The festival, which got its start in 2012, has grown to become one of the most anticipated beer events of the year in the region. This year, it will feature brews from more than 50 local, regional and national breweries.

The fun starts at 5 p.m., when gates will open and attendees can sample hundreds of craft brews set up at booths inside the Town Center. Expect live music by Rachel B. Party of 3 and Arkansauce, as well as some sustenance to help soak up the beer by a handful of local food trucks. According to the event’s website, Mellow Mushroom, Baller Food Truck, Beaver Tails Pastry, and Yancey’s Dickson Street Dogs will provide the food this year.

VIPs can get early entry to the festival at 4 p.m., as well as access to an area complete with heavy hors d’oeuvres, and brews created for the event by the local home brewing club, FLOPS (Fayetteville Lovers of Pure Suds).

General Admission tickets are $45, VIP tickets are $75, and designated driver tickets are also available for $20. A portion of the proceeds from the event benefit JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation), The Lib Horn Fayetteville Animal Shelter, and Ranger’s Pantry Pet Food Bank.
