Recap of the 2012 Taste of Derby fest at Slugger Field, April 25.

Once again this year, NABC participated in the Taste of Derby Festival, which was held on Wednesday, April 25th at Louisville Slugger Field. This year's award winners and photos can be found here. NABC's Director of Brewing Operations, David Pierce, tells about it:

Josh Hill and Jeremy Kenedy set up, manned and tore-down the beer side of the event. We served Black and Blue Grass, Hoptimus, Beak's Best and Bob's Old 15B. The crowd loved our TV set taps, and we blew both Black and Blue Grass and Hoptimus completely, as well as most of the Beak's and 15B. It was a great, sold-out crowd. We were stationed inside this year which made for a steamy event.

Chef Matt, Mark, Tonya and Mrs. Chef ran the BSB food venue. They blew through the whole batch of 15B Chocolate Mousse before the half-way point. BSB's second d
ish was BBQ served on crustinis. All in all, between 400 and 500 guests were served.
