Kokofest 2010

The inaugural Kokofest was held on Oct 9th behind the local brewpub the Half Moon Restaurant & Brewery.  There were live bands, a car show, food & vendor tents and most importantly, 2 beer tents.  World Class Beverages had beers from many different craft breweries from around the country.
There were 3 Indiana breweries there as well.  The Half Moon, Lafayette Brewpub and Upland Brewery were all serving draft beers.  The Howard County Homebrew Club was also pouring excellent homebrew from their traveling bar.
We had 5 beers on tap for the night which kept Tom & Larry hopping as there was a non-stop parade of people interested in sampling our creations.  On tap from the unique gas tower tap were Mike & Jason's American Wheat, Tom's double IPA and Tom's version of this year's Big Brew Belgian Blonde.  All 3 getting very good remarks from the crowd.
As the sun began to set, we added the Bourbon Barrel beer that Jeff had somehow been able to save and Larry's award winning Susie's Sweet Stout.  Word had somehow gotten around the grounds as people began to line up asking for the two stouts by name.




By the time the evening came to a close, and the feel of the kegs we probably went through 20 to 25 gallons of beer in that 5 hour period.  4oz. at a time!
In the days since, I have heard from quite a few attendees to Kokomo's first microbrew festival that the HCHC had the best beer of the event!

Warm Beer, Cold Women

Beer Is Good
