Memphis Brewfest - 2012The spring beer festival season in Memphis continues this month with the 3rd annual Memphis Brewfest, which will be held Saturday, April 21, in Downtown Memphis.

The festival is one of the premier beer tasting events in the Mid-South and features hard-to-find craft beers, international beers and homebrews.

The event, which takes place outdoors in the courtyard of AutoZone Park, starts at 4 p.m. and ends at 7:3o.

Advance tickets are $36 and can be purchased online. After April 15, tickets go up to $39. A maximum of 2,000 tickets will be sold. Net proceeds from the festival benefit Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy and the Memphis Redbirds Foundation.

So what’s new this year?

Joe’s Wines & Liquors has stepped up and will be a Tier I sponsor. In addition, there will be an auction for a New Belgium Fat Tire Cruiser bicycle, with proceeds benefiting the festival’s two charities.

On April 17, there will be a special Sports 56 WHBQ remote broadcast at the Downtown location of the Flying Saucer, with beer specials.

And on the day of the festival, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., there will be a brewers/distributors brunch, which is open to the public. The pre-beerfest gathering at the Flying Saucer will feature a buffet that includes breakfast tacos, shrimp & grits and plenty of fresh fruit.
