    If I was going to judge solely off of the beer that will be there, I'd say no.

    It's a Main Stream Macro fest. I used to go in the late Nineties and early 2000s and it was actually pretty fun at the time, but there are much better festivals around now.

    I will be there. I have been trying to get some of my non-craft drinking friends to come out to an event and I feel like this could be a non-threatening way to get them to try some new stuff.

    Bud Light Platinum! Smirnoff Signature Screwdriver ! I'm in!

    Any BAs want to do a tasting in line while we wait to get in? I've got a couple of bombers of Bud Ice to share. I'll also bring some 2011 Miller Chill, the non-waxed dip version...

    Hate if you want.

    Otherwise, come see me! I will be drinking Saga. As much as I can for a few hours. Try and beat that at a bar for the price point of this fest.

    That said...it will be a stupid, shit-show is a beer fest. That doesn't bother me. I am up for a drunken party from time to time.
