Disclosure: I received complimentary passes to this event, all opinons are my own.
Mohegan Sun hosted its second annual Sun BrewFest last weekend and it was better than ever! It’s always perfectly timed to be the same weekend as my wedding anniversary and since my husband and I share a love for good beer and Mohegan Sun – attending is always a no-brainer!
There was a great mix of local and national beer brands represented. I saw Goose Island right when I walked through the doors, which has quickly become one of my “go to” brands since I discovered it at last years Sun BrewFest. Their Sofie brew is easily one of my favorites, but I went with a sample of their Oktoberfest and was impressed. It had great flavor and was very drinkable!
Being a lightweight, I tried to stick with one sample per vendor but once I tried Brewery Ommegang’s Hennepin, I had to try more! The Hennepin, a farmhouse saison, was smooth, citrusy, a little bit sweet and a little bit hoppy. I also tried their Abbey Ale, a dubbel ale. It was sweet and then a little bitter. It packed a ton of different flavors which disguised that it was 8.5% ABV. I would love to try more of Brewery Ommegang’s beers and maybe take a trip to their brewery in Cooperstown, NY.
My husband was a fan of Blue Point’s Mother Pumpkin Ale, an easy to drink pumpkin ale with lots of pumpkin pie flavor and a hint of malt. He also really enjoyed City Steam’s newest beer, Crème de la Crème. A cream ale that goes down really smoothly!
We stopped by the Guinness booth and grabbed some black and tans before grabbing a bite to eat. There was a great variety of food, my husband got chicken and waffles and I got a bar-b-q beef slider. Perfect!
Besides all the beer and all the food we had a great time with the Jack Links Sasquatch display.
Had our picture taken in front of the Step and Repeat.
Listened to some great music by Major Motion.
…and one of us may have taken a bathroom selfie. What can I say? I loved the way they incorporated the #SunBrewFest hashtag this year!
Needless to say, we had a blast! We finished up our night with an awesome dinner at Sol Toro grill and some gambling. I wouldn’t mind spending our anniversary this way every year. Here’s to many, many more!
