Goodness we had a great time tonight!!
The festival was half beer, half music and set in the most gorgeous mountains you could imagine about 40 minutes from Charlottesville.
This is why we moved here.
Also, local grass-fed beef on a festival menu!?
Also, hybrid dance jamming and hula hooping!
And coffee favors tossed from the bands to the audience!!
Our tickets came with 8 four-ounce beer taste samples. I think I had about 5 of them myself. Brews were good! My favorite was the Black IPA, a collaboration between four of Cville’s local breweries.
Our afternoon got better when we found Cara and Joe!
And made friends with their friends!
Afternoon nourishment came in the form of the most delicious kettle corn
And beer, of course
We had no idea if this festival would have funnel cakes or….. organic meat, but we decided to pack sandwiches just in case – and to save a few dollars!
Matt made us hummus and veggie sandwiches and they were the perfect fill for a 7PM dinner hour
With beer, of course
And a taste of mountain sunset
And then Dumpstaphunk donned the stage
Visiting from New Orleans, Andrew [who lives in NOLA] was THRILLED to hear they were in the line-up for the festival. We jammed for a few hours and ended the night with ringing ears (bring earplugs next time!!)
