OBF 2004 Wrap-up

Time and monetary considerations prevented me from spending as much time or trying as many beers as I would have liked to this year, but I still had a great time and was able to enjoy the festival with friends.

The Good: Muscat Love from Widmer, Boundary Bay’s Dry Hopped Simcoe Pale Ale, Laurelwood’s Organic Monkey Malt Liquor, Tuck’s Red Rye Lager, the hippie New Orleans jazz band, the surprising coolness despite 100ºF weather, and the elation that several beers, good weather, and good company brings.

The Bad: Couldn’t reuse/recycle mugs from previous events, sample size increased, as well as price for samples, drinking water was scarce and warm, Mango Tango, and the blinking Ropewalk necklaces that transmitted the following message in Morse Code: “Bridgeport sells out!”

Sadly, there were a few brewers I missed this year, so I’ll have to try again next year.

  • yeah I had a great time. But I have to say that I am really disappointed with Bridgeport and their stupid marketing lately (god I hate Clearchannel). I mean whats next? Football commercials with twins in bikinis?
