The Cincinnati Winter Beerfest with a heavy emphasis on winter. The snow was coming down anvils and pitchforks as I made my way to the convention center. I was wondering how it would affect the crowd as the lot was only about a quarter full.Turns out it may have scared people off as the placed never did get packed like I've seen it in other years. I always go for half beers to pace myself, and when a gentleman from 50West started explaining that I could get a hotel within walking distance I laughed and told him my condo was a shorter walk than all but two hotels.
Since most of the serious beer drinkers I toured with in previous years were sitting this year out I had to fend for myself and decided on a Stout tour. Every Stout under 7%. Because I wanted to be functional Saturday.
