Ferment Fest February 2017: Five Stops In Six Hours

There are college-town bar-crawls and then there are sip trips. Both are intense for various reasons, including endurance. One focuses on how drunk you can get how fast and the other centers on how to pace yourself over the course of an afternoon.

One weekend this past winter, four family friends and I went and checked out five different sip spots around my college town: A distiller, two breweries, a ciderhouse, and a meadery. It was a belated “Hey kid! You’re 21 now. Let’s hit the town.”

We rated our beverages on a scale out of 10 and included our thoughts. Our results are below. Sheets may or may have been misplaced between stops.  Other times we may have just straight up forgotten to include a stop. Oh well.
