Update: You're reading about 2010's festival, head to the Brewvival topic page for the latest.
Still, should the weather not hold, don't fret too much as the main festivities are to be held under a large tent. -- Also bring a lawn chair to enjoy the outdoor music at this festival that runs from noon to 6.
So far the line-up looks to be stunning and steers clear of the generic brews. Barrel-aged beers, specialties, and more are all set to be on tap (check out the ever-growing beer list to the right.)
There will be many speakers from the beer world, most notably Greg Koch of California's Stone Brewing Co. Providing music will be The Butterbeans, FolkGrass, The V-Tones, and Jason and the Juggernauts.
Tickets are $50 in advance and $60 at the gate; $20 designated driver tickets are available at the door. You can pick up the tickets online.
If you're coming to the festival from downtown or the Aloft in North Charleston, transportation is available -- a real plus if you don't have a designated driver for the event that's expected to get a turnout of some 2,000 at The Navy Yard at Noisette in North Charleston.
