  Hydrate – Make sure you drink plenty of water. The summer events can get very warm in the afternoon heat and with the cornucopia of alcoholic beverages that surround you, one often forgets to keep hydrated. You will appreciate proper hydration as the day goes on and especially the next morning. - See more at: http://mnbeer.com/2012/08/09/beer-festival-survival-guide/#sthash.2vf4KY7x.dpuf
