The Great Arkansas Beer Festival, or GARBF, will feature more than 400 beers from 150 breweries, including eight beers that were among the top 10 beers of 2017. V.I.P. tickets are $60; regular admission is $30 before June 22 and $40 at the door. Designated non-drinking drivers may get in for $10 (though why they would want to, we don’t know). There will be food for purchase at the event; tickets include all beer samples and a souvenir tasting glass. A portion of proceeds will benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities of Arkansas.
