Vegan Beer & Food Fest Recap

Monday, September 28, 2015

 

Thao & the Get Down Stay Down floored many festies with their flavorful tunes.

Vegans were out in full force Saturday to celebrate their love of plant-based foods and punny shirts (Lettuce turnup the beet, anyone?) and GoLocal was on the scene.

For a people who care so much about their food, you can definitely understand why the vegans behind the Vegan Beer and Food Fest also opted to include incredible music and alcohol. Indeed, the Vegan Beer and Food fest was one of the greatest culinary collaborations between food and drink that one can hope to see in a plant-based festival. 

The Los Angeles sunshine followed event planners up from California as did many prominent Los Angeles vegan food companies (e.g. The Grilled Cheese Truck). Mixed with Portland vegan cuisine and booze, our two states have finally seemed to see eachother eye-to-eye for the sake of this splendid event.

Again, if you didn't try the vegan Big Mac, you can at least imagine the magic below. Also, if it's any consolation, you did save $15.
