More than 30 Midwest brewers will showcase their craft beers in Peavey Plaza Saturday, Sept. 11, for the fourth annual Autumn Brew Review.

The brewers will showcase a variety of ales, stouts, ambers and porters.

The festival, sponsored by the Downtown Council and the Minnesota Craft Brewer's Guild, a nonprofit that promotes the brewing industry, will feature music by the Jaztronauts, a jazz band; Cannery Row, a bluegrass and folk group; roots rockers Best Fight Story; and U Joint, an indie-rock band.

Event-goers will also have the opportunity to ask the brew masters questions and receive unlimited samples of local beers. The first 1,500 people at the Brew Review will also receive commemorative tasting glasses. Peavey Plaza is at South 12th Street & Nicollet Mall.

Advance tickets are $22.50 and $27 the day of the event. For more information or to buy tickets, call the Downtown Council at 338-3807.
