EXTREMELY crowded, but very well organized. We had a great time.

This is a busy event but worth it if you can get in on 15 samples.

The beer was great lots of choices. The only downside was a long wait in line to get in.

There were a lot of people so the lines got a little long but with a beer in hand the waits weren't so bad. There was quite the line at the entrance but it went fast. I would recommend getting their early if you want to get in quickly and start drinking.

Awesome experience, all the beers, the vibe, the atmosphere. The only negative is that you've got to go to this event extremely early. If doors open at 2, I highly encourage you to get their at 1. The line to get in was RIDICULOUS!!! Other than that, awesome experience.

A good selection of beers and a great place to have the gathering. Maybe a bit oversold...

Great Festival! Would have liked to have more food options available (but we were there for the beer). Great charity to support too! Advertised live music but we didn't see or hear any. Hmm? Had fun anyway and found some new great beers!

The line to get in was the length of the Minneapolis Convention Center and went outside around the building. Luckily it only took 40 minutes to get in. Go to the breweries that you're really wanting to taste from because many kinds were out by the time we made it to some with a more specialized flavor.
