Last weekend's Malt Ball was a raging success in every sense. The bands were loud and magnificent, every last one. The sell-out crowd was friendly and attractive and in full-on party mode (that may be the first time a mosh pit has ever broken out at a beer fest). And the beer... oh, the beer! It was a day and night to remember.
It was so much fun that some memories, particularly toward the end of the night, are a little foggy. Luckily Rachel Milbauer was there for the Malt Ball's second session, with beer in one hand and camera in the other, to take these great pics of the best music-and-beer fest the world has ever seen (no bullshittin'!). Thanks again to everyone who participated—particularly all the brewers and bands, who brought their A games so that we could have one fantastic, unforgettable party.
