    love this event, but i have to admit it’s getting harder and harder to attend each year as both the prices and the crowds (especially the latter) escalate. one thing i haven’t been able to find for much of any of these fests is a list of the judges. is this so they can’t be bribed? 😉 surely after the fact it would be ok to know who they were. Would also like to know if there were judges/awards at Sour Sunday, another event i liked even better, owing to the relative rarity of those beers. anybody know about these things?
