Here is Don with his first sample of beer. I have not a clue as to what brewery it was from........there were so many brewery's! As many brewery's as there were.....there were just as many producer's of cheese, too.
We'd gotten to the event early. This is what the crowd looked like about 30 minutes after it opened. Later in the day, the hall was packed and no open patches like this were seen.
I'm not a beer drinker, but I did taste a number of samples. I have to admit there a couple I did enjoy. But cheese.......there wasn't one that I didn't like. ;) So many and all good!
Don likes beer and enjoys a good microbrew, but there were a few that he wasn't too excited about. Thankfully, there were buckets around for emptying those samples into. ;)
We stood in line with these 2 guys who were quite the chatterer's. :) They were very enjoyable and seemed well acquainted with quite a few of the brewery's.....giving us pointers and what we could expect from some of them. A couple of friendly, Wisconsin beer loving characters. ;)
One thing that was spontaneous and hilarious during the event was when someone inadvertently dropped their little sample glass, which of course would break on the concrete floor of the hall, the people near them would say "awwwwwww", which was taken up by the crowd and within a second, the whole hall was resounding with "AWWWWWWWWWWWW". As time passed, there were more "AWWWWWWW'S" and more often. Gee, I wonder why? ;)
