There’s no question that craft beer is the mainstay at Mammoth Festival of Beers & Bluesapalooza, but good food is an integral part of the 4-day party as well, and this year’s event will have your taste buds in happy mode. You’ll find a gallery of favorite eats (and desserts, too) from many of Mammoth’s finest restaurants and eateries. Just know it’s not the time to scale back the appetite. There’re Bluesapalooza’s long-standing faces like the infamous pulled pork sandwich and coleslaw, and barbecue ribs and beer-braised brats. For the more culturally-minded, (and my personal favorite), there’s naan wraps and veg curry and rice bowls. Fill me up! And it isn’t every day you get to partake in true New Orleans “blues food” with catfish, gator, cajun, jambalaya, and fried frog legs. (Maybe this is the year I’ll see if they really taste like chicken.) Organic fruit kabobs, gourmet ice cream bars, and smoothies will make your sweet one smile. For the traditionalist to the adventurous, there’s a lot of good food fusion happening at Bluesapalooza: American, Indian, Mexican, Hawaiian, Filipino food and more. Check out this year’s tasty lineup.
Just make sure you leave enough belly room for all that great craft beer. 😉
