Thousands of pretzel-wearing brewski fans will flock to the Durham Athletic Park when the World Beer Festival returns to the Bull City this Saturday, October 5.

For the uninitiated, the festival offers two sessions, one from 12pm-4pm and the other from 6-10pm.  All Attendees  have access to more than 90 craft brewery selections, live music, and beer education. Admission includes a sampling glass and unlimited 2oz tastings from the festival’s beer purveyors.

With more than 4,500 people expected at each session, parking is going to be tight. Lucky for you, this year there will be a free Bull City Connector. The BCC will run a special route from 10:30am to 10:30pm from Durham Station to the fun. Park in the American Tobacco North Parking Deck (event pricing will be in effect) and look for signs to direct you to the BCC Beer Fest shuttle.

Carpooling is encouraged. If you’ve got a few extra seats in your vehicle, you should try out the new Single Trip Matching Tool from ShareTheRideNC.org. Registration takes just a few minutes. After logging in to the site, hover on “Find Matches” and navigate to “Single Trip Matching.”  Post your trip details so that potential carpoolers can contact you. Got a ticket but don’t have a ride? Visit STRNC.org and look for other folks who are headed your way. For more ways to get to the festivities, visit the World Beer Festival’s page. You’ll get details about public transit, STRNC.org, and the Bridge Bus.
