If you've been to any FBC parties, you already know they are great at providing food and entertainment at these events and this party is no exception. Mitch Johnston will be providing live music starting at 4pm, while Rondale and the Kit Katz take the stage at 7pm. Food Trucks from The Hungry Owl and Bean & Bistro will be selling food to accompany all those great beer offerings.

There is a $10 admission fee which includes a commemorative glass and one beer of your choice. The first 200 attendees will receive a free FBC bottle-opener keychain, While beer pours will be $4 during the entire event.

FBC has been making incredible beer since day one and obviously working very hard for the last two years to become a premier, and currently only, local craft beer brewery in lower Alabama. Now they are kicking-off 2015 in a big way and we look forward to the rolling out of the bottling line. I'm sure a lot of FBC fans will be transporting a fair amount of those bottles into the Pensacola area. That is until the monumental day, we hope, when FBC starts distributing to our area. Make plans now to attend the celebration and found out what FBC is planning for 2015.
