2013 Columbia World Beer Festival All About Beer Magazine - Volume , Issue December 4, 2012 erin_heiderman 1 Comment Horace Martin says: January 21, 2013 at 11:02 am This years WBF was the worst I have attended. The severe lack of vendors is unacceptable. My reason for attending a beer festival would be to try new and exciting beers. This years festival had nothing new or exciting. Again 64 vendors is unacceptable, there is a restaurant across the street from the festival that has more beer than that on tap. The first festival I attended was, I think, two years ago. There was an opening ceremony, tapping a rare keg, and plenty of vendors. They have abandoned the opening ceremony and vendors have abandoned them.
