All the beers were great, food was great! In the future, would like to see a better flow. Lot of beer vendors without food around, then food all collected together it seemed. Also, many of the vendors packed up and left so quickly before event was over. And many vendors had little to no information about the beers. Possible to get an electronic guide next time. I don't remember most of the beers I had or where they came from!

This event far exceeded my expectations! I plan to go next year with my friends. SUPER FUN, you're outside yet protected, and the beer and food was outstanding. Wasn't thrilled going into it, and now I'm a big fan.

This was one of the best events we've attended. Compared to the BBQ event held at Soldier Field for several years this was a 10+. The organisation and structure was great, more food and drinks than one can consume, and spread out to eliminate long lines. I would definitely attend next year and encourage more friends to accompany us.
