Spring is in the air — and we can already taste the pretzels and beer. Here are two springtime beer festivals brewing on our radar.
Parkville Microbrew Fest: The 11th annual Parkville Microbrew Fest
is set for 1-5 p.m. Saturday, April 26 at English Landing Park in downtown Parkville. More than 50 breweries from Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota, Colorado, Oregon and California will dole out samples of their beers.
Tickets cost $30 atparkvillemicrobrewfest.com
, or $35 at the door on the day of the festival. But this popular and well established beer festival has been known to sell out fast, so if you want to go, don’t wait that long.
Boulevardia: Last December, we broke the news that Boulevard was planning an annual street festival in the West Bottoms called Boulevardia. Tickets to the beer-tasting portion of that three-day festival, which is scheduled for June 13-15, go on sale at 10 a.m. March 5. Boulevard hasn’t released prices yet — check here and boulevardia.com
