Most importantly you can always get a beer. If a booth has a long line, go visit another and come back in a few minutes.
Oh that's good! Now that's a beerfest I can get into. Yeah, the one in Roanoke was much different. You purchase a certain amount of tastings, and once you've used up your tickets - that was it!

I love it and been going every year since the first one! I don't have any experiences with beerfests outside of the Triad. With that said the most disastrous one I attended was at Tanglewood a couple of years ago.

Told my wife about it and said we should definitely make plans to go next year. Since she's with child this year, she would be very bored and I can't seem to get any of my VA friends to come down to do anything anymore. They act like Greensboro is a 1000 miles away! Not even for beer!

Look for tickets to go on sale about May, two levels; VIP & general admission, $45 & $35 respectively. The VIP will get you in at 2:30 while gen admission is at 4:00. Proceeds usually go to a charity.
