"Original" Beerfest

New Times Beerfest: What Did You Think?

A few hours after nursing our hangovers, we're just now venturing out to watch football, grab grease, and maybe go see some music after last night's bender.

Some favorite beers from the fest were the Brooklyn Saison and the Shipyard Blue Fin Stout, a write-in candidate that won me over. Seems everyone else liked them too, with tents racking up lines that killed up to ten minutes to wait for a pour. By the night's end, pounding Mike's Hard Lemonade paired with Swisher Sweets was perfectly acceptable. Some folks who came late remarked that watching drunks stagger and sway was well worth the (discounted) price of admission.

For your Sunday perusal, we bring you some weekend photos from the event. In the meantime, tell us your favorite beer, tales from the fest, or anything else you'd like to share about last night in the comments. Don't forget to check out the slideshow here.

Tune in tomorrow for announcements on the winning beers.
