Standing in a crowded room of 100 plus people, you cannot fail to notice that everyone is having a great time - smiling, laughing, socializing, eating some delicious food - but most importantly, drinking some really great beer made to be enjoyed by some great breweries that care about what they create.

Second, seeing all the new breweries in our local community makes me feel like a beer renaissance is upon us and the diversity these companies bring us will lead to new ideas, tastes, and presentations and I can't wait to see what comes from each one of them in the near future.


A su salud!!!
