This was a great idea that we came up with for the 2016 Jaycee’s Peoria International Beerfest.
The introduction of The Beer Report Beerfest “Confessional”. All we asked is that VIP attendees stopped by and shared who they were and what beers they loved. Here are the results.
An actual booth? The noise pollution was almost unbearable. A small PVC framed booth with a cloth exterior might make this easier on the ears.
Tighter framing. I zoomed the frame in during post… The only reason its not tighter was because of the short gal and Gene’s Vanilla Ice shirt… I had to make sure people saw that awesomeness!
A warning light. We had some people use the camera when the memory card was full. The Go-Pro light would not have been flashing at that time, and I wish I would have been told before I noticed it myself. Live and learn!!!
Otherwise… This was totally fun. We need to copyright and patent this thing for a mobile beerfest activity.
Groucho gets the invite to hang in Delavan at Harvest Cafe and taste a couple of great Point Brewing beers to get us ready for Summer… Then Kevin rolls out some secret beers and a massive BBQ plate to round everything out!
CHUD is home with the Chudlette and could not make the recording! Hopefully, this is one of very few shows ever recorded without him!
Also on the show is Kyle from RJ Distributing. He is the second Cicerone in the Peoria area. We enjoy some banter between Kyle and Kevin later in the show as they discuss tap politics.
The show is over an hour! Sorry. You do need to stick around and hear about selfies with Auggie Busches exhumed body. Just saying.
Beers on the show: Point Brewing Session pale Ale, Point Brewing Siesta Key Pale Ale, Goose Island Sophie, Deschutes Disadent 2015 Reserve, New Holland Vinilla Chia Dragons Milk.
