Sure if one's only desire is to maximize pub visits, my preference is to spend some time and enjoy multiple beers, foods and the atmosphere. I think of it as the young bull wanting to run down the hill to spend time with a cow and the old bull telling him we'll walk down and spend time with them all...YMMV
I get what you're saying, but I am not going to skip the trip just cause there isn't enought time.
Plus it is easier for me to go and go back next year. I am not aiming to sample 3300 beers, just
a handfull. Hell, I have never sampled all 2200 beers at the GABF nor have I tried.
But you have given me a place to aim for 3000 beers? That sound like a good starting point. And if it
is the only place I visit, it would be a damn fine place to mark as a notch on my walking stick.
Weather looks like it will be soggy but oh well, more reason to stay indoors and sample. Plus,
I am using the trip to guage a possible trek for Westy12. I doubt I will make it to St. Sixtus this
time but at least I will have blazed a trail to gain knowledge of surroundings.
