Brewtopia World Beer Festival?

JMF Oct 16, 2006 02:21 PM

Has anyone been to the Brewtopia World Beer Festival at Javits Center?

Is it any good? Worth $60 for a four hour session?
This year it's October 20-21, 2006

    Well I can answer my question. Boring , not well organized, and not worth the money to me. I'm glad I didn't have to pay to get in. For someone who likes beer but hasn't been exposed to a lot of varieties if you bought the $40 advance tickets it would be worth it.

    Some great brews available, just off the top of my head:
    Fullers ESB
    Erdinger Dark Wheat
    Chimay Trippel
    Several Dogfish Head
    Several Goose Island, especially the Imperial IPA
    Maredsous
    Celebrator
    Saranac Pale and IPA
