Thursday Getaway: Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Fest 2015

At this point in the week, we suspect you're in the mood to get out and enjoy the world outside of your computer screen, but it's Thursday, and you can't–yet. Don't despair! We've got just the thing to make you smile, daydream or draw inspiration from for your weekend, which is just around the corner.

Simply put, the Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Festival is a celebration of craft beer, the people who make it and the people who love it. This weekend, folks from around the country will gather in Paso Robles, California to taste some of the best brews in the world, and we'll be there for the festivities. Watch the video above from a few years ago to get a feel for what the event is like. Still curious? Read the paragraph from the Firestone Walker site below, which sums it all up beautifully: 

"This is a day where we can all put down our sales and marketing pitches and simply commune and share our beers and stories with people who are truly interested in craft beer. The ground rules are simple. Bring a session beer and a special beer accompanied by the artisan who created it. Brewers, their beers, good music and folks who care."
