Beerfest

If you follow me on Instagram, you know I have a thing for craft beer and love to discover new brands (I’m an IPA fan, specifically).  This weekend, I had a little fun at the Atlanta Winter Beerfest.  Normally, beer festivals are pretty predictable:  numerous tents, brand banners, and of course, swarms of craft beer fanatics sampling to their heart’s content.

The location was a little different this time.  There’s a old mill near downtown Atlanta that was turned into a music venue well before I was old enough to attend concerts (The Masquerade).  Between the bands playing on all three floors and the ceiling beams, it makes for a pretty unique backdrop!

Another thing you don’t see at most beer festivals?  A guy drawing drunks.  The faces they make, however – yeah, you usually see a lot of that.

Afterward, I ran into some old friends and went to see a jam band at the Tabernacle (another great Atlanta music venue).  Judging from the amount of spilled popcorn, we all had a good time dancing.

It was nice to have a little fun for an afternoon and discover a few more local brews.  I have plans to do an art project soon involving some of my favorite brands, so now I have a few more six packs to pick up.  Oh, and don’t forget that tomorrow is another update for Dueling DIY (I haven’t heard much from Kit over the weekend, so I can only assume she’s being super sneaky and will have made some stunning progress).  Cheers!
