    There is two big Eddie beer festivals. Which one are you talking about? Heard one is uber lame and the other one is its first time in the city of (x) champions.

    This one: http://edmontoncraftbeerfest.com/

    I think the "uber lame" one you're referring to is this one: http://internationalbeerfest.com/, which having looked at the website and photos from last year, seem to be very macro-heavy.

    Wish I was going. Was looking forward to working 2 tables and being involved. Sadly got other plans at that time. And then it's the EBGA Cask Day Festival at the end of June!!!

    He was talking about the Edmonton Beer Festival, not the Edmonton Craft Beer Festival.

    I'm referring to mattsanders quote of hoser ("uber lame").

    Wes
    Wish I could go. As long as you're selective, you should have a great time as there are quite a few good beers on that list. On the flip side, there are still a few questionable items(not sure if I want to dignify them by calling them beer).

    Minhas should have no business being anywhere near a "craft" beer festival.

    GWB is also gonna be there sampling Brewhouse, which I honestly find hard to believe.
