Funk Fest at Triumph, has it already been a year?

This event rocked last year, so I'm glad to plug here again this year. Details courtesy of Patrick Jones of Triumph in Old City Philadelphia. He may provide some more details before next weekend, but even if not...take my word based on last year (seriously, read's a fine piece of writing if I do say so!) that it will be worth your mouth-puckering time.
Funkfest on April 25th. Here are the breweries that are confirmed: Dock Street Dogfish Head Earth Bread + Brewery Fegley's/Bethlehem BrewWorks General Lafayette Iron Hill Maple Shade Iron Hill North Wales Iron Hill Phoenixville Iron Hill West Chester Manayunk Nodding Head Triumph Philly Triumph Princeton Victory Yards At least 4 more are still maybes at this point. Also, some of the confirmed breweries have more than one beer to offer. I will say that the current line-up is better than ever. It includes beers that I was unable to procure a year ago.

Do you know if this will be a ticketed event or just show up?

just show up and pay as you go (PAYG)

What time is this? (Can't find details on the triumph site)

This was a decent time, but there did not seem to be any Yards, Victory, Manayunk, or General Lafayette beers there.

My favorite beer was the Iron Hill (forget which location)'s "Self Titled" funk IPA.

Well, perhaps that lessens the blow a bit for me. Life pulled me in another direction this weekend and I never made it into Old City. Considering I'd been to Iron Hill's Beer Dinner in West Chester on Friday (all wood-aged beers, a few funky ones) might have helped as well.

Self-Titled (s/t), btw, was West Chester's.
