After all, you can't just go jumping into a beer-marathon like Beerfest without a little practice.
In the beer world, this "Warm Up" party will be like a nice 5k or even a half-marathon, if you really work at it. There will be some gourmet snacks on hand as well as over 30 craft beers to be tasted, many of which will be featured at Beerfest and others you'll only get a taste of at the "Warm Up."
The cover is $10 and will also net a you a chance to get half off your Beerfest tickets - an offer you'll only be able to get if you attend the "Warm Up." You will also take home a commemorative New Times pint glass to preserve your sudsy memories for years to come.
