The list of breweries expected to participate at the annual Frost Fest winter craft beer festival this winter is out.

Festival organizers recently announced the brewery lineup, including more than 50 breweries from around the region, for this year’s event via their Facebook event.

Frost Fest, the winter beer festival organized by Fayetteville’s Fossil Cove Brewing Co. is set for Saturday, Feb. 1 this year, at 2463 N. McConnell Ave., the venue next to the Washington County Fair Grounds where the event had been held the past two years.

The event debuted in 2016, and became a hit with beer lovers due to its practice of bringing in brewers and representatives from the actual participating breweries (as opposed to volunteers) to pour the beer and interact with festival attendees.

In addition to the beer, the festival will include food from local food trucks, live music by String Deft (featuring members of Arkansauce, The Vine Brothers and Opal Agafia & The Sweet Nothings), Jamie Lou & The Hullabaloo, and Monk Is King.

Tickets are on sale now online for $60, and include a sampling glass, plus all the samples you can drink.

Beer Enthusiast tickets are also available for $80, and include early access to the festival, a larger sampling glass, and a few other perks.
