Yazoo Brewing Company, Blackstone Brewing Company and Big River Grill and Brewing Works will be pouring their brews, along with regional and craft beers such as Stone, New Belgium, Olde Towne, Dogfish Head, Lazy Magnolia, Sweetwater, Terrapin and BBC. Cut your buzz with sop from Jim & Nick's BBQ, The Sports Grille, 12th South Taproom and Mafiaozas. In addition, therell be live music from The Bluff, The Big Tasties, The Last Straw and Honeybaked. Tickets for the 21-and-up festival are $30 in advance or $40 on the day of the festival, while designated-drivers tickets (without beer samples) are available for $15.
