KANSAS CITY, Mo. (September 5, 2017) – Flying Saucer and the Kansas City Power & Light District are excited to announce the more than 70 breweries that will pour more than 200 beer samplings for beer lovers in attendance at their ninth annual KC Beer Fest. The festival will also feature over a dozen special tappings of rare and hard-to-find beers, all listed below with the breweries.

The festival will shut down Grand Boulevard between 13th and 14th Streets all morning, beginning at 6 a.m., and afternoon on Saturday, Sept. 9 as thousands of beer fanatics will converge for an afternoon of craft beer samplings, lawn games, local entertainment and philanthropy – a portion of all ticket sales will donate to local nonprofit Drink Local Think Global. The organization focuses its efforts on organizing collaborative events with craft breweries to bring people together through beer in order to raise awareness and funding for the global water crisis. Drink Local Think Global will have a team on site at KC Beer Fest to raise additional funds via raffles and giveaways.

All ticket holders will receive a free souvenir tasting glass and unlimited samplings during the festival from 3-6 p.m. VIP ticket holders will receive early entry in to the festival at 2 p.m., as well as access to an exclusive VIP hospitality area with complimentary appetizers from 2-4 p.m. and private restrooms during the festival.
