Photos: Spring Craft Beer Festival
Anyone who knows me well can tell you that on most days, I’ll choose a pint of craft beer over a glass of wine or a fruity frozen drink (though I am a fan of Mojitos and Caipirinhas). This past Saturday, I spent my afternoon at the 2nd Annual Spring Craft Beer Festival in Mt. Holly, NJ brought to you by the High Street Grill. It was a beautiful, sunny, warm Saturday afternoon – a great day for a beer festival and an enjoyable time.
There was live music, food available for purchase and of course – lots of beer to try. I probably tried about 15 or so beers – and probably didn’t get to half of what was available. Being my first beer festival, during the first half, I probably made the mistake of drinking the every last drop of the each sample I received. Two hours later, there was so much more I would have wanted to try, but I was so full – no more beer fit. Oh well – next time! Here are a few of the beers I tried, in case you’re up for trying something new – and if I remember, I’ll list the specific beer (for some odd reason, I don’t remember names, just the descriptions I was given of the beers, so I tried to match that as best I could – but if I’m wrong forgive me). Does anyone out there have a copy of the beer list – I saw a few people with them, but didn’t know where to grab one (or maybe they were out when I came in)?
Anderson Valley Brewery – Boont Amber Ale
Anderson Valley Brewery – Summer Solstice Cerveza Crema
Heavy Seas – Loose Canon IPA
Southampton – Double White Ale
Long Trail – Belgian White
Terrapin – their IPA?
Weyerbacher – either the Double Simcoe IPA or Hops Infusion; it was definitely for the hopheads.
Troegs – I want to say it was the Sunshine Pils
Yards – Philadelphia Pale Ale
Stone – Cali-Belgique IPA
Slyfox – Dunkel Lager
Allagash – White
I figured that during this event, I would take a few pictures – since photography is something I haven’t been doing enough of lately and I can definitely use the practice. All photos were taken with my Sigma 30mm f/1.4 lens on a Canon Rebel XTi. I also determined that event photography is kind of fun. Anyone need an event photographed!? Will work for beer. LOL.
