I’ve been invited to this years Organic Beer Fest so huzza! Let’s take a look…
First thought: hey, a mushroom beer!
Second thought: huh, the rest of these styles don’t really lean towards the experimental side. But that’s OK! Organic beers tend to have a tougher row to hoe in my experience, because “organic” is sometimes valued over “tasty” and can frequently mean “experimental weirdness”.
While that has been changing, I think it’s a positive sign that many of the beers are straightforward in style (at least, it seems like that from my browsing) because that’s how you hook people: with something that is just as good as the regular stuff, just different.
Once you have the basics down, then you can let ambition kick in.
I am hoping to be there the 26th, with a post up later that day on what I had.
