The Austin Beer Festival, from the organizers that were affiliated with the shitshow of last year's Houston Beer Fest, until they weren't, have yet another shitshow to claim (or not) after this weekend's festival. The Yelp stream of super angry festival goers venting about the "fraud" sounds eerily similar to those complaints from Houston festival attendees last year, and range from someone saying he'd rather get "kicked in the nuts" and "make out with [his] grandmother" than attend again. And that's one of the tamest responses. UPDATE: The Houston Beer Fest (2nd annual) is taking great pains to distance themselves from the Austin Beer Fest, claiming no affiliation. [Yelp]
