|Sunday was nuts at SweetWater's bash!|
|Before: The homey Freddy Bensch aka "Big Kahuna" saying a 20-second speech at 4:20 p.m. before throwing handfuls of cake at everyone! You see where I was!|
|After: Freddy caked up! He came all the way upstairs to wipe some of that on us smart, clean folks who watched the whole thing from above! Thanks, Kahuna!|
Hey Fellow Craft Beer Sippers!
This past weekend was crazy, including a Cruisin’ For A Brewsin’ to Birmingham, Alabama to cover their burgeoning beer scene—they showed me hella love at Aloft Birmingham, J. Clyde, Good People Brewing, Cahaba Brewing, Trim Tab Brewing —and then driving straight to SweetWater’s 17th Anniversary on Sunday which was CRAZY!
Highlights included special casks, “Big Kahuna” Freddy Bensch throwing
handfuls of the custom sheet cakes at the hundreds of folks who surrounded him
in the lobby, and their new 17th
Anniversary Farmhouse Saison which was very impressive! It was so dope to meet up with all my homies in the beer biz, friends, the SweetWater staff, Xorbia's folks, and meeting cats who have only connected with me via Twitter (@alesharpton) and Instagram (@realalesharpton) prior to the bash.
