Parkville Microfest this weekend

See also

The 8th annual Parkville Microfest will take place tomorrow, Saturday April 30th from 1pm-5pm. "Parkville," as the festival has come to be called, is considered by many to be Kansas City's best beer festival. This year over 30 breweries from throughout the Midwest will be in attendance, and in most cases the beers being served will be poured by the people who brew it.

"That's what makes Parkville so special," explains Heath Cooper, a regular attendee of the festival. "not to mention, a lot of the beers being poured there can't be found in stores."

Many times, brewers make special batches just for Parkville Microfest. Jeremy Danner, a brewer at Boulevard Brewing Co., mentioned a few special beers they will be pouring this year that included Dubbel, Tripel w/ Brett, Love Child #2, Hoppy Wheat, and Double Wide IPA served from a firkin. For some, Boulevard's offerings alone would be worth the $20 entry.

The festival is held at English Landing Park which sits on the banks of the Missouri river. The scenery, mixed with live music, great food, and of course tasty beer makes for a wonderful way to spend a Saturday afternoon. See you at the festival.
