    Default The Best Beer Garden??

    I like the one in between the main and outdoor stage...you can hear the music from either of those 2 stages depending on what side you drink. 2nd best to me is the one in the back by the sahara...although i could of been drunk but in 2004 I thought i used to be able to hear the beats while drinking in it...the last 2 years i barely could hear the mojave tent. I strongly request moving that tent over so I can hear the beats while I drink..last for me is the big one on the left where you first walk in...its seems to me to be more like a bar scene than actually about the music not mentioning that it's as far away from the main stage as you can get....thoughts?? reflections???

    I believe it's the tent close to the Sahara that has Red Bull and Vodka,so that's my pick.
    I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. . . . corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.

    I learned last year that the beer garden between the main stage and outdoor theatre can prove to be a great place to enjoy an act or two.

    But, beware - before you know it, you've been sittin' in the beer garden and 4 hours have passed and all you've heard is the couple of acts on the main stage.

    Still yet, 40 proof is still more alcohol than most standard beers? Am I disillusioned or is everyone being spoiled bitches?

    Very true, however I don't like people calling a Hyundai a Porsche. Sure, the Hyundai will get you there but not near as fast as a Porsche.

    Also, one beer is roughly equivalent to one shot of 80 proof liquor. I don't know if they up the volume of Soju to offset the alcohol content, but if they're using one shot of Soju you're getting half the alcohol of a beer for 2 dollars more.

    No way. Even in strong states, beer is 6% alcohol. Which makes it 12 proof.

    Correct me please, cuz I have no ego.

    you are wrong.

    most beers are 10 proof (5% alcohol).

    a shot of vodka is 80 proof.

    the vodka is therefore 8 times stronger (8 times as much alcohol).

    however, a beer is 12 ounces while a shot of vodka is 1 ounce. therefore, a bottle of beer has 50% more alcohol than a shot of vodka.

    Crazzz is on the right track, but a true shot is an ounce and a half.

    One 12 oz. beer at 5% = 1 1/2 ounces (1 shot) of 80 proof liquor = 5 oz. of wine

    Roughly

    And I'm not trying to be a know-it-all like with the drug threads, but I worked as a legal secretary for my pops who handled a lot of drunk driving cases, so he was frequently explaining alcohol contents and BACs and shit.

    I thought the beer garden by the main stage was setup really well this year. They had bathrooms inside and they moved the fences closer to both the main stage and outdoor stage so you could stay in the garden and still see the shows well.

    the first one was HORRIBLE, way too many drunkards and the place stank. the one in between the main and outdoor stage was OK, but i never really managed to see anyone from there. the one by the sahara was really chill, plenty of available shade and those meatball sandwiches were probably the best deal food wise.

    I had a free VIP pass for Sunday. They have a full bar in there man. What the hell? As if us regular people don't want hard alcohol as well?

    I chose the beer tent #2, but personally I wish you could take your beer anywhere on the grounds. The Vegoose festival allows that and I do not know if they have any problems with that, but I think that it makes the festival much more enjoyable.
