It's not just in my hometown, it's also once of the oldest beer festivals around. Now I'll be honest with you. It isn't one of my favourites. Partly because of the limited range of beers on sale (just Bokbiers). And the fact that it gets full of loud, pissed-up twats in the evening. And the music is too loud.
But nowhere's perfect. I have my own plan: turn up early and piss off when the idiots arrive. A nice leisurely afternoon session when it's nice and quiet.
I'll be there soon after 12:00 on Saturday. Should you have the urge to press beer or money upon me, I'll either be hogging one of the scarce seats. Or hanging around the bookstall.
