The 14th Annual Magic City Brewfest is scheduled for Saturday, June 6, 2020 from 4:00 to 8:00 PM at Sloss Furnaces in Birmingham. We are extremely excited about bringing this event home!
The Magic City Brewfest is the premier beer event in Birmingham that showcases the very best work that craft brewers can do. The focus is on providing guests a great experience with amazing beers. Guests will have access to the best beers they can find in Alabama, including hard-to-find beers that are not always widely available in the market.
The festival is hosted by Free the Hops, a grassroots organization formed to bring the highest-quality beers in the world to Alabama. Free the Hops successfully advocated for game-changing legislation like the 2009 Gourmet Beer Bill that legalized beers with an ABV above 6% and the 2011 Brewery Modernization Act that legalized brewery and distillery tasting rooms in Alabama. It also supported homebrew legalization and serves as a watchdog for beer consumers in Alabama.
There is a lot of work ahead for the volunteers and partners, and you can follow Magic City Brewfest’s Facebook page for the most up-to-date information. Tickets will first be offered to members of Free the Hops before being opened up to the general public.
