So Long Sweet Summer ~ Hipstamatic Adventures

Sep 5, 2011

Whenever I hear a Joel Plaskett song playing it reminds me of singing along to his CDs in the car this past summer, on the way to the Muskoka Beer Festival. Sometimes it’s tricky trying to explain to people how craft beer events are not all about drunken debauchery, how it’s nothing like the cheesy beer commercials on tv. Thanks to big corporations (ahem Molson!) people have this mental image of beer drinkers as frat boy types chugging beer after beer and chasing after girls. The craft beer scene isn’t like that at all!!! Microbreweries put a lot of thought and effort into their products and the results are flavourful beers, none of this I’m-drinking-different-brands-yet-they-all-taste-like-water nonsense.

That whole weekend was full of memories and the beer festival itself was the perfect day. Even though I wore wool shorts and roasted in the sun, I wouldn’t change a thing. I can't wait to go again next year!!!

So long sweet summer, memories of new discoveries, St Ambroise apricot wheat ale, road trips, gross martinis, Fresh takeout, thrift store treasure hunting, laughter, sunshine & swimming, art galleries, practical footwear, family & friends :)
