Weekend Memphis. And what a weekend. Care for a beer? Or a few dozen?

Cooper Young Beer Festival 2015

Yes, another smashing success for the Cooper Young Beer Festival. Really, the festival was excellent. And… many sour beers this year. My count? At least four or five sour beers were on tap at the event. One of my favorite breweries this year was Charleville.

Charleville Beer

The pumpkin, coffee and sour were delicious. Usually a brewery has one beer I enjoy. This one had three very good beers. Wiseacre was well represented as well. I loved the Beach Within Reach. Although I have tasted the beer in the past, I decided to have a few “beaches” yesterday. Good stuff.

Oh yes, and this little brewery from Little Rock was very good as well. Moody Brews. Oink. Very good beer.

Aria’s Bier was FANTASTIC.

This morning we took in a beer (didn’t ya have enough Saturday?) and breakfast and a movie. Patio time at Boscos.
