A New Name and Focus for the Blues & Brews

A buddy of mine told me that Salt Lake City was cancelling the Blues and Brews Festival for this year. This made me want to cry. The B&B has been a cozy island of sanity in this somewhat insane state. As it turns out, my friend was half-right. The Blues and Brews Fest has long been the Gallavin Centers largest event of the year. Offering some of the finest beers from around the area. However, this year They're doing some revamping. The Blues and Brews is changing it's name to the Salt Lake City Brewers' Festival! The orginizers have completely revised the focus to "beer and just beer". There will still be music, vendor booths, etc, but this new event will be all about the beer. It's also possible that there will be a competition and brewer’s will be awarded medals in a variety of categories. The Salt lake City Brewers' Festival is on the calendar for Saturday, September 16 from 2 to 10 pm. Bravo! This the direction local beer enthusiasts have long encouraged. Slante mhath!
