The Mississippi Gulf Coast Chamber of Commerce will look to hit a home run Saturday with their inaugural Biloxi Chamber Craft Beer Fest from 4-7 p.m. at MGM Park.

F.E.B. Distributing and Mitchell Distributing will bring a bevy of beers that represent the South, such as Abita’s Strawgator and Grayton Beer Company’s Salt of the Gulf.

Mississippi microbreweries also will be represented. Chandeleur Island Brewing Company will bring their Lil Miss Sour and Freemason. Biloxi Brewing will feature their Biloxi Blonde and Breakfast Blend brews. Lazy Magnolia will offer their Skeleton Key and their longstanding Southern Pecan. Mississippi Brewing will be represented by their Courage and Red Headed Step Child.

There will be an array of flavors to sample. Einstock Beer will offer their Arctic Beer and White Ale. Founders will be represented with Harvest Ale and Rubaeus. Lagunitas will offer a Little Sumpin Sumpin. In all, there will be at least 28 breweries represented.

Rachael Seymour, Chamber director, said they are excited about this first-time event.

“The craft beer industry is growing on the Gulf Coast and we’re enjoying partnering with MGM to bring something unique to the Coast,” she said.
