Once upon a time, in the not so distant past, I actually rather enjoyed going to a Beer Fest or two every year.
That’s over now, as I’m suffering from #BeerFestFatigue.
I know there are others out there with the same condition, although it’s not talked about much.
Nowadays, there’s a different beer fest every week around here, and it’s just overkill.
Yeah, beer is great and all, but what do you REALLY get out of a fest?
Drunk, yes, you get drunk.
That’s a given.
The entire point is to try new beer, but how much do you even remember about certain ones you’ve tasted, lets say after hour 2 that you’re there?
Exactly. Not much.
Sure, you could just “taste” each pour and then dump after a small sip, but that’s just alcohol abuse.
The concept is great and all, and I’ve definitely been to my fair share of events, but I’m pretty much done.
The fests are overcrowded.
The bathroom lines are ridiculously long.
Most events don’t have rinse stations, which is stupid, in my opinion. (Yeah, I’ve used a bottle of water to rinse, but that gets annoying after awhile.)
I’ll just take a step back, enjoy new beer at home, and let y’all attend the fests in my honor.
