    Overall I think that By the Bottle and co. did a great job with the fest. The space was just about right for Vancouver. There was a tent in case it rained, food, music, etc. Pretty good vibe overall for a first fest.

    I wasn't super stoked on the 4 oz plastic tasters because there was no way to get a full beer even if I wanted one like most other fests. The beer selection was average but there were a few decent ones from Elysian, Iron Horse and the "New" Salmon Creek Brewpub that were worth having. The red from Mt. Tabor was actually one of their better beers too and I haven't been a huge fan in the past.

    Nice to see the Vancouver scene evolving!

    Very cool. I'm looking forward to the Vancouver Brewfest in August.

    Definitely! I hope it's a big bigger in scale.
