It must be spring: it’s almost time for the annual Hot Springs Craft Beer Festival! This year’s event is scheduled for Saturday, May 20th, from 4pm to 8pm at the Hot Springs Farmers & Artisans Market Plaza.
The very first Hot Springs Craft Beer Festival was only three years ago but the festival has grown in leaps and bounds. Last year’s event was supposed to attract upwards of 650 people. More than 1,000 showed! And why not?
The Hot Springs Craft Beer Festival attracts not just a few craft breweries from around the region but a stupendous number of great craft breweries from all around the US! Last year saw more than 100 different breweries in attendance offering over 400 beers to sample.
The Hot Springs Craft Beer Festival is like a who’s who of craft breweries, all under one roof.
A beer lover’s paradise.
The festival includes a section of offering brewing supplies and unique, local items such as artisan chocolates and craft cheeses. Food from some of Hot Springs’ finest restaurants will be available for purchase during the event. There will also be live music to keep you up on your feet and grooving.
This year also sees the return of the 5B5K, also known as the “Five Beer Five K”. This unique event involves running a kilometer, drinking a beer, running another kilometer, and so on until the prerequisite number of kilometers and beers (5) have been met. Great fun, very popular.
The 2017 5B5K will take place Friday, May 19th from 6pm to 9pm. You can read more about it on the 5B5K Facebook page.
