The two-day event features 200 beers and ciders from local, regional and international brewers. There will be live music, a karaoke stage, food and games. The event also is a fundraiser for the Humane Society of Utah.

Hosted by City Weekly, the event has grown steadily since its inception, outgrowing its two previous locations — Gallivan Center and Washington Square. Last year, the event moved to the fairpark and attracted 7,000 attendees, proof that America’s beer renaissance has arrived in Utah, organizers say.
