Well, THAT wasn't very fun at all! Unless you like waiting in 45 minute lines for a 1/4 cup "tasting" of beer that you finish in 90 seconds, then go back to line up to do it all again, all while sweltering on a shadeless blacktop parking lot with a choice of $18 lobster rolls or mediocre chicken & waffles. Badly planned, poorly organized, horrible location. Good beer, though, if you could get to it!

You were relatively lucky. One hour in line and they ran out of beer on the people before us.
Refund line only took about five minutes though.

That's what I was telling my friends - with the crowds like they were, I doubted they would have enough beer to make it through the end of the day. Glad they offered refunds, I was tempted to ask for them 20 minutes into being there!
