One Response to “Inaugural Big Texas Beer Fest This Weekend”

  1. Just wanted to leave a note to say how awesome this event was. Chad and Nellie did an amazing job with everything, considering it was their first event ever! The only complaints I heard of were mostly those that you hear at every event, mostly by those who are less fortunate in having attended any major similar events (GABF, etc)…beer lines, food lines, lines to get in. With that said, I also heard the longest anyone waited to get in once the doors were open was ~30 minutes…acceptable, to me, for an event of this scale. Beer lines, even the “long” ones, moved quickly and with great efficiency. Food…ok…two trucks bailed on even showing up at the event with no notice at all. The remaining food trucks were strained by this, and subsequently, long lines happened. Again, though, easily resolved going forward.

    Overall, again, this was a fantastic and successful event that was controlled and managed very well and very smoothly.
