I would have taken more pictures, but after two hours of "sampling" I decided to put the camera away and to enjoy myself. Overall it was a great time and I'm definitely going to attend the 7th Celebration of the Suds!
Attended the 6th annual Celebration Of the Suds in Atlantic City the first weekend of April. There were almost 75 breweries there with over 100 different beers. We started the day early and headed down to AC around noon. The first place we hit was The Trinity Irish Pub in the Piers at Caesars. They had all NJ Breweries beers on Tap in honor of the Beer Fest. There was Flying Fish, Cricket Hill, Boaks, NJ Beer Co., and River Horse. I indulged in a Flying Fish ESB.
After pre-gaming a little bit, we then headed over to the Convention center to get a early start on the line. Sure enough my mission was accomplished, I was 1st in line for the 6th annual ACBeerfest!

Once inside there was a lot of drinking and conversing with reps and brewers, along with lots of picture taking. The Next post will consist of those photos and descriptions.
Got my hop Rhizomes for this year. I went with two Nugget, since I had success with that variety my first year. Also I got one Willamette, was going to get more then I saw the biggest rhizome I've ever seen in my life.
The Nugget Rhizomes weren't as big.
The two for comparison.
I'm planning on starting them in planter boxes for this year, then I will transplant them next year. I also am going to document the hop bines growth.
