Hundreds of beer lovers gathered at the Providence Convention Center last weekend to celebrate the Great International Beer Fest. It may have been a smaller showcase than some other events I have attended in the past, but there were still plenty of quality brews to choose from. Harpoon, Samuel Adams, Old Burnside, Berkshire, Brooklyn, and many more of my favorite breweries were giving out samples of their most popular seasonal varieties. Our favorite beer of the night turned out to be Fuller’s London Pride which was sweet, malty, and clean (and I just want to point out that I usually dislike Pale Ales!). A close runner-up was Samuel Adams’ Longshot Derf’s Secret Alt which I found to be pretty complex. I might have to buy their Longshot variety pack to try this one again!
In case you missed it last weekend, below we have uploaded a fun, short video as we “snaked” our way through the crowd. We had a great time at this year’s event and we are definitely looking forward to the Fall event which we heard is even bigger and better!
Until then, CHEERS!!!
