Beer tasting, anyone?

If you're going to be in or near New Orleans Saturday, and you like beer -- really like beer -- we've been told WYES' 25th annual International Beer Tasting will have over 300 beers, ales, lagers and homebrews for the sampling from 6 to 8 p.m.

Advance tickets for the Lakefront Arena event are $35 per person and $30 for groups of 6 or more. Buy them at Or, at the door, $45.

Roughly speaking, that's 300 beers in one place for the price of about 7 to 15 anywhere else. Just be sure to call a taxi and plan to stay overnight. And with brewers named Mystic Krewe of Brew and My Goat is on Fire All Grainers, how could you resist?
