Whether you’re a rookie or a seasoned professional, we could all use a little help preparing for your first or the next brew fest of the summer. We’re here to help. We are about to give you some great tips on how to prepare for your first brew fest.
Step #1: Bring a Bag
Trust me, this one has got to be at the top of your list. Typically, when you go to a brew fest you are going to get so much kick ass swag that you’ll want something to carry it in. Besides, you need your hands free to sample all of the beer! We suggest a drawstring bag or something lightweight.
Step #2: Wear Comfortable Shoes.
Yeah, we get it hot stuff, you want to look cute. But, if you don’t want your little piggies aching by the end of the day, you will want to wear some comfortable shoes. We’re not saying you have to strap on some Velcro trainers with arch support (although not a bad idea) but you may want to skip the high heels for this type of event.
Step #3: Pace Yourself
Look, we know that once you arrive you feel like a kid in a candy store. There are so many breweries and so many varieties that your heart starts racing and you start salivating like no other. However, pace yourself. This isn’t a race; this is a chance to familiarize yourself with new beer and varieties to widen your horizon. Besides, you don’t want to be the first one carried out.
Step #4: Deodorant
I can’t stress this enough. Brew fests happen right in the dead of summer and you will be sweating in places you didn’t realize you could sweat. Protect your dignity and your neighbors and wear deodorant. We are all going to be crowded around one another and you want to feel fresh and smell fresh. Use deodorant!
Step #5: Enjoy Your First Brew Fest
This step is the easiest. Just enjoy yourself. Meet new people, talk with brewers, dance to the music and toast to a great summer.
We hope that these tips help you prepare for your first brew fest. Don’t forget to grab your tickets to Amber Waves Brew Fest that is scheduled for August 17, 2019!
