Facebook Post

David T. commented on World of Beer Festival℠'s status.
"The beer selection is phenomenal, and I love the cider and mead options as well. I like that these are all hand selected by beer geeks and not by distributors. There's just not another fest I've seen that comes anywhere close. Ha ha... last fest I tasted no less than 70 beers, meads, and ciders. How do I know this? Well I took notes on each and every one. And a relatively high percentage of them were excellent. Can't beat that."
