It seems hard to remember a time when there wasn’t a plethora of cool craft beers to search out and enjoy. Saturday, Feb. 3, at the BJCC, the hunt for your favorite brew will be even easier. Grab your crew and join us!
The 2nd Annual Birmingham Winter Beer Fest is your chance to compare amazing beers from 60+ craft breweries side by side. It’s especially exciting to sample so many choices from Alabama; some of the best brews in the country and many from right here in the Ham!
Drink like an Egyptian….
Because a little history never hurt anyone…beer has been around since the Egyptians and the Babylonians grew grain in the rich soil, then malted and fermented them 5000 years ago.
Noah’s provisions included beer on the Ark. 4300 BC. Babylonian clay tablets detail recipes for beer. Beer is still a mainstay beverage today and has become even more popular with the local craft beer movement.
Why has the craft beer trend stuck around and why is it growing?
“I think it’s the fact that whether you’re new to craft beer or an experienced craft beer drinker, there are so many different styles and something for everyone.
Discovering a great new craft beer is a great way to bond with your friends.” Alex Colee, Red Mountain Entertainment.
Maybe your thing is IPA or Stouts, Porters or Winter Lager, or even cider. This festival will have the perfect brew for you. Like last year, this event is guaranteed to be a great time, full of flavor, good food and great tunes.
“Before you spend Super Bowl Sunday on the couch watching football, come spend a great Saturday with your friends sampling over 150 world-class craft beers!
With so many different beers in one great location, there’s something for everyone, whether you’re brand new to craft beer or a total aficionado.” Alex Colee
Tickets to the event allow you to discover over 150 world-class craft beers in four different gardens. Act quickly to get early bird discount pricing on general admission tickets before January 12th. (pricing below).
