Wow. Another epic #BigBeers in the books. The Wagon has a hard time turning down a good beer festival, and not to mention one that is located in one of the most beautiful places on earth, Vail, Colo. Even more, we got to taste bevvies that we’ve never seen before and had quality conversations with the talented individuals who make the beer. All that being said, we were heavily represented at Big Beers this year and, speaking on behalf of the nearly 15 of us that were there, our faces were rocked off.
We at the Wagon are sometimes known to be a bunch of social media dorks. As such, we were tweeting up a storm, blogging, and filming videos and interviews from the festival. But more importantly, we were blown away by the tweets and enthusiasm from the festival attendees and brewers. It was interesting and sometimes hilarious reading through all the tweets and we wanted to share our top 10 tweets from the festival. Enjoy!
Where’s the best place to hold a beer festival for beer over 7%? Way the hell above sea level, of course! #bigbeers

Hey sea level tourists and amateurs: be careful or it will be called “Big Beers, Belgians, Barleywines and Barfing”… #bigbeers

Packing a 32oz water bottle to carry with me during #bigbeers festival. Hydration will be key. (That and staying warm and dry)

Only at #bigbeers will someone pull a bomber out of a purse and pass it around the group to stave off the cold at the bus stop
