2013 Cask Fest


It has probably been a year now since I started taking my blog a little more seriously and I can trace that moment back to last year’s Cask Fest. And so it’s about that time of year when another Cask Fest rolled around, this past Saturday on May 4th in fact! This year was even bigger and better than the last. There were 30+ beers, and with only 12 tokens, my friends and I were tasting each other’s beers to get the largest tasting we could. I would have to say my favorite was the sour from Arbor Brewing Company, Sodibo. Brewery Vivant’s Big Red Coq was also delicious. Though what I spent my extra coins on ended up being Blue Point’s Hoptical Illusion. I wish Arcadia had brought another firkin of Cereal Killer; that stuff was amazingly delicious and alcoholic.

Ashley’s Lobsterfest

There are only 10 more days left in June! It’s crazy how fast this month has gone by. I am moving to a new residence on July 1st. Luckily, or unluckily if you look at it that way, my apartment lease overlaps with the new place so I’ll be less pressured to move out in a short amount of time. The unfortunate part being that I have to pay both rents at once, but I think I’ll survive. Though if any of my friends are reading this, don’t expect me to be going out and partying with you guys anytime soon. I was actually talking to Dante about it last night, I think we’ll be having more cook-ins or -outs as you see fit and instead of going out and spending a ton of money consider coming and bringing a dish or helping to create a dish. It’ll be fun!

There actually isn’t too much to say in this post, as all that we did was hang out, eat delicious lobster, drink beer, and hang out with the Allies so enjoy the pictures!
