So this weekend is the inaugural New Orleans International Beer Fest, being held at Champions Square from 2-6pm on Saturday. The most intriguing aspect of it for me is the Cask Beer Garden! I don’t know how many cask ales they will have going, but I hope it is a crazy success and leads to beer leadership in the area to think about how to do a Cask/Real Ale Festival a la NERAX.
You may also be interested in hearing the Beer Buddha’s general philosophy on beer festival structures here.
Tonight, the Avenue Pub will be tapping a cask of Lazy Magnolia’s Southern Hops-itality, their first IPA. I am looking forward to trying it.
Also, mark your calendars, April 7 has been dubbed Session Beer Day, to celebrate the fine ales and lagers brewed with an ABV of under 4.5%. Follow the Beer Bitch for discussions over the next two weeks about this radical concept and where one can find session beers in New Orleans.
If you love pork as much as beer, tomorrow also brings us the NOLA-Brewing sponsored Hogs For The Cause in City Park. It’s a pork-centric festival with food, beer, music, and good times, all for a good cause- to support pediatric brain cancer outreach services. Local restaurateurs and enthusiastic amateurs will be competing in several porky categories for glory.
Whatever your plans, have a wonderful weekend! Drink wisely and well.
