The first of what 17 North plans to make an annual beer fest will be held on April 1, 2012, but it's no April Fool's joke.

The breweries are 100% South Carolinian, with local stalwarts PalmettoWestbrook, and Holy City joining forces with Myrtle Beach's New South Brewing, brand new Bluffton outfit Heirloom Brewing, and even some wares from everyone's favorite foamy facial hair gang.

A $20 beer pass will get you 8 five-ounce samples, and a sampling glass you can take home. $10 gets you a pass through the 17 North's BBQ Buffet. An advance ticket for $25 will get you both. Live music will be rocking all day, part of the proceeds will benefit East Cooper Community Outreach and Pet Helpers.

17 North Roadside kitchen is located at 3563 North Highway 17 in Mount Pleasant. Call them at (843) 606-2144 for more info.
