I had every intention of being a lazy sack this weekend but we all know things don't ever go as planned. Instead of loafing around the house with Bodie, my best friend kidnapped me to attend the local beer and music festival going on in town Saturday.
Katie and I were some of the last few folks let in the gate since so many advanced tickets were sold but I'm glad we got in because there were over 30 breweries offering their delicious beer samples. Needless to say, anytime booze is factored into the equation, you can expect masses of people.
See what I mean? Masses of people. And this is only a quarter of the festival area. I'm pretty sure there were over 3000 folks in attendance and it seemed like half of them were in the line for the restrooms. You would think with thousands of people, the organizers would have put up more than four port-o-potties. Nope. Four was it and of course, with my luck, I wasn't surprised to see that the line for my favorite beer was also 20 deep.
Crispin hard apple cider was featuring their pear flavor this weekend and it was delicious. Perfectly smooth and bubbly. I always lean towards sweet, white wines and this reminded me of a crisp riesling. Am I allowed to compare beer to wine? Well, I just did and it must have been pretty popular because they ran out a few hours after the event started.
Gratuitous group shot. Our friend Bridget, my BFF Katie and myself. .
That picture was obviously taken before I had my fourth beer. Turns out one should not go to a beer festival on an empty stomach. I'm such a lightweight, I totally should have known better. This, in turn, meant that I slept in until 9 Sunday morning, giving me just enough time to get dressed and ready for our Easter church service. Afterwards, we headed over to my in-laws to have dinner and hunt Easter eggs. I was pretty excited when I found out the adults were allowed to join in on the fun and was doubly excited when I found the only golden egg with twenty bucks inside. Winning? Oh yeah. And by the end of the day, the hubs and I collected enough candy to rival Willy Wonka.
My teeth hurt.
How was your weekend?
