Most of the beers were pretty good this year. There were a few that were too hoppy for my taste (doesn't matter I was DD anyway). They had a good variety of types of beer too - a couple IPAs, a couple porters, etc. Willoughby was a lot of fun to check out. The bars were all a pretty good size and very close to each other. It was definitely a success and we'll probably go again next year.
