In case you're wondering, yes, Lucha Libre is still a thing. I remember watching it as a kid with my grandpa and being entranced by the crazy masks and dramatic moves. We all knew it was fake but that was part of the appeal. Sitting with my grandpa and laughing at the luchadores are some of my favorite memories as a kid. When I saw Beer Fest Beat Down would have live Lucha Libre I knew I had to go. I mean really, how often do you get the chance to see that AND drink craft beer while you're at it? The beers were great, there were more samples than I could have tried over the span of a week. Taking a friend was key so we could sip from each others and try more stuff. I'll definitely be back again next year!
