Planning an anniversary trip in the tiny area between Prague and Dusseldorf and found out about this event. Essen isn't really on our agenda, but we can include it in the schedule if it's good. Anyone been there? Worth going?

Probably be there on late friday evening. Returning from Hamburg so it depends a little on my mood. Worth? Not sure but some ticks for sure.

I'm there on Friday evening as well. Its bad that they start as late as 6pm...
As it is new this year, I agree with Roman - no idea if it is worth it - but of course you'll get some new ticks. If you like to meet in Düsseldorf for a beer, let me know - I live nearby.

I think I will focus on the Trinken Craft Beer Festival instead.

In jokes-for-german-speakers-town.

("essen" means "to eat" in German, while "trinken" means "to drink")

Sorry if that poor joke caused confusion, maybe I should be pun-ished.

Craft Beer Festivals in Germany are almost always a complete waste of time, presumably only made for " tickers" and "nerds" by incredibly creative and "hip" people. Better spend Your time in a solid brewery in Prague like Vinohradský pivovar, like Pivovar Kolčavka, like Klášterní pivovar Strahov or Pivovar Hostivar...
Duesseldorf is also not bad for a decent sip!

According to my Duolingo profile, I am only %28 proficient in German - this explains the misreading!

If only they were for tickers...
