Augusta Bottoms Beer Fest
We're back from the Augusta Bottoms Beer Festival. A slightly chilly but successful event in gorgeous Augusta, MO. The event is hosted by the gracious crew at Augusta Brewing and the proceeds went to H.I.S. K.I.D.S, a group that supports families dealing with childhood cancer.
For those who were there, we appreciate everyone's positive comments. The best compliment, of course, is returning with empty kegs!
We were pouring Oktoberfest, Indian Brown Ale, Pumpkin Ale, a cask of APA dry-hopped with simcoe hops and we were also pouring what may have been the final few pints of American IPA. The pumpkin disappeared first followed closely by the IPA.
It's always good to meet with our fellow Missouri brewers and share some pints with Missouri beer fans.
Mark your calendar for next year. We'll be there, will you?
