When you branch out and start trying something new with no prior experience, that recipe will only end in failure. Suffice to say, here in Southern California, the folks at the Santa Fe Springs Swap Meet attempted this same feat of hosting an event in unfamiliar territory. Known for its attraction to budget-conscious customers, this swap meet usually books local tribute bands to keep customers entertained on weekends.
However, this past weekend, they wanted to try something different by adding craft beer to the mix. With a forlorn stubborn attitude, the organizers marched head-on into battle, unaware of the consequences.

As per the above visual, once the 6: Does this remind you of something? When the event staff cannot properly handle incoming attendees, already you can tell something went wrong. As I waited in line, I discovered that nearly everyone else in line had never attended a beer fest prior to this. I feel sorry that their first beer fest greeted them with this long line, and an even bigger frustration to come.

Once the guests enter, each guest receives only five drink tickets, good for a 7oz pour of beer each. Does the swap meet care that much about money to blatantly rip off guests that much?Santa Fe Springs Swap Meet
Also, for a sold-out beer fest, it took place in a small, cramped picnic area in the center of the swap meet. Even the food trucks struggled to fit snugly between the poles in the picnic area. All the breweries represented did not bring any special or limited beers — anybody could purchase any of the beers available here elsewhere all year round.
Most of the breweries represented did not bring any representatives from the brewery to this fest — only Stone and Hangar 24 sent a representative. If you thought the line to enter the fest took too long to get through, you had not seen anything yet. Even the staff from the Grilled Cheese Truck, notorious for bringing long lines of customers everywhere, could not believe what transpired at this beer fest. At a typical beer fest, a line forms for every brewery or every beer available at the fest.
This beer fest decided to keep most of the beer in one location: One endlessly long line of people trying to drink some beer tasters. This line stretched all the way to the entrance of the fest, then curled back around.

Just to add salt to the abrasion, all attendees could only receive up to two beers at a time. I should not have to describe the anger and frustration of all the guests in line, as it goes without saying. Personally, I believe that most of the attendees purchased the entry ticket moreso for the bands than the beer. Nowadays, more than a million people visit the swap meet every year. Inthe drive-in theater ceased daily operations due to decreasing attendance and the rising popularity of the swap meet.

Pretty much anything you could want. I recommend bringing your appetite to the swap meet, cause there are tons of tasty food options!
To quench your thirst, there is a beer garden serving more than 20 beers on tap. But they are most famous for their micheladas served all day long! The swap meet has a large stage and covered seating area featuring live music every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. This area also includes large HD TVs showing popular sporting events.

Totally an awesome lineup. Here are lots of pics of Green ToDay! Believe me when I say this is only a small portion of what I actually took. I always love watching my man play, and the rest of the bands totally rocked too! All the more reason to go again!
