From my unscientific study over the last few years, pretty good, I think, but it's hard to say because I haven't visited any new parks this summer, so who knows what has changed? The craft beer market is rapidly expanding everywhere.

I will say that by Chicago sports standards, I think the Cell is by far the best in terms of beer drinking options. Definitely way better than Wrigley. Better than the UC, IIRC. Probably better than Soldier Field, but I don't remember for sure because the last time I was there it was 0 degrees at kick-off and I wasn't in much of a beer drinking mood.

But yeah, this Craft Beer Fest is idiotic on every level and they deserve every laugh they get.
Comparing to SD is indeed not apples to apples. There are 60+ microbreweries in San Diego county, I believe 30+ within the city limits (but don't quote me on that). It truly is craft beer heaven out here.
I've been around the world and found that only stupid people are breeding.
