On February 27th we were fortunate to be invited to Legend Brewery’s 17th Anniversary bash in Richmond, VA. Legend is one of my favorite local breweries – great food, amazing beer and an incredibly hospitable team of folks who truly love making great beer – what more could you ask for?
When spending time in Richmond, I have a few recommendations. Stay at the Crowne Plaza on Canal Street. Lovely rooms, great service and a short shuttle ride away from anywhere you might want to go.
The Festy crowd basks in the musical glow over Columbus Day weekend.
“Let’s just go tonight,” Neighbor chirped over the phone.
I cringed. This was totally against my plans to be an old lady. It was Friday afternoon and I had just gotten home from work. I was thinking sweatpants, some light cross stitching, a glass of wine, and a geeky sci fi show that I don’t like to admit that I watch. Neighbor’s plans were for the two of us to quickly pack up my Subaru with a tent and sleeping bags, make a pit stop for gas and Cheez-its and drive to Nelson County for the first ever Festy Experience, a two day music and beer concert at Devil’s Backbone Brewery.
On July 15th, I was lucky enough to attend ‘Brew at the Zoo’ with my fabulous cohort, Beth “BYOBates”. She scored last minute tickets to the sold out event and I was just happy that it was scheduled on a Thursday. Darn weekend job, pfft. The event was touted as a “Young Professionals Beer Tasting Event” and was sponsored by the Friends of the National Zoo.
