Beer Festivals Coming At You

Yes, it's fall (or it feels like it here) and that means freshly sharpened pencils, the end of the peaches, the appearance of the apples and -- beer festivals right and left, including the Big Daddy, the Great American Beer Festival in Denver, now just a month-and-change away. (Tickets are still available.)

Charlie Papazian has a nice list of guidelines for enjoying festivals without going nuts.

To his list I would add this: 1. pack a supply of throat lozenges (festivals are noisy; you're gonna be shouting) 2. carry some earplugs (see above)

See you in Denver!
