The second annual Brew Haw Haw last Saturday attracted a medium-sized but lively (not rowdy) crowd 'Drinking for a Good Cause' to benefit of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. It was nice to not have to wait in big lines for the food or beverages as the weather wasn't as blisteringly hot as last last year or days just prior.

There was was nothing micro about the full bodied tastes from microbreweries and brewpubs like Firestone-Walker, Lagunitas, Pyramid, Karl Strauss, and Mendocino Brewing. The summer brews and hefeweizen/wheat beers were popular, and even Sierra Nevada added Kellerweis hefe to its lineup.
