Bacon Brew & Que returns to Tuscaloosa on August 25 and tickets are now on sale for the fifth annual event.

The festivities will take place at the Tuscaloosa River Market for the second straight year, and the 2018 edition will be spread out much more than last summer. Beer stands will be set up along the Riverwalk and in front of the River Market building so there will be plenty of space to move around and enjoy the afternoon.

This year the gates will open at 3PM with the first 90 minutes being open for VIP ticket holders. General admission will begin at 4:30PM and sampling will last until 7PM. This year is expected to be bigger and better than the first four as it celebrates its 5th anniversary.

There are three different ticket options again this year, which you can see below. One big change this year is that you can SAVE MONEY by buying your tickets early. See all of those details here.
