FOUNTAIN SQUARE (FOX19) -

It's a beer lovers paradise at Fountain Square this weekend as Beerfest kicks off. 

Over 200 craft beers, live bands and food trucks will be available for people to enjoy. Beers from the Queen City and all over the country will be available for sampling.

You can buy presale VIP tickets until 5:00 PM tonight for $40.  That gets you access to a special area with rare, expensive or hard to find beers, and your own restrooms.  It also gives you 25 sampling tickets. 

Each sample is a full five ounce pour. You can also buy pints for $5 each during the tasting. 

You can buy your tickets at the gate and either get a 16 ounce cup with two drink tickets or a five ounce sample cup and five samples.  Designated drivers can get in for $10 dollars. 

Thousands of people are expected to go to Beerfest.  It runs from 6:00 PM until 11:00 PM Friday and Saturday night. 

New this year will be a tailgating event on Sunday.  Fans can cheer on the Bengals as they take on the Falcons and sample craft beers on Fountain Square.
