Awesome Beer Souls can be found at the Preserve

“Tick and opportunity opens, and tock an opportunity closes.” And so it is, as we preamble through this walking experiment we like to call life. And so says one of my favorite characters from an old Sci-Fi show called Babylon 5. So when I arrived at The Springs Preserve for the Brews and Blues festival and had circumstances outside of my control tell me I had to be at work in an hour and a half, would not be able to drink the very craft beer I know and love, at the very event I was most looking to writing about.. it was definitely a kick in the manhood. TOCK..

Yet when a door closes another opens. I chose to spend the hour and a half I had trying to find the greatest souls, and the coolest personalities right here in the very valley we live. The following is just some of the awesome people I met, as I spirited around one of the most unique event spaces on the craft beer calendar

“The Springs Preserve is a 180-acre cultural institution designed to commemorate Las Vegas’ dynamic history and to provide a vision for a sustainable future. The Preserve features museums, galleries, outdoor concerts and events, colorful botanical gardens and an interpretive trail system that meanders through a scenic wetland habitat.”

Though I could not drink with you this day, we shall soon! Love to you all!
