Spend a summer afternoon sipping at the annual southern feast that is the Beer, Bourbon and BBQ Festival at Cary's Koka Booth Amphitheatre.

The event is Saturday, Aug. 4 and tickets go on sale this Friday, June 8. Get them now, because this event has sold out in the past.

Admission buys you a souvenir glass and all the samples you desire of 60 beers and 40 bourbons. Food from a variety of barbecue vendors is available for sale.

Listen to great live music and learn about how your favorites are brewed to sipping perfection. 

There are contests for girls – Miss BBQ Babe – and guys – Best Beer Belly.

A limited number of VIP tickets are available for Friday night, which includes a full barbecue dinner ($55) and for both Friday and Saturday (the Grand Poobah, $75).
