As a volunteer for this event and a strong supporter, it was so exciting to see so many familiar and unfamiliar faces. As I walked around with my camera for 7 hours, it was easy to get everyone to smile!

There is no surprise why everyone was smiling… BEER! There is something so great about bringing together 1000 plus people to enjoy the south lands greatest Craft Breweries and Home Brewers.

It is no secret, or at least it is not now, that I LOVE BEER. I give credit to my husband for introducing me to all the fabulous fermented flavors. I am a huge sucker for sours and will fall weak to just about anyone who brings me a bottle! 😉
