In the South, people tend to love their beer, their bourbon and their mouthwatering barbecue. When you combine these three staples of Southern culture, you get a triple threat that is worthy of some serious celebration. This year’s Beer, Bourbon & BBQ Fest is just the celebration that such a combination calls for, and trust us when we say that you won’t want to miss out.

Your admission to this festival, scheduled for August 5th - 6th, gets you a souvenir tasting glass so you can enjoy an all-you-care-to-taste sampling from a selection of 60 beers on tap and 40 bourbons. You’ll also have access to some of the best barbecue vendors when you get hungry, live music all day, and seminars in the Tasting Theater.

The main stage will be alive with contests throughout the day, including the BBQ Bean Eating Contest and the BBQ Babe Contest. As if this wasn’t already enough to entertain you for the whole weekend, there will be cool exhibits to browse, including Brewermania, hot sauces, barbecue accessories, and a cigar tent.

Ticket prices range from $25 to $200 for this jam-packed event. For festival information and rules about minors, designated drivers and more, visit this site.
