Talk about the passion

This past weekend, we were involved in two festivals that make me proud to be in the beer biz. The first was a three day cask ale festival held at The Brazen Head bar in Brooklyn, NY. Brooklynite Alex Hall is the main reason this is the best cask fest in the NY/NJ/PA area. He is so passionate about real ale and truely understands how to handle and present these delicate beers.

The other event we attended was the Slow Food beer/food tasting at Triumph Brewpub in New Hope, PA. Slow food is one of my favorite organizations with extremely passionate members. The tasting included 12-13 local breweries along with many bakery, cheese, meat and seafood purveyers showcasing their creations. For those that don't know of Slow Food, it was founded in Italy in 1986 and aims to protect the biodiversity of agricultural and gastronomical cultures around the globe. It's membership is over 80,000 strong from over 100 countries. Find out more from http://www.slowfood.com.

These two events remind me once again that good beer is good food and an integral part of enjoying life and what it has to offer. And as for the folks devoted to its creation and enjoyment . . . "talk about the passion".
