There were more than 400 beers and 30 casks at the Classic City Brew Fest. And lots of volunteers to pour them, including our very own Beer Dad!

They call it the Classic City, and it was time for a classic beer fest.

The 22nd Annual Classic City Brew Fest in Athens, that is.

Founder Owen Ogletree (of invited us to broadcast from the Athens, Georgia-based fest, and who are we to turn that down? Especially with over 400 beers to sample and 30 casks. Since we were in Athens, we took advantage of the situation by talking to local brewers.

First on the list was an update from Creature Comforts CEO Chris Herron. We talked about the progress of their new facility, their Get Comfortable campaign, the release of Cosmik Debris and their return trip to Jester King.

Next, Brian Roth from Southern Brewing Company joined us with what’s new with them. We talked about their trip to Hunahpu’s Day in Tampa, their Southern Woodpile series, and how amphoras create a unique flavor to their sour beers.

Of course, before we got into it, Nathan Schieber from Scofflaw Brewing crashed the party as well, but we expect that from those guys 🙂

Truck and Tap‘s Beers of the week?

All of them. Seriously, there were so many to choose from at the fest, we couldn’t just highlight one of them!
