Episode 37: Capital City Beer Fest

Ep37-ThumbLive at the 17th Annual Capital City Invitational Beer Fest

In this special edition of Beer Busters, we set up at the 17th Annual Capital City Invitational Beer Fest at Appalachian Brewing Company. The event featured dozens of breweries and upwards of 70 beers poured. We were fortunate enough to speak with attendees and people from breweries such as Appalachian Brewing Company, Tröegs, Market Cross Pub, Old Forge Brewing, Dog Tag Brewing, Blue Canoe Brewery, ReHAB, Ruhlman Brewery, and Marzoni’s Brick Oven & Brewing Company. Lots of fun was had, lots of German food was eaten, and even more beers were consumed. Cheers!

Many thanks to Mike Parker and Appalachian Brewing Company for inviting us to record at this awesome event!
