Beervana Fest

I have heard that there are tickets available for the Beervana Fest at Rhodes on the Pawtuxet TONIGHT.

Doors open at 6:30 - $40 per person ... over 300 Beers for the sampling.

there were...

there were tickets left...

Supposedly their will be another Beervana in the March/April area of 2011. No specific words on this yet though. RI deserves better than the "Great International Beer Fest," which certainly is a different crowd, but emphasized the lack of moderation of the target audience. It was all about high ABVs and full tasting cups, bleh. My interpretation is that Trinity's full-pour high ABV year-round beers have something to do with this...

i feel like that Great Inter...bullfest has at this point reached a level where that expectation of drunken-ness has become a self fulfilling prophecy. i helped out at the trinity table pouring some beer and a good majority of the folks demanded (and i mean demanded, not asked) for "the strongest" or "the highest in alcohol". it became quite frustrating. there were a few folks that didnt share the same needs and actually asked questions, about process, methods, ingredients, etc. i was more than happy to slow the line up to chat with them, to very evident frustrations from the fratty types in line.

this 80/20 ratio was blessedly reversed at beervana, clearly with a much more handpicked portfolio of brewers and beers.

i think some of the trouble with the GIBF is managing the thousands(is it like 7000) of people who swarm the convention center for the cheapest open bar in town.
