Yesterday the 3rd Annual Mile High Brewfest was held on Goodwin Street in Prescott between Montezuma and Granite. Some 36 breweries and one winery donated their wares to benefit the Boys and Girls Clubs of Central Arizona. The event started at 1 p.m. and we arrived shortly after 4 p.m. With our first tasting we noticed that vendors were using different sizes of plastic cups. I didn’t keep track of every beer that i sampled but I did try at least two new to me breweries – Freak ‘N Brewing and Mudshark – and two familiar ones – Prescott Brewing and Sierra Nevada. I tried several Belgians and finished with Achocolypse, a chocolate porter from Prescott Brewing. My wife tried a blueberry vanilla bean brew, but she especially liked a peach beer. We found a couple of seats around a large table and under cover from the sun. We were close to the bandstand where Alice Wallace and a guitarist were playing when we arrived. She is a singer/songwriter who lives in southern California and plays folk, country, and blues. We left during the country and rockabilly performance of the Jamie Waldrob Trio. We took advantage of our location to sample the tapas and an entree at El Gato Azul. We sat alfresco with a view of Granite Creek. Prescott is an interesting place to live.
