Music to Your Beers

It’s funny how drinking one ounce each of 100 beers is much more socially acceptable than drinking 100 ounces of one beer, especially in the daytime. That’s why beer festivals are such a blast: all the drinking with none of the judgment. And you may even learn a thing or two about brewing.

This weekend marks the triumphant return of the Big Red Pour International Craft Beer and Music Festival, going strong since 2008. The fest features over a hundred craft beers from breweries around the world plus beer experts, seminars, food and beer pairings, live jazz, and blues and rock performances.
