Fresh on the heels of their victory liberalizing laws regarding beer tasting and brewpubs at breweries, Free The Hops will be hosting the 5th Annual Magic City Brewfest this weekend.
June 3-4, Friday 7-11 p.m., Saturday 4-8 p.m.), come out to Sloss Furnaces to learn about craft beer and sample the best that Alabama has to offer. There will be 200+ individual beers available for tasting including many rare, specialty and cask ales which have never been seen before in Alabama (and may never be seen again).
Avondale Brewing Company, Birmingham's newest brewery, will bring four different beers to Magic City Brewfest including Spring Street Saison, Battlefield IPA, and two Belgian-style beers.
There will be food available for purchase by the plate at the event, from local restaurants such as The J. Clyde, Blackwell's Pub, John's City Diner, Rogue Tavern and Big Sky Bread. Also live music from Abandon August, Skyway Spirits, Jon Vogel & The Southside Community Band, and My Lucky Number.
Tickets are $30; $10 designated drivers, at gate only, includes five tokens good toward the purchase of food at the event.
