Grapevine’s very popular craft beer festival, Beertopia, is scheduled to take place March 10 from 2-6pm in Fort Mill, SC. There will be between 120-150 beers available for sampling from at least 40 Brewers. Among the Brewers participating are Abita, Olde Mecklenburg Brewery, Sweetwater, Thirsty Dog, Sierra Nevada, Magic Hat, and NoDa Brewery. For the second year, there will also be a Homebrewer Competition with voting between 1-3 pm. Beertopia is designed as an event for beer lovers to try new beers so come with an adventurous attitude and prepared to discover a new favorite.
General Admission is $30 and increases the day of the event. Ticket price includes beer samples. Designated driver tickets are available for $15. Due to space constrictions (festival takes place in parking lot behind Grapevine) only a limited number of tickets, 1,500, will be sold. This event sold out in 2011 so get your tickets early. One dollar from each ticket sold will be donated to Pints for Prostates.
Beertopia will take place rain or shine. Live music performed by U-Phonik and lots of yummy food will be available for purchase including Crabcake Sliders and Shrimp Tacos from the neighboring FishMarket, brats and Irish Food from SixPence Pub, and the Wingzaa Food Truck will be on site with pizza and chicken wings.
