What’s the best way to keep from freezing in the cold month of December? Did you say “turn on the heat” or “a pile of blankets and a crackling fire in the fireplace”? Okay, so maybe you’re right, but we like to think that a stiff drink works just as well. Enter 12 South Winter Warmer, a new beer festival coming to 12 South’s Sevier Park on December 10. An outdoor beer festival in December may seem a little strange, but we bet attendees will be toasty warm after tossing back a beer or ten.
12 South Winter Warmer will showcase the finest stouts, porters, barley wines, winter seasonals and barrel-aged beers from 25 craft breweries, both visiting and local. Food & treats from 12 South Taproom, Burger Up, Jonbalaya Catering, Begley’s Brats & Dogs, Olive & Sinclair and The Bloomy Rind will be available for purchase to soak up some of that booze sloshing around in your belly. Tickets go on sale tomorrow, and you’d better get them fast! The fest can only accommodate 750 people, and you can be sure it will sell out.
UPDATE: Whoa! Tickets sold out in just a few hours. We told you to get them fast.
