Beer fests are cool and all, but why theyve become synonymous with Lets get fucking loaded, buddy, and embarrass the entire human race by acting like an ill-mannered ass clown is beyond our comprehension.
If youre looking for some fun times at a beer blowout minus the general douchelordery, hit up Bloomin Beerfest at Irish Cultural Center. The third annual festival of suds is a sophisticated celebration we dont expect anyone to piss his or her pants at this one that combines the fine old Irish tradition of Bloomsday with the fine new American tradition of a beer tasting. The shindig will also feature a 105th anniversary celebration of Leopold Bloom's fictional journey through the streets of Dublin in the James Joyce novel Ulysses.
