Retro Rabbit's Beer Fest: A Sun-Filled, Fun-Packed Extravaganza!

What happens when you combine Rabbits, heat, sun, great-tasting cider, and beers? You get Retro Rabbit's epic Beer Fest, that's what! This year's event was an absolute blast, and let me tell you, the vibes were off the charts! 🐰🍺

This year the tables were strategically arranged so that you could easily navigate your way through all the samples without missing a single sip. Cheers to that! 🍻 It's always awesome to see our Rabbit brewing up some great beer, even better to drink it. 

Despite the scorching 38-degree heat, there was a flurry of activity around the fires. And let me tell you, those fires produced some top-notch meals that had everyone drooling with delight. Mmm, yum! πŸ”₯πŸ” Now, let's talk about water β€” there was loads of it this year! We learned from the scorching heat of 2022. And, in a thoughtful touch, there were plenty of non-alcoholic options for our Rabbit friends who don't partake. Hydration is key! πŸ’¦πŸ₯€

To keep the party going and heat stroke at bay, there was a well-covered tent where excellent bands rocked the stage. I was particularly interested in Phlippie's band. They brought the house down! 🎢 While some enjoyed chilling and chatting in their various areas, a few adventurous souls preferred to fully engage in the fest with the Retro Rabbit mascot. Who needs a comfy couch when you can party with a rabbit, right? 🐰🎊

This year wasn't just about the adults having a good time. Our events team thought of everything, including great childcare facilities. Kids had a blast with cool paints, kid-friendly snacks, and a jumping castle. And don't worry, there were childminders and safety bands to ensure everyone had an awesome time. πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§β€πŸ‘¦πŸŽ¨πŸ°

Overall, seeing the Rabbit crew, former Rabbits, some rockstar clients, and families and friends having a blast was a sight to behold. The day was filled with laughter, fun, and memorable moments. We even had a few brave souls dipping their feet in the pool when the heat got a little too intense. Cool off, my friends! πŸ’¦πŸŠβ€β™€οΈ

If you happened to miss Beer Fest this year, take my advice: don't miss out next time! It's an event you won't want to skip. Mark it down on your calendar, gather your crew, and get ready for an unforgettable time at Retro Rabbit's Beer Fest! Cheers, and see you next year! πŸŽ‰πŸ»πŸ° #PartyWithRabbit #FunInTheSun #BeerFestBliss
