A week into October and you will be hearing beer festivals as autumn marks the shift to spicier flavors and darker colors. You will still get a lot of ales, stouts, and lagers but do not count out the pumpkin, the favorite food for this month. We have a short list of some October festivals where you can enjoy a lot of beer and a lot of pumpkin:
Charlie Brown Great Pumpkin Beer Festival in Philadelphia
This festival actually kicked off yesterday and you might have to cancel some plans over the weekend if you want to catch the celebrations. This festival started this year with a pumpkin brunch at The Institute where around fifty seasonal beers will make their way to the tables.
Great Pumpkin Beer Festival in Seattle
Spring and the warm weather bring the festivals outdoors this April and guarantees a good time. Here are some of the best festivals this month for some dose of good food and drinks:
Dairy State Cheese and Beer Festival in Kenosha, Wisconsin
Come April 21, people will head to Kenosha in Wisconsin for the annual Dairy State Cheese and Beer Festival for some good cold beer and great cheese. The ticket will cost you around $40 and will give you access to a lot of samples from the best brewers and cheese producers in the state. The biggest local brewers will be present and there will be a good opportunity to sample yummy sausages at The Brat Shop.
Spam Jam Waikiki in Honolulu, Hawaii
Aside from the recent Super Bowl (congratulations to the New York Giants!) and Valentine’s Day next week, February does not have a lot going on. For those experiencing the cold weather right now it is pretty nice to head to warmer destinations or maybe enjoy an old, fun tradition – drinking.
Here are some of the beer festivals you can go to this month:
Cincy Winter Beer Festival
The kegs, mugs, glasses and other paraphernalia to enjoy the cold beer are ready. In fact this wal inter beer festival happens today and on 11 February. Tickets are for around $35 with a souvenir cup functional enough to hold five ounces of beer. You can refill this with the brewed drink for twenty five times. Make sure you pace your drinking since things kick off at 730pm and will last thru 10pm.
