Three Floyds makes some of the best beer in the world (in my humble newbie opinion), but they still have a little bit to learn about how to throw a festival. Be prepared to wait in long long long....long lines.
So how did Cigar City's Hunahpu's Day compare to Three Floyd's Dark Lord Days? It was amazing. We arrived around 9:45 am waiting for the gates to open at 11:00...not too early, not too late. The line was fairly long, but wasn't too scary yet. While standing in line some new friends explained what was going to happen; a crew of Cigar City employees are working their way up the line checking IDs and giving us a wrist band. After them will come a second crew of Cigar City employees giving us a second wrist band...a gold one, to be able to purchase Hunahpu's beer at 3:30pm that day. Once the clock struck 11:00 am, the gate opened and we flooded into Cigar City's showcase of fun. Amazing.
Armed with a map of the terrain, also provided by the crew from Cigar City, it was time to navigate to one of the many stations and acquire a beverage. All of the stations provided Hunahpu's (genius) as well as their own special varieties in addition to the event beer; mixing it up while providing variety...again; genius. So many amazing breweries were represented. Check out tweets @cosmosbeerblog for some other pics and comments.
Also, check out the quick video of the adventure at Hunahpu's Day. If you were there you might just see yourself :)
