This was our second time in attendance to this wonderful festival and we all had a great time and met a ton of awesome people. We went home with only about 2 kegs worth of beer, after having brought 5 of them. You people all drank too much of our beer, we need to have a talk…but after this beer.
We brought back our awesome make your own pretzel necklace station. It was a hoot watching all of you fumbling with the pretzels and string after a few beers. Remember this for next year, Tie a pretzel to one end of the string, then load from the other end. That way you won’t drop all the pretzels as a lot of people did.
Of course we had time to visit other tables during the festival and chat with the brewers there. There was an even larger showing of actual Rhode Island breweries this year than last year, proving the trend. We were stationed right next to Dave of Proclamation Ale Co. and that was dangerous. The zzzLumber was flowing at the Proclamation table and being good neighbors we had to partake at least a few times.
RIBS members who weren’t working the festival dropped by for their requisite samples and general chatting. They also went to other tables and gave us the skinny on which beers to try.
If you missed the Winter Brew Fest I highly recommend you try to make it to the summer one.
