The entrance to the Great American Beer Festival on Saturday 9/26/2015.  A very large crowd formed prior to them opening the doors for the festival.  Despite the large number of people, everyone was calm and in good spirits, I did not notice one fight or argument while I was there.

Perhaps the largest line of the festival was surrounding Dudes and Brews who was serving a Cannabis Sativa Beer at the event.  From my understanding it was the only weed or cannabis beer at the event.

Here was Russian River’s both.  I suppose that when your beer is as good as theirs, you don’t really need a flashy both.  I reached their location about an hour after they let everyone in and all that was left was their Porter.
