    I hope they put all the local stuff upstairs again. It was nice to just go up there and try all of the Iowa/midwest beer.

    I've never been to this one but heard the lines are brutal. Any truth?

    Never been myself, but the website has a bunch of pics from last year. Looks crowded but not overly so. On the radio, they said they are hoping for 3000 people. Last year there were 2500.

    Gal I work with said they got there about the last 45 minutes and wound up getting in free.
