On Saturday afternoon we departed the beautiful Inn at Court Square and headed to the Top of the Hops Beer Fest in downtown Charlottesville. Festival-goers were lined up halfway down the mall, but thanks to our very important friend Keno, we skipped the line and were some of the first people in the pavilion!
We’ll be honest, peeps, from the cider garden, to the VIP tent, to the unlimited tastings, to the glass of wine we had with lunch (it was complimentary, no judgement) things got sloppy pretty quickly. Sometimes we talk your ear off about every little detail of the beers we try, but today we’re just going to share our pictures and what we remember of the festival…
Boxcarr Pumpkin Porter, we have anxiously awaited your arrival
Blonde Hunny Cheers say what??
Maddy’s new favorite beer, the Goose Island Bourbon County Stout (enjoyed in the VIP area, no less).
Hardywood Bourbon DIPA…yeah, it’s as good as it sounds
Enjoying the afternoon sun and the Will Overman Band
