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.
