epiSUDS take7 – California Beer Festival July 16th 2011

Welcome to take 7 of epiSUDS! In this take we attend the California Beer Festival in Aptos, California. You’ll see we had a great time tried some really good beer and met a lot of interesting people. If you haven’t been to this event make sure you check it out next year and buy your tickets early and don’t arrive late.  http://www.californiabeerfestival.com/santacruz.html

 

 

 

 

 

The stand out beer for me at this event was the Anderson Valley’s Summer Solstice Ale. This was an amazing beer with great flavor and I would highly recommend trying it.

I was shocked that Bruvado Imports consistently had the longest line of all the tents we visited. Scott and his team did a great job getting everyone a refreshing Michelada before the end of the day. For those of you who dont know a Michelada is a Mexican cerveza prepared with beer, tomato juice (or Clamato), lime juice, and assorted sauces, spices, and pepper. 😉 http://www.bruvado.com/

Check out my interview with Scott and the other brewers above and let us know what you think.
