6th Annual Lee’s Beer Experience

Food and Drink / Sunday, May 6th, 2012

So yesterday was the 6th Annual Lee’s Beer AND Tequila Experience and I’m actually upset to say that unless things change with the direction of this festival, I won’t be too upset that this was probably my last beer festival. It just seems to have gotten completely out of hand. I’m not sure if Lee’s already does limit the number of tickets they sell to this event but rather than give away loads and loads of 2-1 tickets, Groupons and Living Social deals which just let all the riff-raff in, they should charge full price, limit the number of people, keep free food stocked through the entire thing and for the love of God get rid of the Tequila. They added the Tequila last year and it has led to way, way more drunk, out of control people. There’s really no need for it. It was a beer festival; now it’s an AA meeting gone horribly wrong. And if I’m not mistaken, there seemed to be less beer this year. A whole quarter of an X was vacant and the other part of the X was Sake. And there was no standout beer this year either. Perhaps it would have been the Tanilla porter had I not recently already discovered it’s majesty. All in all, this was not the beer festival I have come to know an love, this was something different. The more things change, the more they change.
