Posted in Beer Festivals on June 3, 2011 by Steve

I know it’s more than a month away, but I wanted to get the word out there in case nobody knows about it. On July 23, at the Rock Hill Fire Department, the International Great Beer Expo will be taking place from 2:00pm – 6:00pm. Tickets are $40 if purchased ahead, or $55 at the door if any tickets are available. The price includes a tasting glass and ability to taste 2 oz. pours of any participating brewery. As of right now, they are expecting 30+ brewers and 75+ beers.

The brewers signed on as of this posting are as follows: Innis & Gunn, Signha Beer, Keegan Ales, Gilded Otter, Peekskill Brewery, Doc’s Hard Cider, Staropramen, Thomas Hooker, Spaten, Franziskaner, Stiegl, Goose Island Beer Company, The Old Burnside Breweing Company, and Alexander Keith’s. All of these breweries represent different parts of the world, and if your a beer enthusiast, this is a perfect¬†opportunity¬†to try out different brews.

I will definitely be in attendance, and you can expect a full assortment of reviews following shortly after the festival (or whenever I recover. 2 oz a piece…75 beers…150 oz…thats about 12.5 full beers? Sounds like a Saturday night to me!
