My trip to the 1st Annual Capital Region Craft Brewers Festival held July 24, 2010 at the Joe Bruno Stadium in Troy, New York. This beer fest was put on by Brown's Brewing Co., a local microbrewery that I've visited a few times on Chad'z Beer Reviews. Although not quite as big as TAP NY, the CRCBF was still a lot of fun! It was well organized. There were no long lines or rowdy people.
It was very hot, though! The temperature was in the high 80s with the heat index in the mid-90s! It was so hot we were sweating off the alcohol faster than we could drink it. I've never drank so much beer and been so disproportionately intoxicated in my life!
I went with my friend Chad B., who is a homebrewer and appeared in two episodes of Chad'z Beer Reviews back in April. We reviewed one beer from each brewery and usually tried the same beer each so you got two different perspectives on it.
Thanks to my friend Kristin for being the designated driver AND the designated cameragirl ;)
I can't wait for next year!
