I think it is safe to say festival season is back! This was our third year attending Beer, Bourbon and BBQ in Atlanta, and it seems every time is gets JUST a little bit warmer, enough to finally realize it’s time to start coming out of hibernation.
Unfortunately, I didn’t find any great flavorings for bourbon this year, but I will mention one from past years that has always stuck – Cabin Fever. It is a great maple whiskey, and one that this vodka girl can enjoy. I’ve never been a particular fan of the dark stuff.
There were also tons of beer samples, which is where I leaned to, making this a great event for lovers of all types of different drinks. The chocolate beer was fantastic – Southern Tier’s Chocolate Stout, Choklat, in particular. You will not be disappointed!
Another recommendation and stand out from this year is Midnight Moon’s new Raspberry Moonshine. It was delicious. I got the last sample of it, unfortunately for those behind me (or fortunately, however you want to spin shots of moonshine). This obviously then landed us in the food line, where I grabbed the chicken sandwich and mac and cheese. I was honestly disappointed on the food end – anything involving pork was sold out early on in the festival.
Another beautiful day in the neighborhood….
