The first ever Summer’s Here Brewfest happened this past weekend at the North Idaho Fairgrounds in Coeur d Alene Idaho. I had the privilege of being a volunteer and getting to pour beer for the appreciative crowd.
Our side of the room was by far the most popular with Odell’s 90 Shilling and IPA, Ninkasi’s Total Dominiation and Radiant, and Elysian’s Immortal IPA and Men’s Room Red. Didn’t hurt that we may have been giving away some free tastes here and there to get more people to our booths.
The day was filled with music, food, and fun! “Nobody Famous” played the entire day (from 3pm to 8pm) and by the end of the evening they had people out dancing. With Ciao Mambo, Settler’s Creek, and Sidewalk Asian keeping everyone’s bellies full of good food there were some diehards that were there when the doors opened and didn’t leave until we were told to stop pouring.
I am really looking forward to next year and hopefully we can make it bigger and better!
