This was a great event with a great crowd of people.  4 hours drinking in the sun and nothing but smiles from everyone - not even the slightest raucous to be heard.


cant wait to attend next year - plenty of room to grow at the current location!

I'm already itching for my DD to get here!

The trick with the cab is to get the drivers number when he drops you off. Anyone not camping is more than welcome to hang out and listen to music until 11:30. BYOB

Thanks, good to know!


Anybody have a clue how easy it is to grab a cab to and from the Plaza Hotel?  Unfortunately the girlfriend didnt see the excitement of sleeping outside in East Hartford after being dragged to a beer tasting.

Water will be available for sale, but unfortunately no stations (there is some water spigots). Feel free to bring a camelback, we want everyone to have as an enjoyable experience as possible.
