Craft beer is a hot industry, and the South has stepped right into the fire. With craft brewers popping up all over our region and more and more people developing a love of special small-batch brews, the stage is set for the Great Southern Beer Fest. Beer aficionados, mark your calendars: The Birmingham festival is set for Saturday, May 11 at Railroad Park.
Sun, Fun, and Refreshing Suds
If the thought of sipping your way through a variety of tasty brews and soaking up the warm spring sun in beautiful Railroad Park sounds good to you, then this festival has your name on it. The fantastic lineup of participating breweries for this year’s event includes Ghost Train Brewing Company, Cahaba Brewing, Catawba Brewing Co., Old Black Bear, SweetWater Brewery, Goodwood, Birmingham District Brewing Company, Salt Life Lager, and many more.
And what’s beer without food? Some of the area’s most popular food trucks will be in attendance to provide mouthwatering accompaniments to your favorite brews.
It’s not just beer that draws festival goers to this exciting event, either – no Southern festival is complete without a backdrop of great live music and plenty of games and activities. Join in the fun of Corn Hole, giant Jenga, life-size Connect Four, Ladder Ball, and other games.
