[image-1]Nothing says late summer fun like beer in a ballpark, and nothing says late summer throw-down like 100 beers in the Joseph P. Riley Jr. Stadium. Trust us, we’ve gone, we’ve imbibed, we’ve conquered riding a mechanical bull. This is one beer fest where the entrance fee is worth every shiny penny.

From 7 to 10 p.m. on Sat. Aug. 26, enter the stadium to sample beers from around the world, including ales, stouts, lagers, pilsners, and specialty brews. Kickin’ Chicken, BKed, Roadside Seafood, and Koa Bowls will be onsite selling eats to soak up all those suds. Midnight City Band and The Blue Plantation Band will perform, plus there will be local vendors selling merch and the Charleston Fun Factory will be on hand with that beloved bull.

General admission tickets are $30 in advance, $35 day-of, and VIP tickets (early entry with access to VIP lounge) are $60. This year there are also Premium VIP tickets on sale for $85. These bad boys get you exclusive access to the Riley Park Club from 6 to 7 p.m, a sampling and mixology class, 25 beer tickets, and access to the VIP lounge which has snacks and specialty beer sampling.

For those heroes who take on designated driver roles, DD wristbands are available for $15 (and your good karma is infinite).
