We know, you might be thinking…didn’t this event get rained out? We showed up early and snapped some pictures of the breweries set up for the 719 Day Brewfest before the lightning drove everyone from the stadium. Rained out or not, John Eddy and his team have gone beyond the extra mile to make sure those who purchased a ticket to the 719 Day Brewfest got their money’s worth.
Ticket holders were today provided an envelope with a ticket valid to go to any brewery on the list for 7/28, and another ticket valid for 8/4. They also included a buy-one-get-one voucher that is good for a free draft craft beer at any one of the 11 taprooms and one distillery tasting room on the brewery list.
The ‘Best Beard’ contest to be held during the festival has moved online and can be entered here: woobox.com/dzhzpz
Cockpit Craft Distillery was the lone distillery at the festival; offering samples.
Iron Bird was on hand offering a pair of beers.
Triple S was on hand with a trio of beers, and featuring the new Kilo 94.3 pint glass that will be available on Friday, July 29th at the brewery.
Fossil Craft Beer decked their booth out with swag.
Local Relic was pouring a handful of beers. We did manage to sample a couple that were excellent before the storm rolled in.
Jak’s Brewing had a few beers to pour, and we found Travis Fields from Fieldhouse Brewing in their tent, which was right next door to his.
People were lined up for the VIP session before 5pm. They got only a few minutes of samples before the facility had to be evacuated.
Nano108 had 6 beers on tap. Keith always brings a great selection to festivals, and this was no exception
You can see the clouds starting to roll in as we snapped this photo of the commemorative glass. It was mere minutes after this that the venue was evacuated.
