Happy International Beer Day! I mean, sure, it just looks like another day to have a beer but…
With the OBF in the rearview mirror, the North American Organic Brewer’s Fest is fast coming up. And…they gave me a pass to it. I am clearly playing the long con to be considered a “reputable” source on matters beer.
After looking over the lineup of beers, I have to say my feelings approach cautious optimism at best. I’m just not a fan of CDAs, black lagers don’t do it for me very often and as always during a summer festival, there are a whole lot of fruit beers. Fruit beers are always challenging to do well. When they’re good, they’re very good but they are very good with great rarity.
I see quite a bit more ciders than I remember, though so there might be some interesting drinks in that area and there are a few breweries like Coin Toss or Vagabond that I’m not very familiar with. I won’t be going until Saturday though, so the review will have to take place after the fact. Still: let’s see what they got!
