Weekend Beer Festival Forecast for April 4 to 7, 2013

Road Trips for Beer photo by Gerard WalenI’m currently on a Road Trip from Florida to St. Louis with my 9-year-old daughter, who’s on Spring Break. Our final destination will be her dance competition, then I’ll be leaving her with her mom and heading back, planning to hit a few breweries along the way.

So what does this have to do with beer festivals? Well, I already have a cooler and two boxes filled with purchases of beer not distributed in my home state and the “For Beer” part of my Road Trip hasn’t started! But this is why I love beer festivals: It’s a great way to sample the craft beer offering from a local area, which will help guide you when it’s time to buy brew to take home.

So enjoy the trip each way!

The Weekend Beer Festival Forecast publishes each Wednesday to alert beer road trippers about beer festivals and other brew-related events during the upcoming weekend.
