Thanks for a great Kenai Beer fest
I would like to thank the Soldotna Rotary Club and its president Dan Nelson for last weekend’s Kenai Peninsula Beer Festival.
The annual event was so much more then a “Beer Fest.” The 25-plus beer vendors made this the core part of the evening, going from booth to booth to drop a wooden token then try something new and move on to next one. The wide range of food trucks made picking just one impossible, so like most, I picked a couple to try. The live music kept the crowd going during the standard Soldotna rain shower.
This event was also a great time to see old friends, co-workers, former co-workers, etc. Specia recognition to Doug Hogue, owner Of KRB for all the work he put in and his award for Best Brewery.
Most vendors hand out advertising stickers — it’s a fun way to keep track of what beers you sampled and is a friendly competition to see who can collect the most. My Biggest “thank you” goes to Alaska Cab, for having the taxi stand by the exit and putting on extra drivers who worked at a reduced rate to provide safe rides home. Great job, Alaska Cab.
