It’s easy to think that attending a festival dedicated to beer wouldn’t require any preparation (they are providing the beer, after all), but there are a few things you need other than a t-shirt from your favorite brewery. Every beer fest has water filling stations. Fill your bottle. Keep track of your favorite tastes and notes in a Word. notebook. You’re probably going to be doing a lot of standing and walking, so comfortable shoes are a must. Even if you’re not checking in every beer on Untappd (good luck with service) your phone is going to die. The battery pack will help you get an Uber home. Then there’s the staple pretzel necklace. Taryn Williford put together a few that we’d eat right now, but put one together yourself for the fest. Have fun. Get home safe.
