More than 200 craft and premium beers from local breweries and around the world are up for sampling on Saturday at Festival Park for the Orlando Beer Festival from noon to 6 p.m.

The event will benefit the Milk District Association, and VIP entry is at 11 a.m., which includes a designated VIP area, free entry into the whiskey business tasting station and complimentary gifts and parking.

Attendees must be 21 and over to enter and enjoy the food, wine tasting, interactive games and live music from The Sh-Booms, Mellow Relics, Mike Dunn and The Getbye.

“This is not the typical ‘distributor-driven’ beer fest. In fact, it’s quite the opposite,” according to the Orlando Beer Festival’s website. “Orlando Beer Festival will primarily showcase local and regional craft beer and the local craft beer bars who bring you the best from our region and around the world.”

The festival will also include Tasty Tuesday Food Trucks, a 'big kid play area' and Whiskey Experience, featuring Woodford, Gentleman Jack, Old Forester and more.

General admission tickets bought in advance are $45, and VIP tickets are $65. Tickets bought on the day of the event are $50 for general admission and $70 for VIP. Designated driver tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door.

Tickets can be bought through ticketfly.
