Recap of the River City Brewers Festival

It was a cold and rainy day, but the beer still flowed freely at the River City Brewers Festival Saturday.

The event, which featured an afternoon session as well as a night session, drew hundreds to Handy Park in Downtown Memphis.

I poured Land Shark Lager and Shock Top Belgian White as a festival volunteer during the daytime session.

The beers at the festival — there were more than 75 available — were mostly brews you could find on Memphis retail store shelves, but the variety was good. Some of my favorite beers of the day were Yazoo Brewing Company’s Hop Project, Sierra Nevada’s Torpedo, New Belgium’s Mighty Arrow and Schlafly’s Oatmeal Stout.
