The 2011 Great American Beer Festival is only a few days away and to get you inspired for the festival, I’ve decided to share some not-previously published photos that I took last year of attendees and vendors in costume. It was a lot of fun taking these photos and I hope you enjoy them.
Last year, 2010, I attended my first Great American Beer Festival and one of the things that caught my attention was the number of people wearing awesome and creative costumes to the festival. It wasn’t until the last day that I started taking photos of attendees in costume. Many of the costumes had some sort of beer or beer culture theme. There were quite a few women wearing dirndls, a few men wearing lederhosen, and everybody else wore something fun or outrageous but nothing shocking.
The follow photos are just a small sample of what I saw at the festival. What are some of your favorite costumes that you saw at or maybe wore to the Great American Beer Festival?
