    It was a lot of fun for sure! Love that courtyard on a nice night. The sandstone gave it a European feel and the uplighting in the courtyard made it a very cool destination. I'm looking forward to going to other events there, as the team that put it on did a great job.

    Wish they had more food options and rarer beers but otherwise, great!

    Don't forget to check out the vintage brewery advertising display I'm putting together inside the Exhibit Room. It's where most of the beer will be poured, FYI.
