March has flown by, it seems, and we’re now only 5 days away from the first Spring beer festival Downtown! The 2nd Annual River City Brewers Festival will happen in Handy Park at Third and Beale this Saturday, March 26.
There are two sessions, so you can pick which you want to go to: afternoon (12-4) or evening (6-10). Tickets are $30 per session, and include sampling of all beers served in the park. Proceeds will benefit the Autism Society of the Mid-South.
I went to this last year and it was a lot of fun despite being unseasonably cold for March. This year the weather looks much better – high is predicted to be around 70. As we learned from Winter Warmer in January, beer festivals sell out. There is enough interest in craft beer in Memphis for a sellout to occur in the next few days, so if you want to go, don’t count on being able to walk up and purchase a ticket at the door.
See you Saturday! I’ll bring the camera.
(Disclosure: They gave me tickets to both sessions as a thank-you for previous mentions I’d given them. I think long-time readers of this blog realize that I would be whole-heartedly recommending this beer fest, tickets or not.)
