Episode 70: Capital City Invitational Beer Festival

The 18th Annual Capital City Invitational Beer Festival at Appalachian Brewing Company

Returning once again to the stage at the Abbey Bar at Appalachian Brewing in Harrisburg, we set up shop at the 18th Capital City Invitational Beer Fest to sample the amazing array of local brews and chat with the brewers, owners, reps and others pouring their quaffs. Some old friends returned to the mic and we met some new ones as well. Kicking things off were Artie Tafoya, Director of Operations, and Adam Cole, Head Brewer for Appalachian. Then we ran down the line and enjoyed the plethora of good beer and good people.

Be sure to check out our previous appearances at ABC: Last year’s Capital City Fest and the Little Big Beer Fest during Harrisburg Beer Week.
