Live music and over 100 craft beers are highlights of the festival.

Fondren Renaissance Foundation, in cooperation with Capital City Beverage and Southern Beverage Company, is pleased to announce a new headliner event addition to the Downtown Fondren Historic District – The Mississippi Craft Beer Festival.

Destined to become an annual addition to the Jackson scene, this year’s festival will take place on Friday, June 26, 2015 and will center around Duling Hall and the grounds of The Shops at Duling School.

Featuring over 100 craft beers, special emphasis will be placed on breweries within Mississippi and nearby bordering states with brewer representatives on hand to discuss their products and brewing methods.

Entertainment for the evening will feature The Delta Mountain Boys on stage in Duling Hall from 7-10pm. A VIP hour will be held at the beginning of the event from 4:30-5:30pm. Held to a limited number of 250 tickets, the VIP hour entitles the ticket holder to unlimited craft beer tastings throughout the early hour, as well as the remainder of the evening, and food from local Fondren eateries. Tickets for the VIP advance hour are $60 each and are limited to 250 persons. Those with VIP tickets also gain entrance for the entire run of the festival.

General admission, from 5:30-9:30pm, is $30 and includes unlimited tastings of all of the products represented. A designated driver or “non-tasting” ticket is available for $10.
