I am going to be honest and say I wasn’t impressed with this years Brewfest. I think they are cutting too many corners to make a buck. The crowd was great, well behaved and a friendly bunch but the price tag of the event $35-$40, didn’t hold water( I men beer)
Somehow I missed you at this one Erin! So much fun. And have to be unconventional and say the peanut butter porter was my fav this time around.
