Free the Hops is pleased to announce its 7th annual Magic City Brewfest, bringing together over 200 types of beer from over 70 breweries for your tasting pleasure. The festival will be held Friday May 31st from 7-11 and Saturday June 1st from 4-8pm at Sloss Furnaces. Tickets will cost $34.50 per person for advance purchase, $40 per person at the gate, and $10 for designated drivers. Free the Hops will also be offering VIP tickets for $85; this ticket will allow the purchaser to gain access to the entire festival, including the VIP area where they will have access to 20 exclusive beers that are not available to other
attendees, 5 dishes from Savoie Catering, and separate portolets.
This year’s brewfest will include beers to be poured exclusively from The J. Clyde Fire Truck
as well as several special beers brewed especially for the festival. There will also be plenty of your old favorites and brand new beers from the Alabama breweries. Some new breweries at the festival include Jester King, Ballast Point, Goose Island, Southern Tier, French Broad, Stillwater, Oskar Blues, and others including what we hope are a couple of new surprises! There are currently 27 breweries who have never been at Magic City Brewfest. In addition, at least 120 of the 200 total beers will be brand new to Magic City Brewfest.
There will be tokens sold to exchange for food from local restaurants, such as The J. Clyde, Melt Food Truck, Off the Hook Food Truck, Belle Chevre and others.
