The 9th Annual Cooper-Young Beerfest has attracted a record number of regional brewers to raise funds for the Cooper-Young Community Association.

This event will take place on Saturday, October 20th, 1pm-5pm, and will have 37 regional breweries and two home-brew clubs, located in the Midtown Autowerks parking lot, 795 Cooper Street.

Tickets are $50, and include one mug for sample beers. Tickets are limited, but you get to talk to representatives from the actual brewery. This means you get to taste the beer and ask questions from the distributor themselves.

Every cent goes to the Cooper-Young Community Association. It’s the biggest fundraiser of the year, and it’s completely staffed by volunteers.
