Tacoma Craft Beer Fest - Are you ready?


A pictorial recap of...
 
Tacoma Craft Beer Fest
2011

They came in long buses, taxis and cars.
They came from their homes, the shopping mall, bars!


They came alone and in groups, to have a wee taste.
They came in great haste; all to taste, taste, taste, TASTE!


For TCBF offered the loveliest of times!
Afterall, it inspired MGD to bust out some rhymes.

PL Disclaimer: Pictorial commentary below provided by the Real MGD...

 Seven Seas brought their Rude Parrot once again, often seen at TCBF garnished with a hop flower! Mike also brought temp tats, which you know the PL can't resist.


As you can tell from the photos, the weather was superb. If Sean Jackson's (Engine House #9) smile is a factor, it'll be sunny and warm again this year.
 
TRH's Chris Miller seemed to be having a grand time also!
  
The PL always seems to end up sailing the Schooner Exact, hmmm...
 
TCBF Co-organizer Roxi and the PL make a Kenny Zee Beerman sammy
The Park Way Tavern plied their wares (and more temporary tats!) as an event sponsor
Beer Bloggers Union meeting, with guest speaker Mike Runion
 

With plenty of grass to sit on and space to cavort, the location was a big improvement over 2010. TCBF 2012 is in the same location
The day ended too soon for most festival-goers, most likely due to an underestimation of Tacoma's ability to drink lots of craft beer!
But the party continued for Colin and other hard core hopheads at our home-away-from-home!

 
 
 
 
 


You can see with your eyes,
all the fun had last year.

From beginning to end,
folks were full of good cheer!

Won't you join us again
for some fun, sun and beer?

Beer, beer, beer, BEER!

 Round 4 of the Tacoma Craft Beer Festival will surely not disappoint so ya best come on down and join the festivities!
