    For those who have been to multiple ACBF sessions, do you have a preference of which session is the best? When I attend festivals, I usually try to get tickets for the Saturday night sessions. Sometimes it seems the brewers run out of their top brews by this session though. Has anyone experienced this with the ABCF?

    I can think of a couple of at least one ACBF where there's been something rare that's run out on the first session. While the brewers are encouraged to ration beers to last over all sessions, not all of them do so.

    I agree. First sessions are best in my opinion- the brewers are fresh and haven't answered the same questions 100 times, the beer is generally all there. Not like you're really going to miss that much by coming to a later session, but if you had free reign to pick I'd think first is the best.

    I always prefer the first Saturday one. No rush to get there after work and you've spent a nice spring/summer afternoon day drinking in style.
