HOOVER, Ala. (WBRC) - The city of Hoover is hosting its first Beer Fest this weekend.
The event is set for Sunday from 5 p.m. until 9 p.m. at the Hoover Metropolitan Complex. It will be held on the side patio at the Finley Center.
Gary McClendon, the Sales and Marketing Manager at the Hoover Met Complex, says the idea for Beer Fest started as a way to show courtesy to all the RV visitors expected to arrive this weekend for next week’s SEC Baseball Tournament. Then they decided it would be a good way to raise money for the Hoover Access Program and help send children to Hoover’s sports camps.
“We’re going to have anywhere between 30 to 37 breweries, probably between 75 and 100 different beers,” said McClendon. “We’ll have food trucks, some of your favorites will be here. There will be a live band, ‘The Regals’ will be performing. There will be plenty of things to do. We’re going to have a good time.”
You can purchase early bird tickets through Saturday. Prices start at $10 for designated drivers. Kids 10 and under get in free. You can find more information and order tickets by going to the Hoover Met’s website.
