It seems that NLC has a hard time creating events that don't end up being full of 19-20 year olds who just get shitfaced and make a mess of it (ie. spiritfest and beerfest). My guess would be that it's their newest attempt to host a beer event without it turning into that.

I think this "Beer themed Event" should be about Craft beer only. Forget about the Coors and Budlight Lime crowd and make an event for us. Fill the place up with some smoked porters, imperial IPAs, and Barely Wines... that'll keep the Riff Raff out.

Someone from the NLC should go to Montreal and see the Mondial de la Biere in action. No charge entry, but you have to pay for what you consume. The attitude here in Newfoundland is I paid $40 so I am going to get my money's worth and drink $40 (or more) worth of products. That leads to overconsumption and problems.

They are trying to shift the format of this event to help cut down on the just get drunk crowd and they're setting it up to be well lit with booths set up to be able to get into some education etc. No live music and flashing lights etc. They have no budget for sending anyone to Mondiale this year but Tom and I are both planning to go so we can pretend we're the eyes and ears for the NLC :D

I might want four tickets. The folks might join us.
Think about it, we are buying the bottles. We are just renting the beer!
