Anderson Valley ROCKS!!!
Saturday, May 4, 2013 – Taps Open 1 pm to 5 pm – Marathon of Brews People!!!
Bringing Back the 80s! I wore my rainbow of colors shirt. I enjoyed checking out what others were wearing too!
1st Time & a Total Newbie! I enjoyed every minute of it though. I had a hard time deciding to taste from breweries that I was familiar with and those that were NEW! to me. I just dove in and went for it!
I loved seeing Barkley (mascot for Anderson Valley Brewing Company) march into the event! Barkley is an AWESOME looking bear with ROCKIN horns!!!
There was a person dressed as Duffman that was drawing a crowd too!
The pours were massive, at least for me! I either savored and enjoyed or took a few sips and moved on. I had to figure it out or be miserable. Certainly need to eat a few times throughout the event and DRINK PLENTY OF WATER!
You receive this landyard to hold your tasting device and let me tell you what happens when you drop your tasting device out of its holder. YOU GET BOO’D BIG TIME!!! I did it not once but twice and every time it is total humiliation. Plus you better know what you want to taste once it is your turn at the tap!
