Default Booneville Beer Festival

I just got back from three rainy days up at the Booneville Beer Fest in Anderson Valley. It was an absolute blast getting to taste and chat with all of the brewers from 80 different breweries. A ton of fun. Did anyone else get a chance to go?

Not this year, but I've been there before. First year, I parked the RV near the brewery only to find out later that only brewers were allowed overnight. When security came by, I was in no shape to move it. Unlimited tasting is dangerous.

There is no amount of caution that I can say about that. I began friday night about 6pm and didn't stop until sunday morning. i am still hung over. Had a blast though so...

I'm jealous...sounds like a great time, and booneville is one of my favorite places to visit when I'm over on the coast. Ah well, I'll just have to wait for the chico brew fest! Only a month to go...
