Moss Rock Beer Garden
The beer garden featured beer from dozens of breweries, including a ginger beer brewery and a home-brewers club! Trimtab Brewing was pouring their seasonal Cranberry Spice Holiday Now brew.
A Souvenir Glass for Everyone
The beer garden also featured organic wines and snacks. Each beer garden attendant got to take home a special Moss Rock Beer Garden glass after using them for tastings!
Fall Colors, Delicious Food and Large-Scale Moth Paintings
The fall colors were showing off in the green space while everyone jammed to local musicians!
Deborah Davis was the featured artist this year. She paints large-scale works that realistically depict moths! She uses these to show off the beauty of the often-overlooked moth. Everyone at the festival was in awe of these beautiful works of art! If you look closely, you can also see a real moth specimen. Each work was accompanied by its real specimen, provided by a professor at Samford University.
The Cuban sandwich from Miami Fusion Cafe hit the spot! It’s great to support local foodies, especially those who are making Birmingham a better place. Learn more about the amazing owner of the restaurant here.
Makers and Artisans Among the Autumn Leaves
Local artists and makers of all kinds lined the festival in tents to share their art, food, ceramics and more with the festival-goers. Among paintings, woodworking, honey, flowers and more was a section about smart living. The smart living section featured Gearbox Rentals, an adventure-van rental company. The company has renovated multiple vans and equipped them with everything you’ll need for an epic camping adventure.
Everyone was in good spirits as they walked tent-to-tent, learning about and chatting with all the local artisans.
