First reporting: More than 1,000 folks dropped at least $50 to turn out for the dozens of craft beers offered up at Charleston Brewvival on Saturday, February 27.
Put on by Coast Brewing and the Charleston Beer Exchange the event was a festival for beer lovers -- what other type of crowd would salivate because of a keynote by Greg Koch, founder and CEO of Stone Brewing?
Read more stories on this subject in our Brewvival topic page.As for the quality of the beer: With varaties like Bell's spicy Batch 9,000, New Belgium's sour NBB Love, and Terrapin's hearty Capt'n Krunkles served up in 3 ounce batches it was hard to find something that didn't intrigue the palette (full list of beers and links.)
The Charleston City Paper's T. Ballard Lesemann has a nice write-up from the festival (and a bit more analysis on the beer as that's more his turf than mine.)
As for multimedia, our video is still in the works but that doesn't mean there aren't of lovely great shots: Chrys Rynearson has a bunch (that's the slideshow below,) as does Robert Donovan, there's a slew more in the Brewvival Flickr photo pool, and the City Paper has its own slideshow.
The Brewvival was a great time, so here's to hoping it wasn't a limited edition.
