Pop quiz: What are you doing tomorrow and the next day? If you enjoy delicious beer, scrumptious food and excellent music in a convivial atmosphere, you’ll be heading to the fourth annual Magic City Brewfest! The good folks at Free the Hops (why haven’t you joined yet?), whose efforts resulted in the lifting of the six percent cap on the alcohol content of beers last year, are once again putting on this wonderful event! There are still a few tickets available, so don’t be left out.
Because of Free the Hops’ efforts, Alabamians are now able to enjoy a much wider range of flavors and styles of beer than before the ABV limit was raised. If you haven’t yet had the opportunity to explore the world of beer that the new law permits, you’ll have your chance this weekend as once again the MCBF has an all-star lineup of craft-brewed goodness, food and music. It all takes place at historic Sloss this Friday and Saturday!
And, remember, though the hops are much freer than they used to be, the law books here in Bama are still chock-full of Prohibition-era gobbledygook that prevents many breweries from distributing their craft-brewed deliciousness here. Not only is the MCBF a great time, it supports a great cause! If you haven’t joined yet, join today.
Hope to see you there!
Update: Well, the fourth annual MCBF was a rousing success! If you missed out, be sure to get your tickets early for next year and keep an eye out for more Free the Hops events throughout the year. Event wrap-ups here and here.
