ROANOKE (WSLS 10) - The second

Big Lick Rare Beer Fest

featuring seasonal beers and ones made exclusively for the event kicks off Saturday. 

This year, about 15 breweries will be participating including some regional brews such as Devils Backbone, Sunken City, and Soaring Ridge.

Not only will there be more breweries, but this year City Market vendors will be part of the fun, too.

"We're actually showcasing all the food and how it pairs with beers that we've got on site," says JD Sutphin, Big Lick Entertainment.

Tickets are still available for this year's even. The event sold out within 15 minutes last year. About 500 people attended last year.
