Last weekend we attended our second beer festival of the season, Big Lick Beertopia in Salem! Our parents, who are also well-versed in the art of beer drinking, (perhaps you remember them from these posts?) joined us. The pours were much larger than those at Rocktown, and we all ended up a bit sloshed. 😉 1/3 of a pint glass counted as one pour, and we bought two 20 pour tickets and two 10 pour tickets to split between the four of us. That’s a lot of beer, folks! Luckily, our sister Riley graciously agreed to be our DD. Some of our favorite beers of the day were the Hoppocalypse Imperial Red Ale by Apocalypse Ale Works, the Double D Double IPA by Fordham & Dominion Brewing Company, the Southern Tier Eurotrash Pilz, and the Woodchuck Summer Cider. Okay, okay, the Sumer Cider was one of Mom and Rachel’s favorites. Here are a few scenes from our splendid day!

First up, Stone’s Belgian IPA! Mom started with a Starr Hill Love.IMG_2427Either the Blue Mountain Lager or the Sunken City Dam Lager….IMG_2441Nothing compliments an engagement ring like a Blonde Hunny!IMG_2443We decided to get Blonde Hunnies of our own.IMG_2491

  1. I need to know where Rachel’s dress is from – it is so cute! (Is it ok to ask about fashion on a beer blog?)
