    Curious to know if anyone else attended. I was there on Friday night and thoroughly enjoyed their selection of guest beers. A few I've never tried before and was impressed with Brooklyn Blast, Hop Flood, and Old Embalmer.

    They had three of their own beers there - a malty IPA (forget the name, it was pretty good), a Honey Wheat (top notch honey from a local beekeeper and hand harvested grain), and a 17-grain oatmeal stout aged in Wild Turkey 10yo barrels called Black Balled Stout. I thought the BB Stout was the best out of their three and stacked up nicely against most other wood or bourbon aged stouts on the market. Really liked the selection of the 10 year WT barrel, as I thought it gave a more refined bourbon flavor on the back-end.

    Seems like these craft beer festivals are popping up everywhere, but I liked the fact that this one was put on by a startup brewery.
