[September 15, 2018]  This past weekend, the Lincoln Pigs & Swigs Festival was held on the Logan County Courthouse Square. Among the many activities included in the weekend were the events going on at the “Swigs” side of the festival.

Starting Friday evening Swigs offered live music throughout the evening beginning with local vocalist Lesleigh Bennett.

Local downtown businesses, Flossie and Delzena’s, and Spirited Republic provided excellent foods perfectly paired with craft beers for the first event of the weekend.

A variety of local craft breweries were on hand, and the beer wagon offered some beautiful and original blends.

On Saturday, the highlights of the day on the Swigs side included the bags tournament and the homebrew competition.

This year there were multiple entries in the homebrew competition. Judging was held inside Guest House Coffee & Pastries where it was cool.

Winners of the home brew competition by class were:

IPA – Nate Folkes
Stout – Brent Sperry
Brown/Amber – Andy Hazelrigg
Wheat – Ashely Sperry
Pilsner – Roy Lee
Miscellaneous – Jerry Welch

Adding plenty of musical flavor from the stage throughout the rest of the weekend were Powerplay on Friday night; Toocan, and Tennessee Borderline on Saturday.
