Beers, ciders and specialty sodas from all over the world will be on tap Saturday at the 12th annual Billings Brewfest.
More than 115 different flavors of beer and alcohol-free drinks will be offered at the festival, which runs from 1 to 11 p.m. Saturday at the Shrine Auditorium, 1125 Broadwater Ave. Admission and parking are free. Official festival beer glasses may be purchased for $5 and for $10 you can buy a glass and five beer samplers. Glasses from previous years will not be honored. Photo IDs are required.
The Brewfest has grown substantially over its 12-year history, organizer Brian Kjensmo said.
"It's the start of the big beer season," Kjensmo said. "People are thinking about fishing, camping and barbecues."
The event also includes live music by Ron Horton and Friends, food and trade show booths to browse through. Food vendors include American Classic Pizzeria, Gunsmoke Barbeque and Khantaly's Egg Rolls.
Billings Home Brewers supply will have a complete supply of kits and products for those folks that want to begin brewing their own beverages.
Proceeds go to the Billings Optimist Club to help support youth activities in the community.
