Tickets for the third annual Cooper-Young Regional Beerfest will go on sale online at beerfest.cooperyoung.org on Sept. 7.

Physical tickets can first be purchased at the Rock For Love Overton Square Street Festival on Sept. 8, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Madison Avenue. Rock For Love benefits the Church Health Center.

A portion of the Cooper-Young Regional Beerfest ticket sales that day will be donated to Rock For Love.

After the Rock For Love event, beerfest tickets will be available for purchase at the Cooper-Young Community Association offices at 2298 Young Ave. Check the CYCA website, www.cooperyoung.org, for office hours.

Tickets will cost $35 before the festival and $40 on the day of the festival if it’s not sold out. CYCA members get a $5 discount.

The Cooper-Young Regional Beerfest on Oct. 13 features only craft beers from within a day’s drive of Memphis. The festival benefits the Cooper-Young Community Association, a non-profit organization that maintains the Trestle Art, organizes clean-ups, and does many other things in this Midtown neighborhood.

This year’s festival will include food from Central BBQ, Stone Soup Café and Sweet Grass. Goner Records will be playing Memphis music. Celtic Crossing, Memphis Flyer, Memphis Sport and WEVL are also sponsors.

“Craft brewing is growing in America and the Mid-South, and our festival is growing with it,” Andy Ashby, CYRB chairman, said. “We’ve added several new breweries this year, including several which aren’t yet available in Memphis. That said, we’re still making sure to keep lines short while focusing on educating people about good beer.”
