World Beer Festival: Durham, N.C.
The 11th annual World Beer Festival is set for Saturday in Durham, N.C. Sponsored by All About Beer magazine, where my Beyond Beer column appears, the event has been sold out for weeks. The World Beer Festival features beer from 150 breweries and is held across two sessions at the historic Durham Athletic Park, the location for much of the baseball scenes in the film Bull Durham.
If you have tickets, plan to stop by the All About Beer tent for tastings and seminars scheduled during both sessions. I'm scheduled to speak at 8 p.m. about "Weird Beers at the Festival" and will highlight six of the more odd offerings from the world of beer.
