On saturday I went for a voyage into the city of Boston to place myself in a building where 300+ beers were at my disposal. It's safe to say that this was a no brainer decision for myself and that I was not disappointed.
The American Craft Beer Fest as it was called had a total of 75 different Brewers, mostly New England based, and 300 plus beers to choose from. When you walk in after you've dropped your $40 bucks you get a little glass, probably around 4 oz or so. You then walk from booth to booth as they fill up your cup and you guzzle down one after the other (they're supposed to give you 2 oz but they certainly don't). That's pretty much all you do for 3 1/2 hours. Drink beer. Delicious beer. IPAs, Stouts, Ales, Lagers. Whatever you desire, its there.
So what I'm saying is, if a Beer Fest comes to your town, Go. It won't be a bad decision.
