knowledgable and far from friendly service. Scores reflect this.

I'll definitely pop in now and again to find new beers and I'll definitely hit Hopfest next year. But that's about it. Give me Beveridge any day.
