2017 Sea Isle Beer Fest

(The following is a special series on Bluejeanfood.com written by guest contributing writer and correspondent for “Small Bites Radio” William Knowles. He highlights his passions of trying something new whenever the opportunity presents itself, or possibly something old, but new again since it has been a while. I hope you enjoy his very special perspective that I am sure many of you can relate to. Follow him on his exciting journey “Around Town”)

On Saturday, June 3rd, I attended the 2017 Sea Isle Beer Fest in Sea Isle City, NJ.  An early summer event that combines brew and beach. The event and town did not disappoint.

The event was staged in the parking lot of the island’s notable nightspot Kix McNutley’s, which features five seperate bars and a club for vacationers and natives to enjoy.  Over 60 brands of craft beer participated, including many local favorites.  Cape May Brewing Co., Forgotten Boardwalk, Tuckahoe Brewing Co., Evil Genius, Garden State Beer Co., and 7 Mile represented the shore and city scene well.  National names such as Leinenkugel, Travelers, Samuel Adams, Blue Moon, Magic Hat and Brooklyn Brewery all set up shop as well.

Kix McNutley’s own Yum Yum Wagon food truck provided the eats, while patrons partook in fun and games set up on the grounds.  The band Animal House played live music throughout the afternoon.  A festival such as this is a bit different than your normal beer fest, considering that many of the attendees were not just headed to a destination, but rather those vacationing or living in Sea Isle already.  It was my first visit to the island in a number of years, and events such as this provide a nice way to spend time and explore all that the town had to offer, besides the beach.  Kix McNutley’s was the perfect host, and it is easy to see why it is one of the premier locations on the island for good food and spirits…

Cheers to all for a great time.  I’ll see you by the beach, “around town”…
