Munster Ale Fest 2019

Well, that's another Munster Ale Fest in the books. This year was the 6th Munster Ale Fest at Centennial Park in Munster where about 30 breweries were set up pouring some of their signature brews - everything from sours to IPAs to brown ales to stouts. It's always a good time and I always find something new to try.
A few unusual and yummy beers I tried out this time were:
Rare Eagle Summer Stout from Byway Brewing. I've never had a white stout like this before. It wasn't as heavy as the thick, dark stouts, but had the vanilla and coffee flavors you often get in stouts.
Big Purp from Sour Note Brewing. I was happy to see so many sours there today. Sour Note Brewing in Hammond concentrates on that style only and they've got quite a variation. Big Purp had a bright purple hue and tasted like grape kool-aid.
