Fat Head's IPA Fest 2012 Info and Giveaway

On a blog related note, I know I have taken a good while off rating beers. Honestly, I got tired of rating and just felt like enjoying a beer without having to take notes and write it up.  My plan going forward is simple, I plan to write up 1-2 beer reviews a month.  I want to balance my reviews between beers that are available locally and beers that are not sold in Ohio that you should look for/try to trade for.   If you have suggestions for local beers you'd like me to review, feel free to email, tweet, or facebook me what beer you'd like me to review. Cheers

Now...On to Fat Head's IPA Fest on October 6th!
Tickets are currently on sale now for $30 in advance and for $35 at the door.

Your ticket includes: Event Entry, 5oz Souvenir Tasting Glass, 15 sample tickets and Live Music.  During the event you will have a chance to vote for People’s Choice award while certified beer judges will determine who gets the Gold Medals for Best IPA, Best Imperial/Double IPA, and Best In Show.   There will also be T-shirts, and Food available at an additional cost.
