    Yeah…thats like 5 min from my crib! Now all I have to do is learn how to drink at these things without getting totally faced;)

  2. ryan says:

    First hint: if you don’t like it, don’t slam it, dump it. If it’s just okay, don’t feel the need to drink the beer – save it for the good stuff.

  3. Duke says:

    I blame those damn, tiny glasses…I can never gauge how much Ive drank. Maybe Ill pratice for a week or two before the event with an old ABR glass. Oh, and Ive rarely met a beer I truly didnt like…Carling Black Label springs to mind though.

  4. JJ says:

    Is there any more info for this event? Is all the beer free once you get in. What is so good about being VIP?

  5. docsvenaor says:

    I am glad to see this finally happening out there. Its been talked about for a couple years now. It should be a great event.

  6. ryan says:

    JJ – more info in a week or two. we’ll keep you posted.

  7. Chip W. says:

    That is so awesome. Winterfest first, though, beer fans.

  8. DanK says:

    Duke – You might want to get yourself some new panties or we can just decide to NOT go drinking afterwards. That seems to usually add the cherry on top.

    I call the couch!

  9. Mark says:

    If your a VIP it means you get one hour with only 50 other people and you get a more personal experience from the brewery reps, more time to ask questions ya know!
    Plus an extra hour of drinking those delicious beers!
    CHECK OUT THE WEBSITE, still basic, but more to come soon.

  10. Sean says:

    Where’s the website?

  11. Duke says:

    I love you DanK. New panties ordered!

  12. John says:

    A beer festival on a Sunday???

    I am not the only person with an important job to do Monday morning am I?

  13. Ben says:

    John> First thing I noticed too. Guess people that have to work a normal job will just have to exercise some self control.

  14. Trav says:

    Drinking on the lords day?! Never.

  15. Greg says:

    Rochester, NY has an event at their ballpark. It is well attended because it seems that the brewers bring their more public accessible stuff.

  16. Tam says:

    How does an ordinary beer-lover like myself get tickets to such an event?

  17. Matt says:

    I Can’t wait, This should be awesom!
    My wife is going to be my sober cab. She want’s to bring our 2 year old to enjoy the outdoors with us. Is it weird bringing kids to this event?

  18. FGump says:

    Yeah, it’s weird to bring your kids.. unless they’re drinking too.

  19. Matt says:

    I agee…. This one is for the adults.

  20. Mark says:

    I will be there hosting a table for any interested UC Davis Alumni who live in the MSP area and are attending the event. Look for the Aggie Banner and come by and say hi. We can raise a (few) glasses and compare beer notes and talk about the good old days back at Davis remember Sudwerk Brewery. Look for a UCD in MSP site coming soon to promote this cool Summer Beer Fest and other social events to come!

  21. greg says:

    has anyone who pre-ordered tickets recieved theirs yet? their website said they would be mailed at the beginng of may, and i still havent recieved mine. just wondering if anyone else has had a problem with this? i have tried to contact the orginizers, but with no success. i hope this isnt a scam

    please e-mail me with any information. thanks

  22. ben says:

    Greg, I have not received my tickets either and I also never heard back from the organizers, did you ever get a reply from them?

  23. ben says:

    Follow up to my previous comment, I received my ticket in the mail yesterday, 5/28.

  24. bond says:

    this will be a great weekend

  25. bond says:

    VIP is $40 right

  26. Saphireblues says:

    three questions:
    1st: They say there is music. What is the line up? Does anyone know who is playing.
    2nd: If you buy VIP, do you stay later or come earlier?
    3rd: can you drink as much as you want, or is there just a set amount of tickets you are given.
    Anyone know?

  27. chris says:
