beer 1338_1280x960.jpgI’ll be attending the Great Taste of the Midwest this weekend, which got me to thinking, what are some of your favorite beer festivals?

I can easily say that Great Taste is my favorite beer festival (of all the festivals I’ve been to) but I’ve also sang the praises of two local festivals as well.  For St. Louis beer festivals, I don’t think you can beat the Augusta Bottoms Beer Festival and Schlafly’s Hop in the City.

I think my enjoyment of those two festivals stems from the fact they’re both held in late summer when the temperatures have begun to drop a bit and you don’t feel like you’re going to die being in the sun all day drinking beer.

So, what are your favorite festivals?
