Here’s the first pint glass I ever got from my first ever beer festival. Me and a couple of friends went out to the Wheaton Ale Fest in 2012 and I decided to try every IPA I could. They all pretty much tasted the same until I saw a booth with a raised fist. I wandered over and for the first time I had Revolution Anti-Hero IPA. It had such a unique hop bite that was different from the west-coast IPAs I had been drinking all day.
For some reason I’ve never gone back to the Wheaton Ale Fest but this glass reminds me of what a good time I had at my first beer festival trying so many beers from so many breweries I would go on to love.
