Step One - Get really wasted before you get to the convention center. Youíre going to be drinking all night, better warm up for it. Just be cool when going through security and theyíll never know youíre liquored up.

Step Two - Donít bother eating anything before you go. Liquid nourishment is all you need and your stomach is going to be full of liquid anyway. Youíll need as much stomach space for beer as possible. You can always bum a pretzel off the nerds with the necklaces later.

Step Eleven - When they announce Last Call, use that as a signal to drink as much beer as you can in the last few
remaining visits. Hit those tables with no lines and slam down as many as you can before they kick you out the door.

Yup

The sad part is there are plenty of those at every beer festival. Not just GABF. I ran into someone (literally) who was so drunk he couldnít even formulate a sentence at NOTB. This was on the way in. What is the point of going to a beer festival if youíre going to get hammered before you even walk in the door?

A lot of older folks I saw at Philly beer week this year were hung over and in no condition to drink but they were lined up for the early events. This one guy puked in Pinocchios during the FW event.

step 16: state the obvious after a perfectly good joke: "Obviously, you should strive to be just the opposite. This list was only meant as an example of what NOT to do at the GABF."

This is America though. If they didnít put some sort of disclaimer on there, someone would inevitably try to blame them for their own stupidity and sue them.

Nothing quite like having to do a quick side step to avoid the pool of vomit as you navigate the throngs....
