The 2016 Roots N Blues N BBQ Festival is officially over. The artists gave us life, and the food gave us sustenance to keep on dancing. After all is said and done, stages are disassembled, the park is cleaned up, and the vendors take stock of how they did. If you've ever wondered just how much barbecue Columbia can nosh on over a given weekend, we've got the numbers for you.
9,600: Estimated number of craft brews sold by Logboat Brewing Co. In Natty Light terminology, that's 400 cases!
400: Pounds of pulled pork eaten from Dickey's Barbecue Pit. The barbecue joint also sold 300 pounds of brisket and 60 racks of ribs.
1,400: Total number of three-inch pies sold by Peggy Jean's Pies. They sold out several times over the festival weekend.
7: Number of full hogs used by Broadway Brewery for their pork plates. Each hog was out for display and was a point of conversation for many festivalgoers.
100: Gallons of gumbo consumed from Broadway Brewery's tent. The brewery also sold its beer at Roots N Blues for the first time.
