NOVA Brewfest
« on: June 10, 2011, 03:47:06 AM »
I'll be hitting this again this year.  June 25th & 26th.  Pretty nice lineup.  New additions this year include The Bruery and Ommegang.  It was a lot of fun last year.  Hot as hell though.

I didn't know they were into brewing too. American Experience should jump on the bandwagon.

I just made a PBS joke. I'll hide my shame with my tote bag.

Never been to one (and won't be at this one since we'll be in NOLA) but is this one your typical way overcrowded, long lines, drunk frat boys, mess of a brewfest or is it better?

Last year was the first I went.  We went early, around 11:00 AM I believe, and stayed until around 4, which was plenty of time to hit everything we wanted to.  The lines and crowds were not bad at all. 

Now, as we were leaving it looked like the second shift was starting to arrive and I'm guessing the mess was probably about to start.

You are on the Frontline of PBS humor Phil!   ;)
