    Ack, blocked at work! Would anyone be able to send me the pdf or as a word document? Silly work filters.

  2. Andy S says:

    Um no chairs, blankets or coolers?

  3. chad says:

    That’s odd about the chairs. Didn’t seem they took up much room last year.

    But, can I just say one thing?


  4. MNCBG says:

    The city tore up all the grass area so it is no longer an area we are allowed to use, that being said there is really no place for chairs or blankets. Coolers have never been allowed for outside food and drink reasons.

  6. chad says:

    Aye, just noticed the fence line on the guide map, and you’re right, there really isn’t a place for chairs now. Bah.

    There were two tents last year with a walkway between them, right?

  7. Andy S says:

    Yep and plenty of room for chairs last year…..this is just going to make people huddle next to tents and make more chaos and crowd problems then ever before….I have to say I may not attend this event in the future becuase of this chairs were a saving grace every year.

  8. Ben says:

    Chairs are a saving grace for a beer fest? Seriously?

  9. MNCBG says:

    I forgot to mention in the previous post – we will have picnic table seating for 350, which we did not have in the past. The city closed in on some of our land space and we are trying to relieve/control congestion. Thank you for your concerns – we want to stay at this fabulous site, variables change each year and are addressed by our festival committee. Cheers to some great beers Saturday!

    That’s a big picnic table. I’m excited to see it. er…

  11. Ben says:

    Gonna be a fun time. Now we just have to hope the weather forecast improves.

  12. Trav says:

    Pretty sure it’s supposed to snow.

  13. Ben says:

    Should note that Obama will be in town on Saturday speaking at the Target Center. Plan accordingly as there may be some traffic jams around Minneapolis.
