Brewfest this Weekend and a Big Birthday

Just a reminder that the Third Annual Evanston Brew Fest is going on this weekend (7/23/11). The ticket price of $25.00 will include wristband for unlimited brew tasting and souvenir tasting mug. Brew tasting 1:00 p.m.-6:00 p.m.

It looks like a fine list of participating breweries. Definitely looks like it's worth the drive.

Alaskan
Avery
Blue Moon
Big Sky
Bohemian
Boulevard
Deschutes
Epic
Grand Teton
New Belgium
Odells
Oskar Blues
Shades of Pale
Sierra Nevada
Snake River
Suds Bros.

By the way, it was 25 years ago today the beer scene in Utah got....well it got one! The Wasatch Brewpub came into existence in Park City, Utah. Reinvigorating a population that was starved for something other than fizzy yellow beer. Thanks, Greg and the Wasatch crew - past and present for changing all of our lives!

Cheers!

Has anyone been to this before? Just wondering if you have to buy tickets ahead of time or if you can just show up and pay to get in.

I thought I recognized you! I work there and I meant to say hi and introduce myself before you left. Glad you had a good time - come see us again!

You can buy a wristband when you get there. They're not limiting the number sold, according to the event's Facebook page.

Mikey,
Thanks for the kind thoughts concerning our 25th anniversery. It has been quite a ride.
