El Paso’s largest craft beer festival, Sun City Craft Beer Festival, powered by iHeart Media, is brewing up some fun on Saturday, April 29 from 1 pm to 8 pm at the downtown Convention Center Plaza.

The festival will feature more than one hundred and fifty local and regional craft beers to taste and buy.

Admission includes a Whole Foods Festival mug to fill up and take home, access to beer gardens, a liquor garden, delicious food trucks.

There will even be giant Jenga, human foosball, Plinko, trash can pong and more. Lessons are also available from the professional brewers on how to brew beer. The KHEY Stage will feature Garden Grove, Austin Freeman & The Other Half and the Power Stage will host a live Power 102.1 DJ.

“What continues to make this festival so exciting is not only are we featuring our very own El Paso breweries, but we are working with the local beer distributors to assure that we are getting brand new and unique brews that haven’t even hit the El Paso market,” said Nahum Avila, organizer for Sun City Craft Beer Festival. “Beer lovers can experience all the best craft beers in one location.”
