    Cityview Brewfest

    A few of my friends and I were considering going to Brewfest in Des Moines on Saturday. I was wondering if anyone who has gone in the past could tell me if it was fun/worth it?

    Do you have something better to do? I can't think of too many other options available in central Iowa that allow you to sample so many different beers.


    Keep doing what you're doing to build Strong Towns.

    There a place online where there is a list of the 350 different types. My guess would be that these are all going to be limited to beers that can only be brought in to Iowa. It would be a pretty awesome time to check that out.

    Yeah, it definitely sounds like a good time. I just thought I'd see if any CF'ers have been in the last couple of years to see if it'd be worth the $23 and drive from Ames.

    I'm going with about 5-6 other guys. Should be a great time. Apparently there's a DMB cover band playing at People's and our ticket stubs get us in free, so that will be alright too.

    It was a good time but could be better IMO. They have the entire concourse but instead they pack all vendors into one half of one side.

    It's very crowded and it doesn't have to be if they spread people out a little more. Lines weren't terribly long and the beer was tasty but moving around crowds of stationary people the whole time was somewhat annoying.

    After leaving last year I decided it was fun but maybe not $28 fun. Wouldn't discourage anyone from checking it out though.

    Why would you come in and berate someones musical tastes in a thread that was otherwise going fine?

    Because he's crazy, and semi-illiterate?

    Are you hating on DMB or the fact that it is a cover band?
