New Groove Crispifest Update


Crispifest is now in the history books, probably under the heading, "Best First-Time Events" cause that was the case. Mostly lagers with a few IPAs and Stouts thrown in just to keep one's palate entertained. Still going through my notes, but here are some glimpses of various activities during the Fest hours. 
Was a hot day so a few folks found relief by splashing in a convenient (if small) pool that was handy. Adam Willier broke the ice, so to speak which led to MiMi Medlin joining in. 
Add their experience as another reason to put this event on next year's calendar. Josh Dodson and Jonathan Duke assured me that this event will be repeated!! 
A Crispi Cheers, everyone!

 Crispi Cheers!
