(Lander, Wyo.) – Never a dull moment at the Lander Area Chamber of Commerce… extra-especially the week of the 2014 Fremont Toyota Lander Brew Fest. Staff are co-locating industrial-sized paper-cutting lasers to hyper-perforate 1000 sheets of 2-up festival programs. The conference room printer is humming louder than Associate Director Carol King’s Darius Rucker Pandora station. We are phoning late-entry brewer entries to clarify what they mean by “tettnangs.” (Evidently the brewers are not, in fact, referring to the second release of the Linux operating system Fedora. Who knew.) Executive Director Brian Fabel has just returned from the weekly Rotarian luncheon – after hosting a Lander Brew Fest History Trivia Game — showcasing the soon-to-be famous “Fabelfare” radio-personality voice. Chamber board emeritus and volunteer Barb Speyer is mass-collating convention and vacation packets for the incoming summer visitors – and quickly earning the title of the office Printer/Copier Whisperer. This year’s Brew Fest truly is the kick-off of summer.
One. More. Sleep.
