Saturday is the 10th annual Midwest Beerfest, and I’m looking forward to it for a couple of reasons.
One is that I like beer. Not as much as wine, mind you, but I like it.
Two is that I’m helping to judge a new feature at the festival — a chicken wing contest. And I don’t like chicken wings. I LOVE them.
A couple of other exciting things about this year’s festival: A bunch of beers from Lawrence’s Free State Brewing Company will be available for sample, and starting Monday, they’ll be available for purchase in Wichita, too.
Also, the beer expert at Goebel Liquor has selected about 150 unique beers that wouldn’t otherwise make the festival, and he’ll be set up in a special area. Among his options: A bunch of fruity beers that he’s labeled “girls only.”
