    Never heard of it, which surprises me as I am west of there by only 30 minutes or so.

    I've never been to this, but I know other that have gone and there's nothing really special that's on tap if that's what you're expecting. The brewery list is average, in my opinion, at best. To me it's one of those "let's try to get the average Joe into craft beer and wine" fests, which is fine, but not my thing. You can pretty much go to any store in town and get 95% of the beers they will have at the fest.
