Anybody else hit up Snallygaster on Saturday? We took Metro in. We had to switch trains on the way home, and as soon as the train door opened, one person in our party flew out the door and projectile vomited on the platform several time. Another person had to pee so bad that they urinated on the platform. This was my first beer festival, I guess now I know what they are all about.

so you tasted dozens of beers, possibly along with interesting food, got to nerd out with thousands of other beer geeks, had a good time for several hours... but the experience is defined 2 individuals acting out of bounds? ;D

Honestly those will be the two things etched in my mind forever.

Favorite Snallygaster beers:

Crooked Stave Mama Bear Sour Cherry Pie Woodford Reserve Rye (Wild ale)
American Solera Blackberry Year Two Blend (Wild ale)
Other Half DDH Other Half Double Mosaic (DIPA)
Other Half Rice Proxy Treats (Imp Stout)
The Veil BBA Circle of Wolves (Barleywine)
Firestone Walker Coconut Rye Parabola (Imp Stout)
Southern Grist Strawberry Upside Down Cake (milkshake IPA)
Red Dragon Imperial Thus Passion (sour ale)

Disappointments:

The Cantillon on draft wasn't nearly as good as from a bottle
Founders CBS is still way too much of a sweet mess for me
I want to stick with the sentimental favorites, but Focal Banger from a can was good but if I went to VT I'd probably buy just a four pack and not the max.

The lobster roll was tasty. They gave my daughter* a VIP laminate which allowed her to get some free food samples. The Pietasters were fun as always. My wife and daughter called the festival "a complete waste of time."

The end.

*she was not the puker or urinator

sounds like fun.  that was a solid flight of tasters.  i'd love to try the  Coconut Rye Parabola.

what was the cantillon they had on tap?  just their standard gueuze?

My wife and daughter called the festival "a complete waste of time."

really?  based on the social medias, the wife seemed to be enjoying herself...

Yeah, my wife is fickle like that.  ;)

The Cantillons were: St Lamvinus, Nath,  Rose de Gambrinus, and Vignerrone. They all appeared to be on fraft. Conversely, the Drie Fontenein was poured from bottles.

Another one I really liked was the Horus Menush.
