Ross and I at the beginning of the festival, showing off our glasses!
…because sometimes Kelly and I make goofy faces.
Cortez Cigars make an appearance every summer and it’s always so neat to see them hand rolled.
This was a find! We got to sample our namesake bourbon, and it was H.E.A.V.E.N.L.Y. …if only we could have taken some home!
Watching them pull pork – it was so cool! I was like a kid in a candy store.

A little cornhole action, showcasing the theme of the festival.
Cloudy skies and rain couldn’t deter our fun!
Over 40 types of bourbon and more beers than we could count. Pulled pork and good ol’ Southern food for days.
This was the third summer in a row we’ve ventured down to Cary, N.C. for the annual “Beer Bourbon & BBQ Festival” and, true to form, it was a winning time. We sampled a good amount of tasty brews and beverages, but the best part? Spending time and catching up with friends we don’t get to see nearly as often as we’d like. I feel so lucky we were able to make the trip, and we are already counting down to next summer’s shindig!
