The Thirsty Beagle did indeed make it out to the Bricktown Blues and BBQ Festival on Saturday night. It was a nice time: Weather was great and the beer was cold, even if it was only generic Budweiser products. My only beef with the festival is the BBQ part of it. If you’re going to have “BBQ” in the name of your festival, it would be nice to come with some top-notch BBQ. I had a brisket sandwich that was room-temperature and slightly dry. Definitely nothing to write home about. Can’t we get some of the city’s top BBQ joints out there to provide their best? Maybe make a competition out of it? It’s easy to do average BBQ, and that point was driven home Saturday night.
Also over the weekend, had a couple comments posted on some older TTB blogs that I thought I’d share. Greg posted this in response to my request for people to share stories of the worst beer they ever had:
Thanks Greg. I think we’ve all been there at one time or another. And Nathan posted this about my account of my Journey Into Intoxication at Disney World:
“Nice post and blog. I actually found your your blog because I just got back from DW yesterday and was google-ing to find out more about this Casa Beer I had in Morrocco, Epcot. I too “Drank Around the World,” and was actually silly enough to think I invented the idea lol. I dubbed it The Country Crawl. I’m not a big beer drinker but once I realized they only served Dos Equis in Mexico, I thought the idea would be fun. I had the aforementioned, Casa in Morocco, something (I forget) in Norway at dinner, Bodington’s in the U.K., Beck’s in Germany, would have done Tsingtao and Saporro in China and Japan but I could not find the bar in those countries :/ In Italy and France I assumed wine would be the offering as opposed to beer so I skipped those countries. All in all I thought it was fun:)”
