The Downtown Hattiesburg Association will host the 8th Annual Hattiesburg Craft Beer Festival on Saturday, June 13, 2020, 6-9PM (VIP entry at 5PM) at Town Square Park. This event takes place during FestivalSouth, Mississippi’s only multi-week, multi-genre arts festival, setting this event apart from other beer festivals, as we showcase the art and artists behind craft beer.
The Hattiesburg Craft Beer Festival will honor our craft beer industry, as well as the food and tourism industries that go hand-in-hand with the world of craft beer. Eight years ago marked a monumental shift in how Mississippians enjoyed craft beer. In 2012, a small change in beer laws brought about a huge economic and cultural impact that is still being felt. Hattiesburg is excited to celebrate eight years of industry growth with all of the breweries from around the nation who have made Mississippi their market.
We will also pay special tribute the breweries who make Mississippi their home. Our Mississippi breweries will be invited to showcase not only their beer, but also their local food and tourism. Attendees will not only get to meet the people behind the beer, but also sample a food pairing from a local restaurant, and meet local tourism representatives from our fellow beer cities throughout Mississippi.
