The Downtown Brew

Were you at The Downtown Brew this weekend in Orlando? I'm going to guess that you probably weren't. Why? Because even with being told about it, it was near impossible to find. Unless you happened to be a member of the website ChurchStreetDistrict.Com. Which I also didn't know existed until I heard about the downtown brew.

Even with the lack of publicity, the event was a blast. 40 different beers, and several food vendors made this event worth every penny. It may have even been better than the Philly beer fest. Again, why? Because it was at least 40 degrees warmer. And I'm not exaggerating. The weather was gorgeous, and the beer was flowing. The free food was a nice addition as well.

Standouts from the event? I was very happy Goose Island was there. They may be one of my new favorite breweries. Love the tap handles also. Murphy's was at the show with a Red Ale that was fantastic. I hadn't ever heard of anything but their stout. Budweiser managed to make the list of Breweries, and they were giving out their Lime-A-Rita. The girls were cute, but their beer was disgusting. It would have been a lot better with a lot of Tequila added to it.

I've managed to go years without going to a craft beer fest. In the past 2 weeks I've gone to two. Extrapolating the data will make this a very good year.
