World Beer Festival is back in town

COLUMBIA (WACH) - A Columbia favorite is back in town.

The World Beer Festival is back at the Columbia Metro Center.

There are over 80 breweries at the Festival to make sure there is something for everyone.

And the man who is responsible for the Festival explained where the concept and name of the festival came from.

"We bring together 150 craft beers into one room and provide 2 oz. servings of them, which gives everyone a chance to explore the whole world of beer." says Daniel Bradford, the publisher of "All About Beer" magazine, which puts on the event.

This is the World Beer Festival's 6th year running.
