Think beer festivals are just for the warm months? Not so! Bundle up for two winter beer events coming up in just a few weeks.
First up is the Winter Beerfest at The Masquerade. Happening January 26, 2013, this brew-filled event will feature more than 100 beers and four stages with live music. Tickets are $35 in advance, $40 after January 17 (TODAY!), or $48 at the door. Tickets includes a souvenir cup and all the beer samples. Food - including some food truck favorites - will be on sale. Last year this event sold out, so you'd be wise to buy now!
Next up is the Winter Beer Carnival on February 9, 2013. Taking over Atlantic Station, attendees will enjoy more than 100 brews (see the list here), plus a variety of nostalgic carnival games, and a DJ to keep the vibe upbeat. More good news - most games are included in the price of admission. Food will be available for purchase. Tickets are $20 for Designated Drivers, $40 for General Admission and $60 for VIP (entry an hour early, plus VIP bathrooms and access to special beers).
