Yes, it was slightly negative, but only due to the beer selection (which
is the main reason I went!) Reducing the waiting time is no excuse for
serving mainstream-style beer. If they continue to limit selection and
only serve the styles they did this year, I WON'T be attending next year.

By all means, if you've never been, try to make it next year!
