I had the opportunity to attend the 15th annual New England Brewfest which was held at Loon Mountain Resort on June 22. This was my first time going to this type of event and I can confirm that “beer is good for what ales you.” Non-drinkers attended, too, and had access to bottles of water, live music and good food which included a BBQ food truck, wood fired pizza, and a cajun/creole food truck. While everyone looked like they were having a great time, it was a very peaceful crowd with the hum of good conversation and eager expectation of what the next beer sample will taste like. The beer tasting shot glass held approximately three ounces of delicious nectar. So even if one consumed 12 “glasses,” that would equate to approximately 3 beers at most throughout the course of the day. Do you like my pretzel necklace by the way? That is the “fashion” part of my post (ha!).
It was a gorgeous day for the event; in the 70’s, sunny, and there was a refreshing breeze.
A little Pig’s Ear Brown Ale anyone? Brewed by the Woodstock Inn Brewery, this beer is tart, medium bodied with hints of caramel, sweet chocolate and roasted malts.
This was one of my favorite beers: Springdale’s “But I Digress” New England IPA. It is fruity with a hint of pineapple, peach, and orange with floral and spicy notes. I thought it was smooth and delicious.
Speaking of digressing, here is a pic of the sunset that my husband took on July 2. It’s breathtaking and is what the locals in my town call the “the overlook.”
This post is short and sweet but please stay tuned as I am on top of the world next.
