    I hate that I missed it this year. I went last year and it was a blast. I am definitely going next year. I hope everybody has a wonderful time because it looks like a kick ass show this year.

    #202 5 months ago
    Quoted from lancestorm:

    How are the crowds or is there a set limit on number of paying customers? Curious how this one is compared to crowded settings like tpf and lax.

    There’s plenty of great playing games to play. You may have to wait to play the newest and most popular, but not for long. Excellent show!

    A big Thank You to the Pinbrew Show organizers as this year's event was fantastic. Whatever preparations Keith and Marvin had been up to really paid off -- so many games in great playing condition, so many tasty food vendors, such a great environment for this kind of event! Pinbrew should easily be considered one of the premier pinball shows in the nation.

    A few random pictures from the show:

    I was able to play many new-to-me games as well as revisit some classics/favorites I have not played in awhile. I attended Friday afternoon/evening; there were definitely more people than last year but there was always a game available to play. Only game I had to wait a short time for was Cactus Canyon. . . and that was only for a couple minutes.

    I also experienced something new in the food world -- Polish Nachos! (sorry about the picture focus, must have been the beers )

    Definitely looking forward to next year!

    #205 5 months ago

    Found a couple more from the show floor.

    I was able to put a few games in on mrm_4 's gorgeous Xenon. I followed his restoration here in Pinside and the end result did not disappoint!

    IMG_9897A (resized).JPG

    Lastly, I brought a buddy to the show that grew up with pinball but has not experienced it as much recently. Lebowski and the Munsters were his favorites. We had a great time!

    I spent all day at Pinbrew on Friday. The show and craft beers were awesome! I got to play all the new titles and there was a great selection of DMD games. Most of the games were well cared for and in good working order. There was always a machine open somewhere. Tilt amusements really stepped up and brought at least 12 new Stern titles. Coin Taker had a nice booth and there was also a distributor for Multimorphic there. They had the new Weird Al machine. The tournament area seemed to be pretty busy as well. I got to meet several pin heads from all over the place. My son and I thouroughly enjoyed ourselves.

    We stayed at the hotel that had blocks of rooms set aside for Pinbrew. Did anyone else have money under their windshield wiper? I thought that someone may have put $2 bills on everyone's winsheild. I couldn't verify this because we pulled off on the highway to get the $2 dollar bill.

    #207 5 months ago

    Great show! If somebody wants to sell me that Stern Indiana Jones send me a note!

    #208 5 months ago

    Keith and Marvin,
    Thank you for an amazing show. I spent all day there yestereday and had a blast. The highlight of the show for me was the amazing people. It was so refereshing to be around positive, like-minded people that were just interested in having a good time. Both of you should feel amazing about putting together a space for people to be their best selves. Oh, and there was pinball and beer. Both were amazing. The only downside is the show is going to cost me some money because I need to find a Lebowski. Thanks again for a great show.

    Awesome show. Personally my favorite but I have not been to a lot. Just well-done and they have beer! Haha.

    #211 5 months ago

    The beer was also on point!
    Jelly and blue balls were top notch

    So glad to see this show come alive again

    Thank you Keith and Marvin ,Pinbrew 2022 was fantastic. I found a GZ banner for my pinball bar room.

    Thanks again

    #217 5 months ago

    Absolutely fantastic show! Great job to everyone involved! Amazing how many A+ machines available to play with little to no wait. And the beers were delicious. Can’t wait until next year!

    #218 5 months ago

    Great photos and stories! Looks like a solid show I should start attending.

    #219 5 months ago

    A+ show. Very old to very new games and most played well. Excellent food, beer, and facility. From scrap parts to mods to vendors, even polite and friendly guests.


    #220 5 months ago

    What and amazing show. The games were nicely spread and were functioning well the whole time. The guests seemed very laid back and respectful of the games as well. With a great mix of games and modest lines even at the busiest times.

    Great job to everyone who worked to pull off such a wonderful event.

    #221 5 months ago

    Keith and Marvin have done an excellent job again, but I wanted to also thank their family and friends who helped run everything. Those folks gave up their weekend to sell tickets, admission, and beer and I'm grateful!

    Here's to Pinbrew 3!

    #222 5 months ago

    Congratulations to everyone behind the scenes of Pinbrew 2. This is easily one of the best shows around. So many killer games. Can't wait until next year.

    I saw 391 plays on the Game Show that I brought on behalf of a friend. Had zero issues with it and we were both surprised how popular it was.

    And then they rested.

    #228 5 months ago

    Home and in bed already. Not unloading or anything. But the tilt both had over 4000 plays on them combined

    #229 5 months ago

    Keith and the PinBrew Crew put on a great show!!! I had a great time meeting everyone and making some new friends!

    Watching everyone smile and laugh while playing Weird Al was definitely the highlight of the show for me! Heist was a big hit also!

    Big thanks to Sjsilver for taking the time to be there!! Everyone was excited to talk to him about the design process of Weird Al!

    Very glad I could be a part of PinBrew 2!! Can't wait for #3!!!

    #230 5 months ago

    I had a great time and reiterate all the positive comments that are made on this page and in previous posts. Keith and Marvin have put together a great show and I appreciate both of them taking the time to talk to Dave and I and our podcast: The Classic Pinball Podcast. We chronicle our adventures and experiences over the weekend. Please keep in mind it’s entertainment and that you need to listen to it in its entirety for context.

    So the dust has settled. PinBrew 2022 is in the books. So we sold a lot of beer. We played a lot of PinBall. Just for the numbers we sold over 2000 pints of beer. There were over 135 working pinball machines. Including some great new titles. We had multimorphic’s Weird Al, Cactus canyon, Alien, the Big Lebowski, Funhouse 2.0, along with so many other great titles. I need to tell all the people that came to the show how much Marvin and I appreciate you all being there. All the kind words were appreciated by us. I would like to especially think my family, Butch Peel Dave Downey, Tom Beezie, Jeffrey Dickson, John “Jitter” Tomsich, Juggs, The Flight Crew, The Food Peeps, The Breweries, Cointaker,Tilt, Outside edge, Project MKC ,Mark Salas, Eric and Arron. We will be tweaking and adjusting the show to make a better experience. I’m so glad you all had a good time. Next year will be bigger and better. Thank you all ! Cheers and Beers Keith

    If that friend is ever interested in selling, hit me up!

    Even though I do not do well on it, it played and looked fantastic. I noticed that even though the playfield had LEDs in the inserts, the back row GI were incandescent, keeping that "carnival feel" of light strings. Well done!

    #235 5 months ago

    Can’t wait til next year

    #236 5 months ago

    Really appreciated all your efforts! Many cool machines, great craft beers and food, spacious setting--BRAVO. Blake
