Grand Valley Beer Festival, being held at the University Center,
at Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction.
Because it's only five blocks from our house, we were able to walk
(and as a result, not have to worry about having had a few too many to
drink). Lynn nor I aren't very big drinkers, but when we do drink beer,
we like to try local brews as well as beers from small breweries. The
Beer Festival was perfect for this as most, if not all of the 22 breweries
I counted were from Colorado. Each person received a small glass that
would be filled at each table you visited and you could try as many of
the brands as you liked. You could then vote on your favorite. I only
found a couple (I won't mention them) that I really didn't like at all.
Lynn and I both agreed that the "Red Monkey's Butt" from local Suds
and definitely had our fill. The venue was fun as well. I hope it's a
successful yearly event.
