[image-1]When it comes to beer festivals in this town, some are off-the-charts awesome (Brewvival, we’re looking at you), and some are outright terrible (Can we please not run out of beer?). The Mt. P Beer Fest, now in its third year, easily gets a place on a top three beer events of the year. It’s very well organized. No tickets required here. Beer lovers can sample as many brews as they want without having to worry about tickets or beer shortage. Hosted by the Mt. Pleasant Mellow Mushroom, the event has a great selection of brews, manageable lines, and plenty of food to soak it all up.

Get your tickets here.

General admission gets you unlimited access to over 80 local and national brews. That’s right, once you have a wristband, no drink tickets are necessary. You can also splurge and go VIP for $45, which will get you preferred parking, a seat in the VIP section with special limited release beers, food, and more.

The beer fest benefits the Carolina Youth Development Center, the oldest non-profit organization in Charleston.

The restaurant will also be open so you can keep track of the football scores and satisfy any pizza cravings. Last year’s event outdid the first year, and we expect the turnout to be even bigger this time around, so get your tickets soon.

UPDATE: VIP tickets have sold out. General admission tickets are still available. Additional breweries have been added.
