There’s something brewing in South Boston this weekend, much to the delight of beer and cider lovers.
For the second year, the Southside town will host the SoBo Brew Fest from 2 to 8 p.m. Saturday. More than 60 craft beers and ciders will be served at Constitution Square located at 100 Main St. in South Boston.
Festivities kick off at 1 p.m. for VIP ticket holders and at 2 p.m. for general admission ticket holders.
Advance tickets may be purchased at the Visitor Center in South Boston or online at www.gohalifaxva.com/sobo-brewfest. General admission tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door for six tasting tickets, and VIP tickets are $45 in advance and $50 at the door for 12 tasting tickets. The VIP ticket holders will have access to the festival one hour prior to the gates opening at 2 p.m. and will have special beer tastings during that hour.
All ticket holders will receive a commemorative glass. One ticket will provide for a 3-ounce sample or three tickets for a pint of beer. Additional tickets may be purchased on-site.
This year’s festival will feature several ciders from Virginia cideries, including Buskey out of Richmond.
In addition to the variety of craft beers, festival-goers will be treated to music by local blues-rock trio Burn the Batteau and the outlaw Americana quartet Turkey Scratch. There will be food trucks on site cooking up provisions throughout the day.
The SoBo Brew Fest will be held rain or shine. Patrons are encouraged to bring chairs; however, tents and coolers are not allowed at this event. There will be a strict no re-entry policy in place on Saturday.
