Yeah, the Beer event was fun and all, but it has grown a bit out of
control in my opinion. I didn't have that many problems the past

At some point we were stuck in the middle of a pushing crowd and there
was a pregnant lady with us, so we got quite scared and we ended up

I had a couple of tokens with me but decided to give up, asked the guy
to take them back so that I could reach my people, and he firmly
denied. Not a big deal, but it pisses you off after you've done so
many donations of all kind and somebody refuses a simple courtesy like

Perhaps it makes sense to either try some more crowd control (the two
guys of the security were really helpless with so many people) or
split the event in more pubs around the area.

But well, this is also part of the fun I guess!

Overall the experience was great, and the organisers did an amazing job.
