Two weeks ago I made my first visit to Idaho.
I made the venture north with some friends for the 16th Annual Mountain Brewer's Beer Fest in Idaho Falls.
It was a lot of fun, but I wondered what this event would have been like had it been on the east coast.
To sum it up, buses and taxis dumped off around 5,000 people to a small field in Idaho Falls for a $20 all-you-can-drink event.
There were many brewers from Colorado, Utah, Idaho, Washington, Oregon, and beyond pouring their classic and new beers.
I had assumed it would be wild. You know, Kentucky Derby type debauchery.
But to no avail, this was about the most "out of control" thing I witnessed.
Obviously these people never witnessed or heard of the Preakness infield. I mean, who could forget the 2007 Running of the pot-o-potties instant classic?
