Beer, Bourbon and BBQ Fest 2018. Come if you can.

That's the info.

Willies and I have procured tickets. Well technically Willies got the tickets. I got the rooms for the first night. But as it should be.. it's a two day 10 total hours of unlimited samples. Food costs but damn. This is the best value in booze fests.

We nearly killed a guy I work with last year. Two weeks after this event the issue in his liver, cancer, was exacerbated by this booze fest. If he hadn't tried to run with the big dogs this condition may have lied dormant till it was too late.

This fest may have saved his life.

Remember this is a marathon not a sprint.

I got those Viking horns last year at the Fest.

This year will be fez headgear sporting a familiar logo.

Here goes. I didn't get a lot of pic as I was too busy enjoying myself.

Local goodies. Not bourbon but tasty as hell.

Pausing for a cigar break. Hand rolled at a joint in Baltimore.

My boss won the stein holding competition.

Excellent beer from a great brewery.

A little Screwball country beer.

The whiskey I remebered to take pictures of.

Nothing like a hoodie with a giant ass picture of yourself on it.

Image

The stumble home the first night.

Image

The hotel bar was fucking closed by the time we staggered home. So we took the party to the laundry room.

Badass! Loving the photo narration. Looks like time well spent.

I miss the Flying Dog Double Dog. Doesn't seem to be around anymore.

Closest thing I could compare it to would be an unaged apple brandy. A smokey unaged apple brandy.

There are some pics, like the big slabs of bacon-on-a-stick. Also, a whole smoked pig.
