Yesterday's inaugural Tailspin Ale Fest at Bowman Field is described in a WDRB television clip, linked below.
Organizer Tisha Gainey staged a first-rate beercentric soiree; the fact that my back is killing me today amply testifies to the fun. Regrettably, although local beer peeps shared a few hilarious stories, I was constantly advised against sharing them. Damn! But the inevitable tell-all book draws ever closer.
The video at WDRB's site gives a good sense of proportion in terms of the venue. Congrats to Tisha, her assistants and the many volunteers who made it possible.
