Craft beer festival set for March

TUPELO — This city will host a craft beer festival with samples of at least 60 different beers.

The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports the March 2 festival in comes about a year after the state enacted a law increasing the legal limit of alcohol by weight in beer. The law opened the state for more imported and domestic craft beers.

Matt Leff of Nashville-based Rhizome Productions says he is working with local distributors, retailers, restaurants and breweries to have them represented at the event.

Tickets are $35 online or $40 at the gate. Only adults at least 21 years old will be allowed to buy the 1,000 available tickets.

The ticket price includes a glass brandy snifter for tasting samples of 60 to 80 beers from at least 25 breweries.
