Great Southern Beer Festivals is a beer festival focused on beers coming out of the South. We love beer, we love the south and we love meeting new people and trying new things. And then, we decided to bring the Great Southern Beer Festival to cities all over the south. In addition to craft beer, there will be southern cuisine, southern rock music and covers, games, and some friendly competition.
We promise to bring the beer, music, and fun. You bring your friends and family and sense of craft beer-venture. We might even have a few surprises for you throughout the day!
