OBF Wrap-up

Of the 73 beers pouring at this year's fest, I had already tried 17. Another handful are easy enough to track down in town. That left a pool of roughly 50 I hadn't or won't easily be able to try, and of these, I managed to sample my way through 16--or almost a third.

This year's fest happened to land on a delightfully cool weekend, with a high on Friday of just 72. The crowds were fairly typical, and we actually had until four before things started to get hairy. All in all, a fine time.

As to the beers--here are my findings. I'll get to the good and bad tomorrow.

I managed to go for a couple hours Thurs, Fri, & Sat (early) this year and met friends there.. we always try eachother's beers! I managed to try 33 beers not including the ones I'd had before. IMHO OBF is best attended with a crowd of beer-snobs who want to try everything!

Thanks for the great beerblog. -Brett

Each other's beers? You're not a brewing Brett whose last name is a style of beer, are you?
