 So the experience at Brew City was very eventful, even though they don't brew their own beer, it was a pleasurable experience anyway. I also met a couple of guys there who appreciated good beers, (I guess, otherwise, they wouldn't have been there). They had never tasted a cask conditioned beer. Although, they said they have brewed beer when they were in college, I'm surprised they didn't know about cask beers. I introduced Chris and Tyler to the cask beers and consider it is my continuing mission to educate people about beer. I drank my 4 to their 1 and explained to them I was a trained professional, and to only try this at home. We had a good time talking and telling lies.

I finally left there about 11:30 and went back to the hotel. I crashed kind of early for being on a vacation. After the long flight, driving for 2 hours, and drinking beer until 11:30, I was beat.

I got up about 10 AM on Saturday morning and started preparing for the brewfest in Webster. It was only a 14 mile drive, but figured I would get an early start. I had a room rented for $95 a night. It had all the luxuries of an apartment. Kitchen, dining room, living room, big bathroom, and fair size bedroom. The festival was to start at 4 PM, so I had a few hours to kill. I went for a drive around the town of Webster, which took a whole 15 minutes. I stopped at a liquor store and bought a  pack of Magic Hat #9. figured I'd get a little pre-load before hand. I popped 3 of those great tasting beers and took a little walk down to the lake. It was a very peaceful and hot stroll. The temperature was still in the low 90's but it felt good to walk. At 4 PM i headed to the Indian Ranch where the festival was being held. There was a long line, but it was moving swiftly.
