This weekend I had the pleasure of attending Montezuma Land Conservancy’s Harvest Beer Festival and silent auction. Many local brewers were on hand to sample their wares, and $25 got you all the beer you could drink – not a bad deal! On offer at the silent auction were hiking packs, wine, forged iron door-knockers, cross-country skis, jewelry, gift certificates for massage and yoga, spurs, and a big bag of jalapenos – among many other delights.
My favorite beer was a black lager from… I don’t remember which brewery. The samples were generous, and it soon became hard to keep track of which beers I was trying. I enjoyed them all tremendously, despite not remembering which beer was from where!
A convivial atmosphere, a great band, a huge variety of delicious beer and plenty of unrestrained dancing were a lovely way to celebrate the waning summer.
