Special Beer Festivals Podcast featuring Scott Freeman
This podcast episode focuses on “Festival Pours with Scott Freeman”, craft beer expert at Rural On Tap and creator of the Rocktown Brewdown Beer Festival. We tap into Scott’s world as a former Miller Brewing Rep and craft beer marketer, as well as taste some top shelf beers from festival standout breweries like Maplewood (Lemon Drop), Firestone Walker (Parabola, Bravo), Pig Minds (South Bitch Slap).
Home-brew Rockstars also break out a stand-out German Pilsner called Stammtisch from Urban Chestnut featuring the new large pop top lids (these are awesome!). All with music samples of some Acid Jazz/Funk classics from Chicago’s own Liquid Soul, led by the one and only Mars Williams.
The ROCKTOWN BREWDOWN 2017 Beer Festival on Saturday August 19 at 4:00 pm features all the the breweries mentioned above as part of 25 in total and more than 10 exclusive home-brews from Forest City Brewers. This inaugural event offers early VIP (3:00 pm) to a limited number of beer geeks for $55 (with access to special pours and a custom T-shirt), Regular Entry for $35, and Designated Driver tickets are also available for $10.
