2010 Evanston Brewfest

Just a reminder that tomorrow is the 2nd Annual Evanston Brewfest. Here's some basic info, if you wish to attend.

There are two different admissions: $25.00 – includes wristband, souvenir tasting mug (4 oz) and unlimited tasting or $5.00 (wristband) + $1.00 per token (each token is good for one taste) – for those that don’t want to drink a lot.

The Fest runs from Noon until 10:00 PM on Main Street in Downtown Evanston. Microbrews from Noon until 5:00 PM and then street party until 10:00 PM!

Here's a list of the participating breweries.

Bohemian Brewing Co.
Deschutes Brewing Co.

Snake River Brewing Co.
Suds Brothers Brewing Co.
Alaskan Brewing Co.
Big Sky Brewing Co.
Blue Moon Brewing Co.
Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.


Also, New beers in SLC today!
Check out Hop in the Dark from Descutes. This beer has subtle coffee undertones born from a blend of oats with dark, Munich and crystal malts. Classic IPA flavors and aromas are due to courageous additions of Cascade, Citra and Centennial hops.

Full Sail's Spotless is a true Northwest style IPA – richly hopped with Willamette and Zeus hops. A deep golden color, bright bitterness and a definite fruity finish.

Both are at the Bayou, Beerhive and some Liquor stores

Cheers!

Drinking a hop in the dark. Different and pretty damn tasty.

It's pretty yummy. Though I'd rake Moab's Black IPA over it in a heartbeat.

Or "take". Either way.
