Good Morning and Happy Monday! I had a super fabulous weekend and it was lots of fun. I attended the Beer Bourbon BBQ Festival on Saturday with my two sisters at the National Harbor in Maryland. Upon arrival I was a little overwhelmed at first because there were sooooo many tents and I wasn’t sure where to start; but I was immediately greeted by one of the tent volunteers and I just jumped right in on the fun.
I don’t think I’ve seen an event this big in a while. There were plenty of choices to choose from bourbon, whisky, cider, craft beers, BBQ, as well as other cuisines. We tasted for about an hour when we first got there and decided that we should try out the food. My sister and I decided to get two different options so we could split it. I got the beef brisket and my sister got the pulled pork; our sides included macaroni & cheese, cole slaw, and baked beans. The food was absolutely delicious! I was definitely pleased and there was so many options.
After grabbing some lunch we hung out near the stage and danced to the tunes of the cover band. It was a lot of fun and a great way to mingle with some of the other attendees. After dancing for a bit we headed back to the tents. We ended up getting a free vape pen with free vapor just for liking the companies Facebook page.
After receiving our pens we decided to do more tastings. I was surprised at how tasty the bourbon selection was! There was one brand that I absolutely enjoyed…they feature peach, butterscotch, & apple pie bourbon; smooth doesn’t even begin to describe the taste and feel of this brand. There were so many other amazing companies its honestly hard to name them all.
I want to provide a little more information about the event! The Beer Bourbon BBQ Festival should be coming to a city near you! Check out their website to learn more about dates and ticket pricing. The festival was two days; it started on Friday and Ended on Saturday. They also offer VIP tickets which allow you early entry to the event along with a VIP tented area. I would definitely splurge on the VIP if you have the extra funds.
If you are looking for something to do this summer this is the perfect event to attend! I highly recommend it go the website right now and purchase tickets for an event near you! The festival will continue to travel well into September.
