Heather & I secured tickets for this year’s BCTC. I believe this would be my 4th time attending? I skipped a year somewhere in there. Either way, I’m VERY excited. In year’s past, I’ve had regrets about going because usually something gets scheduled that week like a Hill Farmstead event (twice these have happened during BCTC) or like this year, a possible RateBeer Summer Gathering in Michigan but, I go to BCTC and always have a fun time. Here’s more info on the event via their blog:
On August 5 and 6, 3,000 lucky guests will enjoy the opportunity to taste hard-to-find Belgian import brews as well as Belgian-style ales from all over North America. More than 100 breweries will be on-hand pouring while festival-goers fully immerse themselves in a wild and wonderful space fueled by the legendary actor’s best known movies and characters. Tickets go on sale to the public April 1.
As always, BCTC promises more than just great beer – gourmet food vendors, live music, on-site camping and fireworks make the weekend truly special. And of course, surprises! The entire event will be designed to emulate the creativity and spirit of Bill Murray, and what could be more Murray-like than an “anything is possible” attitude and expectation.
I’m not doing VIP this year but I do plan on camping both evenings if I can get a pass from the organizers. If anyone from Ommegang sees this and wants a photographer to take photos like last year’s, just let me know 🙂
