Whew... if you made it all the way down here, you must really love beer!

I know — I wish they provided the IBU numbers as well... but in all fairness, this is a really long list to compile! The food and beer items all look really promising, and there's even some whiskey and wine info floating around out there... we'll investigate further and let you know what we find out. One thing's for sure, more festivals is a good thing! We hope to see you there!
