2011 CNY Brewfest

9 comments
So here I sit….recovering from Brewfest (of course!).  But man oh man, what a great time we had!  A little secret I didn’t let anyone in on, but this was the first Brewfest I’ve ever gone to where I wasn’t over weight.  I think that definitely made me enjoy myself more.  Plus, having this AWESOME new digital camera that Frankie surprised me with that morning helped too…

That’s right people…no more blog pictures from my phone!!  I had a digital camera before but it was one that needed a new battery about every 5 pictures and it was huge and the battery alone cost about the price of a camera LOL.  The camera Frankie got me is way better than the one I originally picked out.  Score!  Isnt he the best?!

I tried my best to try everything that you all recommended.  Considering how busy the Brewfest gets, I didn’t really to take pictures of EVERYTHING but I got a lot. 

I must say that this year, there were a lot of hits and very few misses as far as the brews went.  Usually theres a hand full of “yuck” beers but they were few and far between this year.  I learned a lot and found some really tasty treats. So without further ado, I present to you, the BrewFest in pictures…

On our way to Brewfest, I am excited like a little girl on Christmas morning!

And last but not least….the exciting news I was hoping that I could share, and I can!  As some of you know I had some email correspondence with the guys who created and put on the CNY Brewfest.  I actually got to meet them this year and it was quite an honor!  Even more of an honor was being able to introduce them to my grandfather.  A huge thanks goes out to Mick & Bill for taking the time to meet me, and for once again putting on a great Brewfest.  Here are some pictures of Mick(in the yellow shirt) and Bill(in the blue sweater)…
