Tupelo Craft Beer Festival gearing up for Saturday

The second annual Tupelo Craft Beer Festival is Saturday, and it will include six Mississippi craft breweries. They are among the 30 companies participating in the event that will be held from noon to 5 p.m. in Fairpark.

“Last year we had only three from Mississippi, but this year we’ll have six – Southern Prohibition Brewing, Crooked Letter Brewing, Lazy Magnolia, Lucky Town, Yalobusha Brewing and Oxford Brewing,” said festival organizer Matt Leff. Craft Beer 14 logo 1
