Lines weren't too bad most of the time. The worst line was the entrance line for pre-paid tickets. We got there at 12:45 and waited in line for 30 minutes. There was also O'Fallon and 75th street back to back in one area and the lines were crazy there just because there wasn't any space.

I was most excited to try the Boulevard Saison Noir, but it ended up just being OK. I didn't get to try the Nectar Black Xantus. Did anybody else have that? What did you think?

I was able to sample 27 different beers.

My favorites in no particular order:
Broadway Brewery - 2011 Oak Aged Imperial Stout (This was amazing! Definitely my favorite beer of the day)
Boulevard - Double Wide IPA firkin w/ cascade hops (not very cold but wow this was good)
Boulevard - 80 Acre Hoppy Wheat
Blind Tiger - Java Porter
Free State - Oak Aged Cow TIppin Stout Firkin
Free State - Storm Chaser IPA Firkin (Awesome, not bitter and the aroma was incredible)
Nebraska Brewing - Hop God (Tasted like a Hoppy Saison Brett)
Stone - Imperial Russian Stout
AND
O'Fallon - Gold (they were serving it out of a drinking fountain! Somehow it made it taste good)

I was extremely impressed with all three Broadway offerings I had: the Imperial Stout, the Kolsch, and the Porter.
