It’s that time of year again! The Queen City Brewers Festival is returning this Saturday, Feb. 2 at The Fillmore. Tickets are nearly sold out for both the afternoon session (12-3 p.m.) and the night session (5-8 p.m.)—you won’t want to miss out on this primetime event.

Whether you’re a QCBF veteran or a first-timer, there’s plenty of new things to look forward to at this year’s festival. Here’s the ultimate preview of what you can expect:

Breweries making their QCBF debuts

Limited edition beers to try

  • Legion Brewing will be releasing a candy-inspired beer in collaboration with CharlotteFive called “Sour Draft Kids”, which will be served exclusively at Legion Brewing’s table at this year’s festival. Then slide on over to the adjacent Legion Brewing SouthPark table to grub on mac and cheese and bison chili samples.
  • Twenty-Six Acres Brewing has crafted an Oatmeal Peanut Butter Porter (OPP) they’re dubbing Nutty by Nature.
  • D9 Brewing will be going off the rails with “Ozzy”—a sour ale ringing in at a delicious 14% with punches of peaches and champagne flavors.
  • Newcomers, Pilot Brewing, isn’t shy about their first time. Try their Pumpkin Saison, Cinnamon Bun Brown and Hibiscus Gose.
  • Hop heads, douse your palate with piney, citrusy and juicy deliciousness from HeistResident Culture and King Canary Brewing—to name a few.
