My wife and I attended this event and overall we were disappointed. The place was really crowded and there wasn't room for people to move around in the upper section. The selection of beers was also lacking. Some of the beers that were advertised were not available, and the beers that were available were mostly the generic lagers of each country that you can find in any bar or store. We were hoping for beers from around the world that we have never seen before or tried, like what was available in the Canada stand. Also, there were no dump buckets for the beers that we didn't like, or were warm because the servers didn't chill enough. The servers were nice but many didn't know anything about the beers and the signs didn't say what the beers were. With some tweaking, this event could be a lot better. Things like a venue with more space, dump buckets, better selection of unknown beers, including at least one beer from Africa, and better signage could make this a really great event.

The set up for this event was awful, it was hard to go to any of the beer samples and the samples were only about 2/3 of the small sample cup.

Go on Friday or early Saturday, if you can, because it was very crowded and they ran out of a lot of the different beers during the Saturday evening session.
