719 Day Brewfest 2016 Photo Recap

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:

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.
