BEER FEST! – I have attended MANY beer festivals in my day (including GABF twice), but my hands down favorite was the 7th annual Legendary Boonville Beer Festival on April 19, 2003. Hosted by Anderson Valley Brewing Company in Boonville, CA (where I also camped that night), it was one of the most organized, fun events ever. The actual fest was great, but the after party at the brewery was truly legendary. Fal Allen did a great job keeping it all together, it was awesome.
