Beer Fest Talk at SweetWater 420 Fest – Episode 70
The Beer Guys dusted off their Chacos and hit the SweetWater 420 Festival!
Since it’s one of the largest beer (and music and comedy) festivals in the state, we figured it was a good time to talk about beer fests. Specifically, some of the great ones in the southeast (and the country), and our opinions on what makes a great beer fest. Also, some tips for newbies on surviving one!
We broadcast from the mobile Airstream studios of 30A Radio, so we talked to Cory Davis about the beer scene in the Florida panhandle. Some great information for folks looking to travel south on vacation this summer.
Truck and Tap‘s Beers of the Week
At the SweetWater Experience tent, they really pulled out the stops. With 28 beers on tap – almost every one only available in limited amounts and usually at the brewery – we took advantage of it.
First, we sampled SweetWater’s Mexican Lager, a great easy drinker for beach, parties…or concerts!
But next, Tim and Aaron were able to introduce Cory to one of their favorite SweetWater beers, the Exodus Porter. And in no way should this serve as a plea for SweetWater to return this brew back into production…..
