The Druid City Music Hall will offer 40 craft beers from more than two dozen U.S. breweries Saturday at its first-ever Beer Festival.

Paige Parrucci, a spokesperson for the venue, said what started as a small idea blossomed into plans to put on the city's premier beer festival.

To that end, this Saturday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., DCMH will host 26 breweries with 40 different beers to taste inside the recently renovated space.

The event will coincide nicely with the Crimson Tide's away game against the Arkansas Razorbacks, which is set to kick off at 2:30, and Parrucci said the Music Hall will have the match on a 16-foot high-definition LED screen and "the best sound system in Tuscaloosa."

“I believe this will be an awesome opportunity for us to partner with some of our favorite breweries. We are also excited to introduce the new and improved music hall to folks that may not have been here since the renovations," she said. "Also, the value is amazing great beer samples, a t-shirt, a commemorative pint glass, and the Alabama game - I can’t think of a better way to spend the afternoon.”

Parrucci said tickets are available on DCMH's website and are expected to sell out. Passes cost $50 each, but attendees can get them for half off until midnight Friday using the code in the Facebook post embedded above.
