We have made the very difficult decision to postpone the 2020 Magic City Brewfest, originally scheduled for June 6 at Sloss Furnaces, due to concerns with COVID-19.

This decision was not made lightly. With the health and safety of the community in mind, we simply cannot in good conscience host an event with a few thousand people in early June. Even if we were willing to host the event, it is unclear if large gatherings will be allowed at the time of the festival. With so much planning having been put on hold since March, the time has come to make this unfortunate decision.

We will continue to monitor the situation, and we plan to host this event later in the year. We have been so excited about bringing MCBF back to Sloss, and we had been developing an amazing program to showcase the very best craft brewers have to offer. We are committed to hosting this event as soon as the situation allows for it.

We have also postponed the Rocket City Brewfest, which was scheduled for mid-May.
