35/366: "International Great Beer Expo"

35/366: "International Great Beer Expo"

 

Tonight, we attended the International Great Beer Expo at the Meadowlands Convention Center. We had a good time and got to hang a bit with a friend who worked the floor earlier in the day.

 

Found some great new breweries and some new varieties from companies I already know.

 

We started off the night with a glass of Ruckus Brewing Hoptimus Prime (which I thoroughly enjoyed) accompanied by what turned out to be a pretty good cheesesteak and fries, while the rest of the crowd rushed the brewers tables. By the time we wrapped up, the lines were down and we were off to the races.

 

50+ breweries from 20 different countries. Some good, some great...some not so much. My goal was to not taste anything I've had before. I wound up trying at least 20 different types and found a few that I absolutely loved.

 

All in all, a good night!
