The Brews Festival is coming to Greensboro

July 9, 2012 by  

Many believe that beer may be one of the oldest prepared beverages in the world and that its beginnings can be traced to 9500 B.C. Today, brewing continues but it is a more refined process. As the process continues to evolve, many believe the quality of the beverage does as well, which leads people to continue looking for beer with a newer taste and a richer quality. This year, beer-lovers in the Greensboro area will get the opportunity to sample hundreds of beers as they continue their quest for the perfect brew.

On Saturday, July 14, from 2:30 pm – 8:00 pm, the 8th Annual Summertime Brews Festival will take place at the Greensboro Coliseum Complex. There are only a limited number of tickets to the event, so those who are definitely planning to attend may want to purchase tickets online for $30. Any remaining tickets may be purchased at the gate on the day of the event for $35. Participants may want to have some cash on hand, as food and non-alcoholic beverage vendors will be on site, although the beer will be the focus.

Some of the best microbrews will be featured and brewers present may invest in poster printing and banner printing to advertise their craft beers. The Brewmaster tasting event begins at 2:30 pm and, an hour and a half later, the gates will open for those aged 21 and over to discover over 300 beers. There will be live performances by Lauren Light, Darryl Clark, and House of Dues as visitors meander about the premises, searching for the perfect beer.

Participants should plan to drink responsibly. Local cabs are usually outside the venue throughout the festival and at its conclusion.
