Getting Garlic in Gilroy
We had the pleasant surprise when we first pulled our RV into Gilroy, CA we noticed the wonderful smell of Garlic.
Gilroy California is the “Garlic Capital of the World”.
It’s a small town with a ton of character and a great smell. Many of the buildings downtown have unique paintings. Gilroy is on the wine trail and offers breathtaking vineyards.
We had the pleasure to be a part of a local event that brought a lot of people into town. It was the annual Gilroy Beer Crawl. It starts at a bank on one end of downtown, continues to the other end, then back across the street. They block off the street and have a live band playing. There were some other vendors as well.
It was an event where they encouraged Halloween Costumes. Who loves Sriracha?
This is a big event. There were over 20 different beer companies that have booths set up with two tasting per booth. What was really cool is that local businesses hosted the tastings. Everything from a bank, the chamber of commerce, all the way down to a vacuum store.
Who else can say they tasted beer at a vacuum store?
This guy had the costume to match the tasting.
This guy was the most informative and knowledgeable at the entire event.
A lot of the downtown buildings in Gilroy are painted.
The marketing of Shag Beauty Bar was impressive. They had a “Selfie Station” where you could put on wigs, outfits, etc and then tag them on instagram. The staff was extremely friendly as well. To top it all off, they gave away Slim Jims so we could snap in.
The best Garlic I’ve ever had!!!
