ALBERTVILLE, Ala. -- The Downtown Albertville Brewfest is gearing up for its second year.
The festival kicked off for the first time last year and is getting ready for another go in just a few weeks. "It will feature about 100 brews from about 30 different breweries mostly scattered across Alabama," event coordinator Justin Quarles says, "We're going to have two musical acts this year, and about five food vendors. We are also going to feature a tiny home from Mount Olive for people to tour."
The event will be held in downtown Albertville at the farmers market parking lot. The event will be held on October 29 from 1 - 6 and will feature various experiences. Visitors can buy tickets for beer sampling only, a combination of beer and local wine tastings, or simply just wine tastings from Jules J. Berta Vineyards. Those ticket prices vary.
Organizers are hoping to top last year, which they say was a success. "We had a really good turnout," Quarles says, "People have been asking me when are we doing it again, so we're really excited about this time."
Tickets can be bought online at and the event, but organizers say to get them now, because the event might sell out. There are designated driver tickets for a reduced cost. The football games will be on during the festival.
