The 2015 beerfest season has come to a close, so it's clearly time to start planning for 2016. Personally, I've already got plans in place for two festivals:
Pittsburgh Brew N Chew 2016
June 18, 2016
This one made #4 on our 2015 Beer in Review, so you know it's good. I'll be sipping beers and nibbling snacks alongside Dr. Wife and the mysterious J.
You can buy tickets here, but only if you're interested in good beer, tasty snacks, and a good time.
The 3rd Annual Pittsburgh Winter Beerfest
February 26 and 27, 2016Although it didn't make the 2015 Beer in Review, this festival is a lot of fun. On one hand, this festival can get a little crowded and is quite popular among the "Woohoo! Let's get drunk!" fraternity. On the other hand, the sheer quantity of fine beer available goes a long way toward hampering the crowd's effect. Especially if you spring for the connoisseurs' ticket (a worthwhile investment, I assure you).
I'll be pouring beers in the connoisseurs' room both nights (along with Dr. Wife and J, of course).
If you love beer more than you dislike crowds, get yourself a ticket here.
Of course, this is just the start. Between attending festivals and volunteering to pour, we're going to maintain our reputation as "The Deadheads of Beerfests."
