    everything i've read about this festival says no unless you are looking to drink 1-2 year rounds from each attending brewery. there'd probably be a lot more chatter about it if it was actually worth it.

    I went to the very first one, it was OK. Goose Island was pouring BCS which got cleaned out minutes after the gate opened. Pipeworks was there but not many people knew about them at the time so we just shot the shit with them and drank their delicious beers since there was no line. It was fun, but nothing exceptional.
