The “glasses” at Red Mountain’s first annual Beer Goggles Craft Brew Festival hold only three ounces. Which is, apparently, enough. Keri Bascetta, SKI’s staff photographer, and I are standing around in ski clothes in a party tent on a wood-chipped parking lot with, well, pretty much everyone within a 50-mile radius of the place, drinking tiny beers and laughing our butts off. We are freezing, but we don’t care. Snow has started to accumulate outside—a light dust that coats the plastic tent windows and picnic tables.
