3rd Annual Evanston Brew Fest

If Pioneer Day is not your thing and "Beer and Pie Day" festivities are too small, I have a great alternative for you.

The 3rd Annual Evanston Brew Fest is happening on Pioneer Day Weekend and will offer Utah's counter culture victims an opportunity to celebrate our own brand of Pioneers; Craft Brewers.

This is a great town to hold a beerfest. It's proximity to the Wasatch Front provides a quick & easy drive, the city has plenty of lodging, the town is full of bars and most importantly it doesn't have Utah's bullshit beer restrictions. You could actually get a high abv Utah beer on tap! Wahoo! Not to mention other great regional craft beers to sample. We'll keep you up to date on all the particulars, who's going to be pouring etc, but for now just mark Saturday, July 23, 2011 on your calendar.

The Fest runs from 1:00 pm until 10:00 PM on Main Street in Downtown Evanston. Microbrews from 1:00 - 6:00 pm and then street party until 10:00 PM!

Cheers!

I went last year and loved it, but I didn't notice any high ABV Utah beers available. Are any Utah brewers confirmed to be there and putting the good stuff on tap this time? Either way, I won't be missing it.

Where is the best place to stay? Looks like all the hotels are 50 miles out, which doesn't make sense to me... Ideas from those that have gone before?

Mikey said...

The best hotels are the ones that still have rooms. I know that's not much help but they do fill up fast.

I count seven hotels within a mile of the fest. Did you check all if them?

Hey guys, can't wait to see y'all here in E-town! I'll be playing music as one (human) half of the band "The Late Boomers" from 5 to 7PM, so stop by and say "howdy ho"!

@JB - I checked online and most of our hotels in town are showing availability. We have a Hampton, Days Inn, Howard Johnson, EconoLodge and Holiday Inn Express just to name a few so you certainly DON'T have to stay 50 miles out!

See ya Saturday :)
