I had never really been that into craft beer. Give me a bottle of Bud Light Lime and a glass of tequila, and I was good to go. However, lately, I’ve started to get into the craft beer scene.

I was first exposed to the world of craft beers at our first KICKS 105.5 Brews and BBQ Festival in May of 2014. Now, every time I visit my liquor store, I head straight to the craft beer section. Each time, I try and pick out a different craft beer and give it a try.

It’s amazing how the industry has grown in a relatively short period of time. But, then again, after tasting a number of craft beers over the past few years, I can see why.

Now, craft beers are going global on June 11 at our International Beer and Food Festival on the City Center Green in Danbury.

Here's a list of some of the Craft Beers that will be available:

  • Corona Light
  • Dos Equis Special Lager
  • Harp
  • Hoegaarden
  • Modelo Especial
  • Old Speckled Hen
  • Paulaner Hefe-Weissbier Leichte
  • Peroni
  • Unibroue Blanche De Chambley
  • Warsteiner

If you're still new to the craft beer scene, or you just can’t get enough, check out this video, and you’ll get a little history and see why craft beers are THE thing right now.
