This event used to be awesome, but now it is too crowded. The new set-up in the beer tasting room is terrible--they used to have booths around the perimeter and now they have "aisles", which are too crowded and there are too many lines. We have gone every year since it started, but probably won't go again next year.

It's definitely a great time. This is my second time in the past 3 years and this year seemed to be way busier on Saturday at the start of that event than before but it was fun with a lot of different great wines and beer. The sample food was good too.

I really enjoy going to this event every year. We always try new wines, beers, and foods! However, I prefer the way they had it organized in the past - where the wine/beer stations alternated with food stations or other vendors. It broke things up a little more, compared to the last two years where the entire first isle was nothing but wine (it took us 2 hours just to get through the first isle while the set up was like this).

This is such a great event! You get to spend hours sampling and learning about new beers, wines, and food, and, of course, enjoy free tastes of your favorites! It is so worth the cost of admission. The Groupon makes a good deal a great one! I highly recommend it!
