Beers, beers and more beers: three sudsy events to check out this weekend

Several beer events will make a splash in the Lowcountry this weekend.

The Lowcountry will get its fill of froth on Saturday with several beer-centric events around town. Grab a designated driver and you might just be able to make all three.

General admission is $5 and VIP tickets are $25, which includes three beer tokens and food. For more information, visit
