Had no real plans to stop by this event but hunger drew us in.  Having just went to a Motorcycle Show & Shine, then a Custom Car show we sort of worked up an appetite.

Geographically there was not much around but I remembered about the Craft Beer Festival that a few of my friends had talked about.

  • It was downtown.
  • It had beer.
  • It had food.
  • It had an admission.

At the gate I mentioned I was writing for a Lifestyle blog.   The doors swung open for us.  Excellent.

Once we walked in it was that clear that we made the right choice.

The first thing I tried was the Taco Pie from the Itty Bitty Pie ladies. Holy crap. Amazing.  Beef. Beans. Cheese. Pie crust!

After that I ran into a friend of mine, the local Crepe Master Thierry.  He runs the Paris Crepes Cafe.  Delish.

     

BBQ Time!

Off to the Works to get one of their amazing burgers.   I had the Kamikaze. For those that do not know about it – Jalapeño, chipotle & banana peppers, cheddar cheese & hotter than hell sauce!

Oh, right, they had beer too! Sorry got on a food tangent.

My personal favorite brewery  was there.  Mill Street.  I love Mill Street Organic. Great beer.

The guys from the Nini Panini Factory were in the house as well with these sweet bbq skewers.

One of my favorite food trucks was there too, sorry am I back on food again?

El Gastronomo Vagabundo.  Very happy to see these folks doing so well. They really helped the food truckers in the  area get recognized and respected. Cheers to them.  Find them on Twitter.

Next year, if it does come back, I will make a point of adding this event to my calendar.  Some great bands played but sadly I went on the last day in the middle of the afternoon. My bad.
