Inland Empire Beer and Music Festival

Over this past weekend (May 13, 2017), I was able to attend the second annual Bier Buzz Inland Empire Beer and Music Festival. This event featured over 20 craft breweries and 4 bands, including my wonderful boyfriend’s band, Inside Riot. The headliner was Alien Ant Farm, who admittedly I only recognize from their hit “Smooth Criminal,”  but I thoroughly enjoyed the rest of their set as well. The festival was totally a blast! Lots of great beers, great music, and good times with friends. So I wanted to share some of my pictures from the event. Enjoy!
