Drinking Beers...

So, the North Fork Craft Beer Festival was infinitely better than the one on Governor's Island last summer -- It might have had to do with the fact that Justin bought us VIP tickets so that we had a solid hour and a half of extra drinking time before the masses arrived. Justin and I arrived there on time (Our friends were two hours late. We think they did it on purpose) and we took full advantage of it. We hit up every brewery's table at least once and the ones we liked more than that -- My personal favorite was McKenzie's Hard Cider in black cherry, it was super yummy. The food that we got for free on the other hand was terrible but hey we weren't expecting much, plus we both don't really care for BBQ.

After the festival Justin and I headed over to The Lobster Roll Restaurant for dinner -- If you haven't been there before I'd totally recommend you try it out one day if you're in Riverhead, NY. We shared a bowl of seafood chili as an appetizer, he ate seafood mac and cheese as his dinner and I had a hot lobster roll. It was all good, especially in comparison to the free food we had gotten earlier in the day.

All in all, we had a great day and we'd totally go back to it again next year. The only thing I'd do differently is head out there earlier in the day we could do some pre-festival wandering around Riverhead so I could take some awesome pictures of random farm type things.
