Stone 13th Anniversary Celebration – What’s On Tap?!
Dan from thefullpint.com blogs on Saturday’s Stone 13th Anniversary Celebration and Invitational Beer Festival, and shares some of the exciting tap offerings from the guest breweries as well as Stone Brewing! Please use the comment feature at the end to let us know what you are most excited to try!
For the third year straight, TheFullPint.com will be on hand at Session A of the Stone Anniversary Celebration and Invitational Beer Festival. Look out for Jon and Jillian, so we can have a photo with you, that will be posted the following week at TheFullPint.com!
With all the guest craft breweries on hand, you might fall victim to sensory overload. Here are a few tips I’d like to share with you, based on past experiences.
- Eat a good breakfast. I know it’s a given, but whether you are going to Session A or B, get a hearty meal in your stomach.
- Get a few glasses of water under your belt. Keeping your body hydrated will be the key to not getting a headache or too woozy.
- Wear sneakers or a decent pair of shoes, not flip flops. Those stairs at UC San Marcos go on forever. We don’t want you tumbling down!
- Meet some new friends. You are all there because you love beer, and Stone Brewing in particular. Have a few tasters and come out of your shell!
- Sunscreen is your friend. There will be shaded areas, but if you love the sun, there will be plenty of that going around too.
