I went in 2013 and thought "that's enough for me".

Unfortunately we don't get their beers in Fort Worth so I'm confused by all the hullabaloo.

I've been every year, but I get in with the homebrewers and pour my beer.  That makes it free and there's never a line at the homebrewer booths.  I don't know yet if that will change this year and I do not have a spare $200 for beer.

The draw previously was to get a bottle of Hunna. There are always really good breweries pouring which you can't get in the SE otherwise.

The Hunna is now going to be released regularly and sold at retail, so that is a ton of money to spend to have some samples.

Their flagship beers are incredible. I still consider Jai Alai to be the best IPA, IMO.
