After sampling so many great beers at last year’s Collaboration Fest, I was a little sad that I wouldn’t be able to get a full pour any of them. I was grateful to have gotten to try them, but getting only a few ounces of something so amazing was a bit of a tease. So I am ecstatic that this year, many of the beers will be available in tap rooms, bars and/or restaurants after the festival! Check it out:

Beers featured at this year’s festival are:
