Brewvival 2013 was one to be remembered. We all knew heading into it that it was going to be raining, hard. Seriously. Warnings were broadcast via Twitter, Facebook and other avenues telling everyone that rain gear was going to be a necessity and to plan for seriously messy conditions. That was no exaggeration. There was some fear of lightning and postponement but Jared at CHSwx ensured us we should be in the clear, for lightning at least. I was shooting the festival so I arrived early to get some set up shots of the brewers and workers and check out the layout. When I sloshed up at 10:00 AM there were already 10-20 people waiting in line in a downpour, all of them excited about the day. Tents set up with people making breakfast in the parking lot, vendors still pouring in, literally, and ice being delivered to the brewer’s tents. The closer we got to the Noon starting time, the harder the rain fell. This was going to happen.
