Once again the Trubmeisters ROCKED OUT at the Milwaukee Public Museum's 15th annual Food and Froth Fest.  This year we really out-did ourselves with 12 homebrews, about 8 of which were on tap!  In fact, by our count, we had more beer offerings than any other booth at the fest - way to go Trubs!!  This year we were located in the butterfly exhibit hall, on the first floor.  While not the European Village we'd come to enjoy so much, it was no less fun, and much better lit.  Just down from us was the Miller Rhythm & Blues Band and they were awesome, as were all the bands this year.  Best of all were all the fest goers - we served samples of our homebrew to hundreds of eager beer connoisseurs and received lots of great feedback from people with all sorts of different tastes.  I was left with the distinct impression that homebrew has really gone mainstream now, as most people understood what homebrew is and were especially curious and eager to try some.  The bar has been set (no pun intended!), F&F 2013 will be a tough act to follow.

Yes, that's right...a good time was again had by all at this year's F&FF! Our little corner of the museum was again one of the highlights for many people. They weren't shy about telling us that, either! Our diverse selection of beers kept bringing them back, and they loved them all! Britt's 10.5% Coffee Oatmeal Stout won bragging rights for the year,  for being tapped out after only about an hour and a half! Congrats Britt! Our other beers included a Cask ESB served from a beer engine pump, an IPA made with Apollo hops, and a spicy Belgian Honey Wit. We we also serving a Ginger Mead/Ginger Ale blend that was quite tasty, and finally an old fashioned sarsaparilla soda.

One unique addition to our booth this year were the inflatable cows and goats from the brew barn strewn about on our table and tree. There were SEVERAL attempts by drunken-patrons to purchase these unique decorations (with money or drunken-bartering). With every attempt, however, Brit would grab the goat in question and stroke it lovingly to protect it - don't ask - we didn't either!  ;-)

We hope the fest was a big success for the museum.  Thanks to everyone who volunteered!

The Beer Barons pulled out all the stops and held a FANTASTIC beer fest!!  The selection of beer was impressive, complimented with a wide variety of outstanding homebrew and mead.  Attendance was excellent and this year the traditional WOB rain storm held off until the end.  Food was excellent and the music was great, with one of the best table-dancing tuba players you're likely to ever see perform!  The Trubs had a great time and we can't wait until next years fest!
